HONG KONG (2018) – Jovelyn Cabulong Vaporoso, 25, said she dropped out of college in the Philippines during her final year in order to support her parents and six sisters. She came to Hong Kong in March 2017 to start working as a domestic worker.


Most of Vaporoso's friends in Hong Kong are wives and mothers working in the city to support their families, while Vaporoso said she is also working for the future of herself. “Women in the Philippines are stronger than men,” she said.


She likes traveling and hiking. On Sundays, she usually goes to church and visits a park.
