A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR
MAXIE VILLAVICENCIO PULLIAM, LCSW
Thank you for visiting the official FIERCE FILIPINA website! Since the book's release in February 2021, it has been thrilling to hear from readers across the globe about how my great-great-grandmother's story has served as a source of inspiration to them. I am also grateful to share that up to 500 copies of FIERCE FILIPINA have been donated to students and families in Gliceria's hometown of Taal, Batangas in the Philippines. I look forward to seeing how my great-great-grandmother's legacy continues to shape our world today. Thank you for your support, and please keep in touch!
