Loren: The Lady
Who Leads

Loren Legarda’s life mantra has been for the Filipino people, the country, and the planet.

For her fourth term in the Senate, she was trusted by Filipinos with a strong 24.26 million votes in the election; she offered her heart and intellect again, serving in the 19th Congress with magnified commitment and grit. Loren is the only female who topped the Senate race twice and the only woman to become Senate majority leader. She is the current Senate President Pro-Tempore and the Senate’s most senior member.

Because of her advocacies on climate change adaptation, disaster risk reduction and management, sustainability, and climate justice, the Philippines has been recognized for her pioneered laws on the environment.

Loren is also a women’s & children’s rights advocate, consistent with her efforts to promote the welfare of women and the protection of the Filipino youth.

She is a true Filipina at heart, passionately advocating for the protection of the rights of indigenous peoples and promoting arts and culture in the local and international arena.

No substitute for preparedness

Loren Legarda, who probably “lost (her) voice singing the same tune” about environmental disasters for over a decade now, said every barangay should have officials going around to inform their constituents about the effects of the oncoming typhoon and the corresponding measures every family should undertake. “Are we expecting a storm surge? Then we should warn our communities of the expected height of the waves and how far inland the flooding would reach,” she said, adding that this would ensure that people are evacuated in safe places. As a result, local executives did not have to force their constituents to leave their homes, with thousands voluntarily evacuating to designated evacuation centers.

Pinoys now climate change-aware

Legarda’s advocacies on climate change and disaster risk reduction started as far back as 1998 when she first became senator. These concepts are not exactly very popular issues to most people. The high-sounding jargon did not register well with many voters when she twice ran but lost in the vice presidential elections in 2004 and in 2010. Nonetheless, it did not stop Legarda from her staunch advocacy on climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction measures. She has found satisfaction in the growing awareness of the challenges of climate change among many Filipinos now.

Loren: A Leader’s Journey

Coming from a family of newsmen, educators, and physicians, one can almost say that this lady really was born for greatness. Being the granddaughter of one of the Philippines’ journalism pillars, it was only natural that she took on this career path. With her hard work, Loren graduated cum laude with a degree in Broadcast Communication from the University of the Philippines Diliman, paving the way for her being the youngest anchor to appear in Philippine news television. Years later, her alma mater would confer her with a Doctor of Laws honoris causa.

Wherever she went, or whatever endeavor she delved into, she would always come out on top – may it be her passion for broadcasting, crusade for the environment, or being a Philippine senator, she would always achieve her goals and accomplish her mission, all thanks to her leadership skills, passion and vision.
