Founder

IAMSAM was not just founded by one person. After all, it takes two to tango, especially when it comes to working in a company. With that said, IAMSAM wouldn’t be where it is today without a certain Rayla Melchor Santos.

With an extensive resume under her belt, Rayla is sure to be the best bet for everyone who wants to develop themselves into the best person they can be. Not only that, she has done wonders in the corporate world as well, ranging from being the CEO of Pro-Active Resources Inc, to being the founder/president of McKinley Hill International School.

MOMCIE, THANK YOU FOR "I AM SPECIAL, UNIQUE AND PRECIOUS"!

Momcie, as she is fondly called, practiced what she believed was best for a child and this is immortalized in a Museo Pambata book entitled Letters from Lolo and Lola (1998). in a letter she wrote to her youngest grandchild, Buffy, Momcie expresses how special, unique and precious he is. Thus, IAMSAM dates the origin of its mantra “I Am Special, Unique and Precious” to this letter.

It is the goal of the foundation to reach as many with this empowerment: "I AM Special, Unique and Precious!", as a natural entitlement simply because s/he is born into this world!
