This Week's Speaker
Dayday's Story
Member profile: Margarita "Dayday" Hopkins
"How did I get here?"
‚Äč
Margarita's nickname is Dayday, which means "little one".  Her family last name is Leyson.  She was born into a prominent mestizo family (Spanish, Chinese, local mix) as the second of three girls in the city of Maasin, Philippines.  She grew up in a thatched nipa house cooking with a wood fire, taking cold showers, and using an outhouse.  
 
When her father past away when she was 15 years old, her mother and two sisters had to move to another city. Dayday stayed to finish high school and attend a Catholic college on a scholarship where she earned a bachelors degree in accounting.  She was a leader in ROTC.  Under martial law, student leaders were threatened as "communist".  Her mother urged her to move to Mindanao to live with her sister.   What a fateful move!
