I was luckily given this opportunity, together with 4 other moms, to be in a promotional video for Smart Parenting & Calpol Philippines, and I thought I’d share with you the crazy moments before all of this happened.
It was something I truly didn’t expect because when I attended the pre-interview, there were several times when my mind went blank!
