Yay! I’m so proud! COA Commissioner Heidi Mendoza has been distinguished as one of the 7 Filipinos (Pitong Pinoy) by Yahoo! Philippines. Anyhoo, here’s our entry nominating Ma’am Heidi through the Facebook Support Group Page, “We Support You, Heidi Mendoza!”

The article written about her on the announcement of the awardees is quite different though. But it doesn’t matter. All that matters is she’s a part of it, regardless if she actually needs such distinction or not. Still, Thanks, Yahoo!

She made headlines and risked her life to expose supposed corruption in the military, allegedly led by ex-Armed Forces of the Philippines comptroller Carlos Garcia.

Mendoza braved Senate hearings and bared details of suspicious military transactions, strengthening the multimillion plunder case against the former general.

In all likelihood, she could’ve chosen a simple, quiet life but she decided to take the road less traveled for the sake of the country.
She has recently been appointed by President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino as commissioner of the Commission on Audit and we have high hopes that this would pave the way to clean and honest
