The Activist Doctor
Part 3

Dr. Jade Pena talks about how her work with Doctors Without Borders has changed her political outlook. She also shares her concerns about her plan to return home.

“If you’ve been away too long from your country, you can never go back,” she says. “You go back, but it’s not the same country. You thought it would never change. But when you go back, things have changed… That’s the fear of many Filipinos.”

three words coe to mind as i was listening to this series - one a dawn -- oomph,panache,pizzazz.
i like the rapport between the woman doctor and the blogger, esp in part 3. i like how the changing moods of Dr. Jade in each series is matched by the photos. galing! CL

Thanks for the comment, CL. I didn't think about matching the photos with the mood in the interview, but you're right, I guess it did work out that way. Salamat. Ben
