As she was to receive her awards on the stage of the Lapu-Lapu City Auditorium, Lorefil looked for a family member and her father did not disappoint her. Eduardo, who works as a security guard took a quick break from his post and rushed to join Lori on stage.

The security personnel gained cheers from the crowd as he raised his right hand to greet the audience.

For 24 years, Lorefil revealed, her father has been devoted to his work as a security guard. While earning a living, Eduardo also shows love and commitment to his wife Lorefil Presbitero-Amancio, and his five daughters, the youngest of whom is named Lori in honor of her mother.

The Amancio family moved to Cebu more than a year ago when her parents lost their jobs in Manila. They now live in Sitio Kagudoy, Brgy. Basak, Lapu-Lapu City, where Eduardo found work as a security guard at the Lapu-Lapu City Auditorium.

The Grade 11 student described her father as a man of few words, preferring to express his emotions through actions. “Akong papa kay mura gani di sya ka express through words na ni support sya nako. Through actions jud na siya,” she said.
