Contrary to the common distress stories of OFWs working in the Middle East, Anthonette Ortega Monteclar, an OFW working in Dubai, shared a positively inspiring story of having kind employers who treats her like a family member, especially on her special day.
Anthonette is a proud nanny who started working in Dubai in 2015. Her journey as a migrant worker started with a typical sob story – employed by an Arab family who made her life miserable. According to Anthonette’s friend who shared her story online, Anthonette had stayed with her Arab employers for two years.
Prior to leaving her Arab employers, Anthonette met Jacky, the woman whom she treated as a sister from another womb and the person who would eventually change her life.
Five years after leaving her Arab employers, Anthonette is celebrating her birthday with her new employers. They were British employers who showed appreciation for Anthonette’s impeccable work as the family’s nanny by throwing a grand 40th birthday party for the OFW.
The party had taken place in a hotel, and the birthday celebrant along with her guests had been served properly, complete with cocktail drinks. To top it all off, her employers had arranged for a limousine service for Anthonette’s 40th birthday celebration.
