Issa Colmenares is a Mind You fundraising ambassador and a proud Filipina immigrant based in Sydney, Australia. In an effort to recover from the mental health issues she has struggled with during the pandemic, she has decided to participate in a charity boxing fight where she trained and fought to raise over 5,500 AUD (PHP215,000) to help fund therapy sessions both in Australia and the Philippines. She continues to advocate for the destigmatization of mental health issues to this day. Outside of this, she works full time as an IT sales professional and developed her sales career from the Philippines after being part of the pioneering team of GCash and now at Amazon’s cloud business, AWS, in Sydney. While her long term goals are still being written, her goals in the next few months include recovering from Covid-19 by spending a couple of months in true Eat-Pray-Love fashion, backpacking around Southeast Asia, relocating to a new city, and starting afresh!
