Carmela Labitoria-Co

I have taught Literature, Humanities and Art Appreciation courses at the University of Santo Tomas, De La Salle University-College of Saint Benilde and Far Eastern University-East Asia College in the Philippines and at Gulf International Institute in the Kingdom of Bahrain. At present, I handle Filipino Heritage Program classes at Wellington School in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

I write poetry and haiku — the subjects of which are death and strength.
