JUANA CHANGE:
She’s Everyone with lots of humor

MANILA, Philippines—She is a God-fearing government fixer, a fortune-telling Sto. Niño, and a domestic helper on a plane sitting beside another OFW who looks suspiciously like Jose Rizal.

She is you and me and everyone in between. She is Juana Change. And just like the Filipino she represents, she wants genuine change.

She communicates her serious message by making people laugh and reflect: What the hell has gone wrong in this country?

Juana Change, played by 46-year-old theater actress and video producer Mae Paner, is a character who rose to cyber stardom through her political satires uploaded on the free video sharing site, YouTube.

“Our goal is to encourage people to act, to get involved and to stand up for our country. We want people to realize that we all have a responsibility,” Paner says.

According to its website (http://juanachange.org), a group of creative artists, advocates, activists and communicators who call themselves The Convergence Team, developed Juana Change and filmed short “virals” of vignettes that depict what we have become as Filipinos.

The group now goes by the name Artists Revolution and includes members such as TV commercial director Sockie Fernandez, independent film producer Raymund Lee and musician Jim Paredes.
