A flight attendant whose job was affected by the coronavirus disease or COVID-19 crisis slammed those who belittle online sellers.
KAMI learned that the flight attendant defended those who turned to online business as means of earning amid the crisis.
In a Facebook post, Cebu City flight attendant Sophia Tolentino shared her experience of becoming a food delivery woman and online seller now.
“Someone asked me today ‘FA ka diba? Buti nagdedeliver ka na lang ng pagkain ngayon?’” she wrote
“I smiled back and said, FA man o hindi, wala naman sigurong masama sa pagdedeliver ng pagkain?” she added.
Sophia also encouraged others to stop pulling down other people. Instead, Filipinos should support each other for coping and dealing with the effects of the pandemic.
“Let's stop pulling people down. Instead, help each other succeed. We all have our own ways of coping and dealing with the effect of this pandemic, support people who are going out of their comfort zones and trying their best to be better,” she said.
She also has a message to her “co-tinderas” who are hustling now to help their families and loved ones.
“To my co-tindera's out there, don't be ashamed of your kind of ‘HUSTLE’ we are all making this for our family and loved ones. Have some faith and keep going!” she wrote.
“Again, DISKARTE hindi ARTE,” she added.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis in the country, many Filipinos got laid off from their work. To cope with the pandemic and earn money, many also turned into online business and other means.
KAMI previously reported that a flight attendant for the Philippine Airlines is now roaming around to sell “pares” while waiting for the resume of commercial flights.
Aside from them, former GMA news reporter and licensed pilot Steve Dailisan also started an online business while waiting for his flights amid the crisis.
