RELOAD YOUR DREAMS - Rebecca Bustamante Inspires Toronto



By Michelle Chermaine Ramos
Toronto-Canada
August 24, 2016

 
 


On Friday, August 19 2016 iKUBO Media in cooperation with Chalre Associates hosted Reload Your Dreams at the YWCA at 87 Elm Street in downtown Toronto.

The Filipino community had the opportunity to get up close and personal with Rebecca Bustamante, the Founder and CEO of Chalre Associates and President and Co-Founder of the Asia CEO Awards and Asia CEO Forum.

The seventh of eleven siblings, she started life in extreme poverty and was forced to work hard for a living as a young child, working as a street vendor and maid to help her family make ends meet. After the tragedy of her mother’s death when she was only 18 years old, she supported her family by working in Singapore and later, Canada, as a domestic helper to pay their mortgage and for her younger siblings’ education.

Now the CEO of her own multinational company, Chalre Associates, she shares her inspirational life story as a motivational speaker to inspire others to reach their goals and live the life they dream of.
