MANILA, Philippines — Vice President Leni Robredo assured her supporters that her presidential bid is centered on fixing the ills of society, stressing that it is no different to her political awakening which drove her to serve the country.

“May mali sa sistema.  May magagawa ako para itama ito,” she said before an estimated crowd of over 800,00 during her miting de avance in Makati City Saturday.

“Marami po sa inyo kagaya ko rin no’ng nagsimula: kabataan na tahimik, mahiyain, pinapanood muna ang nangyayari sa paligid.  Nagbabad tayo sa mga komunidad, nakinig tayo sa mga pinagdadaanan ng ating kapwa, dahan-dahan ang pagdating ng pagkamulat,” Robredo said before an estimated crowd of over 800,000.

Her political awakening, Robredo said, has been a north star for her in all of her endeavors, including her stint as the Vice President of the country.

“Kahit po noong tumakbo ako, nanalo, at nanungkulan bilang pangalawang pangulo, tuloy ang pagbabalik ko sa mga katotohanang ito, sa bawat sandaling kailangang magnilay,” she noted.

“Pinatunayan niyo ngayon, parating may magagawa ang Pilipino.  Iba iba man ang konteksto, dito at ngayon nagtatagpo ang ating iba’t ibang mga kwento.  Sa katotohanan, ang kapangyarihan ay hindi kailanman maaagaw mula sa kamay ng taumbayan,” she said.

“At sakali mang may magtangkang agawin ito, pumapalag tayo.  May lakas na gumigising sa atin ang nagtututok ng sarili sa dakilang layunin,” she added.

She admitted too that when she announced her candidacy last October 7, it was only faith that she held on to.

“Eskaktong pitong buwan na ang nakalipas.  October 7.  Inihain ko ang aking sarili bilang kandidato sa pagka-pangulo.  Aaminin ko: tanging pananalig ang pinanghawakan ko,” she recalled.

“Pero kahit kailan hindi ako nagduda, hindi ako kailanman nawalan ng pag-asa.  Dahil alam kong mahal ng Pilipino ang kapwa niya Pilipino,” she added.
