Biography of MELVIN BANGGOLLAY
I love poetry there is no doubt about it.
I was born in a poor family
but nurtured with humility,
Tendered and cared with simplicity
by parents whose hands showed me
the joy of life and all its glory
amidst great life pains along the way
of making me a man, I am today
as a lover of peace and harmony
as an advocate of nature's ecology
and a soul searching God's beauty.
I am presently residing at Tabuk, Kalinga, Philippines and presently working at the Department of Trade and Industry as a senior specialist.However, I was born at Saliok, Natonin, Mountain Province, Philippines to a poor family. I was able to finish my degree of Bachelor of Science in Commerce, major in Accounting and management at St. Mary's University, Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya, Philippines as an scholar of the National integration Study Grant Program (NISGP) sponsored by the Department of Education and National Student Loan Center, Philippines. I owed my success to my parents unending support, love and concern to my every undertaking. I also earned my Master of Public Adminstration (MPA) at Kalinga-Apayao State College.
I entered the government service since 1991 after earning my degree. I was once a clerk, college instructor, financial analyst and as a training and program specialist at the Department of Trade and Industry where I am now connected.
I may not have Sharepares's tongue
That can elicit the winds commands
But I have a heart and a sublime mind
That can go even far what is beyond
To bring the light of my magical wand
To inspire and give joy to anyone.

Once more in memory I vividly see
The golden moment with my daddy

While telling his life's great journey
