The campaign season brought out some of the worst mudslinging that we have ever seen in social media. Hurtful memes, fake news, troll accounts—you name it. It even got to a point where you just want to deactivate your account.
The fighting carried over even after the day of the elections. The news feed was riddled with allegations of cheating, most coming from the camps of vice presidential bets Senator Bongbong Marcos and Congresswoman Leni Robredo, who are currently in a neck-and-neck race.
But in the middle of all the confrontation, we saw two bright spots that stood out among the rest: Georgina Hernandez, the spokesperson for Robredo...
...and Atty. Francesca Huang, a member of Marcos' legal team, who also answers to the media.
Their captivating charm made us all temporarily forget about everything—the dizzying math, processed meat analogy, mind-conditioning, etc—about the ongoing war online. Even netizens share our sentiments.
Now as we always do, we went on a little research exploration to get to know these opposing reps better. Both of them graduated from the top local universities, with Francesca getting her Juris Doctor degree from the University of the Philippines College of Law. She is currently affiliated with the Baniqued & Baniqued Attorneys at Law.
Georgina, on the other hand, studied at the Ateneo de Manila University and is working for the Department of Social Welfare and Development.
They are accomplished professionals who love to travel. Oh, we almost forgot: both of them are happily married. Sorry, guys!
But right now, business is all that matters to them, especially when the counting of the votes is already coming to a close.
Can't choose between the two? Well, whoever wins between Robredo or Marcos, there's a possibility one of them will soon have a position at the Office of Vice President. Hopefully it will be similar to their current role, because we definitely don't mind seeing them a lot more.
