A Writer’s Vision

In writing the Book Philippine Literature Today, Doria envisions to be part of the CHANGE that President Benigno Aquino Jr would like to address the youth of today when it comes to the new trends and ways in education. ” I want my students to appreciate Philippine literature using the student centered EXPERIENTIAL based type of learning the course,” she says.

“The book hopes to reach the collegiate and highschool students and youth in connection with the K-12 program that is to be implemented in 2016,” she adds.

In relation to her first published book Humanities Today, Doria says “Humanities and Literature are like sisters that they go hand in hand by creative appreciation through writing stories, essays, poetry and the like. Literature brings us to minutiae of the past. It brings us back to revisit the history of our past, how our great grandfathers fought for freedom and change.”
