Filipinos were indeed one of the most admired people in the world, not just because of their amazing and incredible talents, their good heart and hospitality but most of all because of their hard work and dedication at work.

Recently, this police officer in the Middle East went viral on social media for being the very first Filipino police officer in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Police officer John Ray Cerna is a 100% Filipino. He was actually born in Zamboanga City, Philippines on March 30, 1972.

Like any other Filipino workers abroad, he started as a salesperson of a European furniture company and then he became a travel manager. He was also fluent in writing, reading, and speaking in Arabic that made him a good police officer in the UAE. He always wanted to be a police officer since he was young. Who would have taught that he would be a police officer in one of the strict countries in the Middle East! Congratulations sir! You are indeed a Filipino pride.
