Rahman will take with her the advocacy to push for Postpartum Depression (PPD) awareness as a mother who has experienced the mood disorder herself. The Talisayan, Misamis Oriental native is the founder of the non-profit “You Are Loved Foundation for Postpartum Depression” which she started as a means to empower women who are suffering from PPD and promote more understanding of the disease common among new mothers.
