Recently, Gina de Venecia hosted Women in Media’s Hollywood-inspired Christmas party at her new home in South Forbes Park, Makati City.

It was a riot because of the games we played and the infectious Gangnam music. Manay Gina has a lot to be thankful for: She began her banner year by receiving an award from PAPI, a publisher’s group.

Forum

She capped the year by representing our country in a world forum on ecological safety in Bali, Indonesia. Her other advocacies include naming the “malunggay” as a national vegetable, and building facilities for humanitarian endeavors.

Last Dec. 11, Gina spoke at the Second World Ecological Safety Assembly in Bali, about her projects to combat climate change.
