She is popularly known as Apple Manzanas.
But her real name is Christine Dianne Macuro. So sometimes, her friends call her Mac. She got her Japanese name from her grandfather who was a half-Japanese. Apple was born on April 20,1991 in Iloilo City. She is the eldest of two siblings. Her father is an OFW who works in Saudi Arabia, while her mother is a housewife.
Apple graduated from Central Philippines University with a degree of Bachelor of Science in Library and Information Science.
This was not her first choice as she wanted to take up Bachelor of Science in Hotel and Restaurant Management. She wanted to work abroad. But because her mother convinced her to take up library science degree, she had to take it. She did not realize that as a librarian, she also has a lot of opportunities to work abroad like any other professionals.
Like many other librarians, Apple eventually developed to love the profession.
After graduation, she prepared well for the board exam. Her aim was to land on the Top Ten.
She did not land on the Top Ten. But she passed it.
Now, Apple works as a librarian in Hua Siong, a Chinese school in Iloilo City. Prior to this, she was with AMA Library in Iloilo City and at St. Therese-MTC Colleges La Fiesta Site, Molo, Iloilo City.
When I asked her if she has regretted having taken library science, she said NO. "I enjoy my work."
And the rest of her co-employees when she is around because she has a Mt. Everest-size storage area of interesting topics to share.
And she can deliver her stories in a funny way. That's the reason why I call her, the stress reliever.
Meanwhile, her stress reliever is her handsome son, Zachary Aziel James.
