Tina the Turner

By
TINA grows the French kind called Sasso chicks.

She must be the second person I have met who is so proud of her color and race that her Facebook name is Tina Turner (instead of her real name) so she says “you won’t forget me” referring to the same name of a popular African-American singer of the ’80s who popularized the R&B song “What’s Love Gotta Do With It.” The other person who is also proud of her color and origins is Tes Mateo, a topnotch networker and catalyst who we always see at the Global Summit of Women. Tes uses her maiden name, she is proud to be a minority in Washington DC and is a proud dark-skinned Filipina.

THE AUTHOR at lunch with Father Franco in his farm

After a not-so-good experience of dealing with a copycat who copied his name, Father Franco had another name reserved for the products he made—PADRE NINNO. “After all, that is my name, too” he says. “My nickname is Ninno. Like a ‘baby’ in Italian,” says the Naples native who has been here in the Philippines for “350 years” he jokingly says.

Do you want to listen to the world’s leaders, men and women, in a fun gathering in Paris? That is a sample of what I look forward to every time the Global Summit time comes around. So far, I have attended the summits in Hanoi, Istanbul, Athens and last year in Kuala Lumpur.
