Pandemic stories told in launched ebook


College of Management and Entrepreneurship academics contribute to the recently published ebook, Kwentong COVID/Kwentong Trabaho.

In May, the Institute for Occupational Health and Safety Development (IOHAD, Philippines) took to Facebook Live the narratives of people who work day in and day out during the coronavirus pandemic.

Dr. Cristina Pacubas, chair of CTU Main’s Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA), and Arnel Noval were some of the 48 writers who heeded the call for participation months earlier.

“My love for writing motivated me to participate; I want to share my story as a teacher during this pandemic,” said Dr. Pacubas.

Meanwhile, editor Teo Marasigan highlighted the need for it despite competitions on social media.

“Here, we have stories coming from ordinary Filipinos, including those who are not always on social media. These stories are not regularly provided to us by the algorithm of our social media accounts and by the powers-that-be. Here, we can focus and reflect on, and feel, narratives and analyses pertaining to a topic that’s very important to the majority of Filipinos,” Marasigan said.
