Of course, she could have continued with her job as midwife in the Philippines yet Iriesh chose to try her luck in Taiwan as a household worker – an honorable, honest job.
She pointed out to her bashers that, yes, she is “just” a domestic worker yet she has long been independent from her parents and could buy anything she wants.
Even though she works a menial job, well outside her previous career, she feels proud of what she has achieved and learned while she is working in Taiwan. She’s been a household worker for 10 years under the same employers, Iriesh revealed. She said she learned a lot from her long stay in Taiwan, even if she’s only working as a domestic helper.
Truly, being a household worker might be a blue collar job yet Iriesh knows she did not step on anyone to attain her current status, she did not steal, and her job might not pay her as much as she would have received if she was working as midwife in Taiwan yet it gives her financial freedom that allowed her to be independent from her parents. At the end of the day, that’s all that matters, really!
