Imelda Marcos: The First and Greatest Filipina Sneaker Freak.
Filipinos are the GREATEST OF ALL TIME. They excel at everything they do. I hate to generalize, but after growing up in a Catholic high school with 20% Filipinos, and going through the last year of Filipino priding with Manny Pacquiao, I learned from all my friends that Filipinos are better than you and me and your Chinese mom. They excel at everything, and these are the greatest Filipinos in their respective fields:
