I have got a story to share with you about an OFS. Meet Mariah Sison, a 40-year-old mother of four from Kawit, Cavite, Philippines. Her life was once defined by hardship, but her determination and ability to work from home, turned her life around.
Growing up in a town without running water, Mariah’s daily routine involved waking up at 4 am to fetch water from a nearby river just for a bath. Despite the challenges, she remained positive.
Her mother saw potential in her communication skills and encouraged her to pursue mass communications in college. During her junior year, she had on-the-job training at a local radio station, where she faced disturbing experiences while covering police assignments.
Life took an unexpected turn when she moved to Metro Manila with her boyfriend. While she was working as a call center agent, they struggled financially, especially after Mariah gave birth to twins. Daily commutes of 2-3 hours each way, graveyard shifts, and barely seeing her husband weighed heavily on her, impacting her mental and physical health.
However, a ray of hope emerged in 2013 when she learned about OnlineJobs.ph, offering remote work opportunities. Mariah took the leap even with limited resources, getting the cheapest available DSL internet and a basic PC. She found her first online job and felt a sense of relief as she could now support her family while working from home.
Since then, Mariah’s life has taken a turn for the better. She’s been with her current employer for nine years, working as a credit analyst for a credit repair company based in Utah. The flexibility of remote work allowed her to be a hands-on mother, attending school meetings and organizing events for her kids.
Her story is a testament to the power of perseverance and the opportunities that remote work can bring. From facing hardships and financial struggles, Mariah transformed her life, providing her family a comfortable and blessed life.
