Hawaii Filipino Chronicle’s 25th Anniversary Essay Contest A Success Part 2

By Mark Lester RANCHEZ

For our runner-up winner, Armi Gail Beltran Camilon of Waipahu, the Filipino Chronicle has been her go-to for news scoops in the Filipino-American community. Not only is the newspaper “a great source for keeping abreast with news,” she writes, it also informs her of local events on the island and also of services offered by small businesses. She is a small business owner herself. She won $25 for the consolation prize.

Operating from home, Camilon’s business offers photography and graphic design services. Her business, Photo King, which has been running for 8 ˝ years, provides custom graphic design projects, photo restoration, memorial photos, photo digitization, and small and large formal printing. She is also a registered nurse working for various medical institutions on Oahu and a case manager for a home health company.

She is actively involved in non-profit organizations. Just last month, she was a part of an outreach program that helped feed the homeless population on the island.

For her future, she hopes to watch her children grow and discover their own passions and life goals. She also hopes to create and experience a healthy, meaningful, happy life together with the people she cares about and loves.
