MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – There’s no stopping Maria Ressa from reaping more awards and citations, notwithstanding several criminal charges she is facing in one of her home countries , the Philippines.
The Rappler CEO was among the 2019 Influence Peddlers of TIME Magazine which last year also named her one of the Persons of the Year.
Ressa joins well-loved world personalities also on TIME’s 2019 list, including Donald Trump. Need we say more?
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – They’ve both graced the covers of magazines— Maria Ressa as one of Esquire’s sexiest women alive, and Matteo Guidicelli as Inside Showbiz’ hearthrob Filipino-Italian actor.
Matteo recently made headlines when he joined the Philippine Army Reserves.
Not to be outdone, the Rappler CEO signed up for the U.S. Army reserves.
Ressa is a dual citizen of the Philippines and the United States.
