Elizabeth Padillo Olesen Poems

I come originally from the Philippines and have settled in Denmark with my Danish husband.
I teach in a Danish school, teaching subjects like art, music, historý, religious studies and English. I write poetry and illustrate them with some drawings or paintings.

I write poems when my heart is touched by some events and situations which call for common efforts for help and solidarity. I wish my poems to be a window to my Christian faith.
