MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – She’s been named ”Sexiest Woman Alive,” ”Person of the Year.” “Nobel Peace Prize Winner,” among the dozens of other insignificant awards and honors she received in the Philippines and abroad.
So, at this stage of her colorful career, what is Rappler CEO Maria Ressa’s remaining wish before she begins jail time for her cyber libel conviction as recently affirmed by her country’s Court of Appeals?
In an exclusive interview with The Adobo Chronicles, Ressa intimated her one last wish before becoming a jail inmate: the Pulitzer Prize.
She hopes to bag this prestigious writing award with the upcoming release of a new book she just wrote, titled “How To Stand Up To A Dictator.”
Ressa said it doesn’t matter whether the book sells or not, as long as she clinches the award she’s been dreaming about.
