EDEN PAGDANGANAN SORIANO -TRINIDAD
EDEN PAGDANGANAN SORIANO -TRINIDAD was born in San Agustin Iba,Zambales, Luzon Island Philippines.
Her passion for reading and collecting books started since she was 4 years old, and her mother is the first one to notice her love for reading. Normal little girls would play dolls with her playmates but she instead spent her time reading and listening to her first musical Nursery book of rhymes. She also love reading poems and at early age she had been reciting, delivering poems in her school programs also in church programs and during family events.
As the first grandchild, her grandmother Rebecca Sarmiento Pagdanganan, gave her a bible when she was 8 years old making her so drawn into it she started to try writing short story and poems. Her first story was submitted to her Grade 5 teacher, but never again returned to her the copy of fit.
Eden writes from her heart like her first favorite poet and author Helen Steiner Rice whose book of Poems of Faith and Poems of Love have inspired her to write too. She kept scribbling thoughts, ideas, in any paper within her reached when thoughts strike her even on table napkins, paper bags and on her gadgets. Writing poems is just to unload what is in her heart and mind. Without really revealing what she really meant sometimes.
She became so much inspired to write more upon meeting the father of Pentasi B and father of Visual Poetry Doc Penpen Bugtong Takipsilim that even in her too busy schedule as School Director she still gives time to write poems to inspire too the young generation. She continue writing poems to help promote among people of all nations peace, love, unity, building bridges of friendship, for global healing, harmony and understanding to inspire humanity through poetry. This is the heart, the Vision and Mission of Worldwide Poetry group Pentasi B which she is a member.
She is one of the main author of the book “PLETHORA OF POETRY, a book of Poetry by the Zambaleno Poets.
Recently, she felt awed with the beautiful books and poems of Mr. Agron Shele she saw posted in his FB and website ATUNISPOETRY.com especially the “White Stones
Poems”. She now wishes to write more and be published her works in International Anthologies like atunispoetry.com though she felt her works are very amateur.
She writes and composes poems in English and Filipino languages, and Sambal dialect.
