Language of Smiles: The United Diversity of Our Team

They say that there is no language barrier when one is smiling. And that is the gist of the story I am about to tell you.


Our team, perhaps, is the most diverse in the whole of Cooee. Diverse in the sense that we come from different areas around the Philippines. Ours is the true epitome of the theme song 'Mula Aparri hanggang Jolo.' I’m from the north; two of our teammates are from the outskirts of Manila, and one is from Mindanao. You might think that we would not often see eye to eye; however, our team is the opposite of that. In our 2 years of working together, we have always meshed well like jam and butter. We have only met once in person – yet despite that, we are able to read each other’s minds well. Of course, it helps that we all have the same wavelength when it comes to opinions and jokes, and of course, we cannot discredit the ethics and dedication that we bring to the table at work every day. Our team values every member. We listen to what one has to say, and we empathize with how each of us feels. There is trust and respect as shown through the work we put in and the output that we have to show at the end of the day. There is leadership and initiative as portrayed by each one when I am on leave or when one of us is down. But most of all, there is love, unity, and friendship.


Ours is an odd pairing of sorts – a Ybanag, a Tagalog, a Kapampangan, and a Bisaya. Truth be told, we always communicate in English, so there is no language barrier of sorts among us. But I believe what sets us apart and what keeps us motivated and strong as a team, aside from the fact that we love what we do, is the connection that we have with each other. Call it serendipity, call it whatever you want, but our team is solid. And there are no barriers between any of us – just laughter and that one constant thing we tell each other daily: 'Good job, guys!
