Int’l humanitarian worker launches book on survival


Hannah A. Papasin
Writer. Critic. Professor. She started writing since primary school and now has two published textbooks on communication. A film buff, she's a Communication, Media Literacy and Journalism Professor of the University of St. La Salle-Bacolod, and has a Master's Degree in English.

Lourdes Ibarra embodies the term “survivor”. 

A multi-awarded international humanitarian, she has seen up close strife and poverty – and herself has dealt with her own personal struggles – and survived.  A death of a son, two kinds of cancer.

But she managed to rise above them all.

All these are documented in her book, Being Unstoppable: A Journey to Success; A Life of Journey and Adventure.

The three-part book details her journey starting from life as a college instructor, to her humanitarian work in countries like Sudan, Kenya, and Afghanistan, up to experiencing the pain of losing her son.
