Singer and actress Vina Morales is M (Life & Living in Mindanao) Magazine’s cover girl in its latest issue. Morales (Sharon Magdayao in real life), whose American grandfather Orval Hughes developed abaca plantations in Malalag, Davao del Sur, reveals her life behind the glare of the spotlight as she reinvents herself anew as doting mother to Ceana.

In the magazine’s current issue, Morales is joined by fellow Mindanawons, news anchor Martin Andanar, world-renowned pianist Rudolf Golez, restauranteur Henrick Yu, wedding cuisine expert Beverly Sanz, and artists Kublai Ponce Milan and Dadai Joaquin, who, through their admirable accomplishments, have given their homeland a positive image and outlook. Completing the circle is a motley crew of up-and-coming Mindanawons who are making a name in their own respective fields in this issue’s Special Feature.
