Jeremias Carolino was born in the city of Paete Laguna, Philippines. The city of Paete is a quaint little town filled with many neighborly folk. Because of its small size, every person seems to know one another. This style of living is the atmosphere in which my grandfather grew up. A family member was, literally, living just around the corner.

The country of the Philippines is located due south of Japan. It is made up of thousands of islands with 3 main islands: Luzon, Mindanao, and Visayas. The main religion in the Philippines is Catholicism although there are all different kinds of beliefs celebrated in the country. Although it is considered a third world country, the people living there seem happy and are always willing to help one another.
