Cory Quirino stands majestic. The epitome of beauty, grace, and intelligence, her magnetic presence commands immediate attention upon entering any room. However, the lovely energy that she generously brings into every humble encounter is not only a result of her physical exquisiteness which stands immune to the weathers of time.No, the truly captivating quality that makes this accomplished woman stand taller than the rest is her fiery, relentless, and effervescent passion for knowledge, and an honest and authentic drive to serve her fellow man with that very knowledge. A distinguished author, seasoned television host, civic leader, dedicated radio host, sought-after columnist, and firm advocate for beauty and wellness, the numerous endeavors that she has successfully undertaken is simply remarkable. Clearly, she carries the DNA of her illustrious first hero – her grandfather, former president Elpidio Quirino.
