Hello! My name is Alpha Sanford. I am the creator of AMSDaily. I am a Filipina living in Massachusetts with my family. I love eating buro (Ilokano fermented fish) and drinking iced tea. I am a school leader by profession and I am proud of it!


AMSDaily was created in 2011 originally as a way to share the 30-day motivational conversations that I had with my siblings to the world.  Over the past few years, I was able to include stories and tips on personal development. Because I love reading about successful people, I decided to interview and share awesome stories of people that I have met or know. Some of the most inspiring stories I have shared include the following Filipino celebrities including TV show host Daphne Osena-Paez, multi-awarded humanitarian and entrepreneur Anna Meloto-Wilk, famous Manila blogger, the most adorable Tina Tagle, Filipino painter, Bren Bataclan, the youngest member of the Philippine Senate, Senator Bam Aquino, the only Filipino author whose book signing was held at a bookstore in 5th avenue in NY turned PR, Carissa Villacorta and much acclaimed Filipino model, Tricia Gosingtian.


This year, I have decided to concentrate on writing and sharing tips to living and leading a life that truly matters. I’ve combined my interests in  education, personal development, leadership, people and everything else that matters to me. So, twice a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays) I will be sharing my thoughts on what truly matters to me and how you could do the same. I hope these will help you live a better life – as I also humbly live mine in the most meaningful way.
