Nancy Binay is a Simple Housewife

I had the chance to meet Nancy Binay and handle her in media training on the week when she was going to file her candidacy. She struck me as a really simple person.  I thought that was a breath of fresh air.  She did not like politics, she would rather be in the background, she did not want an image enhancement coach, nor a personal shopper, nor a beauty consultant.

“Then what did you want to gain from your training with TalkShop?” “I wanted to say my message and make sure that I say it right.”

And what is Nancy’s message? What does she stand for?

I handled Nancy when she trained with us at TalkShop.  She is a very light person to be around. She knew who she is and will not compromise what she stands for.  She understands that she is and always will be her father’s daughter, supporter, and assistant.  And yet she is also her own person.

I will vote for Nancy not because she became my student.  I am proud and privileged to have met someone who is both simple and substantial.  I am happy that she is running for office.  And I sincerely hope she wins.  I will support whatever she stands for because she has the clearheadedness of a simple housewife who will represent only what is right.  Nancy Binay reminds me of my mom who is careful in her language but does not mince words to please anyone.  As a matter of fact, she is tactful yet direct that’s why she pleases almost everyone.  Nancy reminds all of us of who we must represent whenever we communicate our beliefs.  Ourselves, no more, no less. I will vote for Nancy Binay because I love the Philippines.  I will vote for the right candidates for the reasons that I love my country and  I care about the Filipino.

For sure, Nancy Binay has a lot to learn.  But I will still vote for her because her grounding is solid.  She will learn to be a better leader, better public servant,  and better human being along the way.  This is possible because she has the intelligence and heart to serve.  She is a good person who has nothing fake about her. She stands out as an aberration because of this and not so much her family name. Sans make-up, facial treatments, fancy outfit, she is surely the candidate to beat.

In closing and perhaps on a lighter note,  I am very happy that Nancy Binay drafts her own speeches. Both her Filipino and English are flawless.  She is the same Nancy you see on TV as in person.  She is easily understood because she understands herself and  whatever she is talking about.  She will not say nor stand for  anything she herself is not convinced about. Nancy Binay is a simple housewife who is more qualified than 80% of the new candidates and seasoned politicians running for office.  That’s my take. Plain and simple.  – Sheila Viesca | TalkShop CEO, Communication Coach
