May Klaire Parparan, of Isabela, Negros Occidental, who was born with a cleft lip, as a child, had dreamt of becoming a nurse.
She had been raised with a lot of love so she felt special despite her deformity, until one day when she was 7 years old, a teenager asked: “How can you become a nurse, nurses are beautiful, you’re different?”
