1. The epitome of “Bayan Muna Bago Sarili”

A year after revealing that she had stage 4 lung cancer in 2014, Santiago confidently announced she had already beaten cancer and had plans of running for the nation’s highest office. Seeking the presidency is something a cancer survivor wouldn’t normally do as the job entails a lot of stress as well as physical and mental work. With her decision to join the 2016 presidential race, Santiago has certainly proven that she puts the country ahead of herself.

2. Worked in the three branches of the government


In all the three branches of the government—judicial, legislative, and executive, Santiago has displayed nothing but unquestionable professional excellence. She served as the presiding judge of Regional Trial Court at Quezon City in the judicial branch. Meanwhile, she worked as an immigration commissioner as well as Agrarian reform secretary in the executive branch. In the legislative branch, Santiago has served three terms in the senate.
