Early life and education

Herminia B. Roman was born on July 9, 1940 in Binan, Laguna to Dr. Marcelino Zarate Batista and Nicomedesa Vizconde Reyes. She is the third of four children and has three half siblings from her mother's first marriage. She took her elementary education at Binan Elementary School from 1946-1952. She finished her secondary education at St. Scholastica's College in 1956. She finished her college degree at St. Scholastica's College in 1960, and obtained her master's degree in Business Administration from New York University in 1964.


Rep. Roman’s legislative advocacy focus on health, education, livelihood, women's rights and environmental concerns, making sure that all government programs and initiatives should center on sustainability and affordability, consistent with the State’s mandate of promoting the general welfare of the Filipino people.

To advance her goals, she filed, co-authored and supported bills and resolutions which promote the rights and privileges of women, the elderly and the veterans across the country as well as environmental concerns. Locally, she pursued programs beneficial to her constituency, such as medical health assistance, scholarships, and livelihood projects.

She believes that genuine help is not giving a needy person fish, but teaching him how to fish (one of her priorities in her livelihood).

She founded the KABAKA (Kababaihan ng Bataan Tungo sa Kaunlaran) in December 1997, and Kinatawan Foundation Inc. in 1999. Both are women's organizations which emphasize self-reliance by the way of the "teach-the-man-how-to-fish" approach, giving her constituents the opportunity to rise above their present conditions.

Always curious about possible livelihood opportunities, she organized and sponsored various seminars on flower arrangement, hair science and beauty culture, fish and meat processing, soap making, scented candle making, paper recycling, and perfume making.

Her most recent project is the Moral Recovery Seminar, which aims to mobilize all Filipinos for nation building through the practical exercise of human values in our daily lives as citizens and to awaken us all to the power of these values in achieving our individual and national goals. It seeks the empowerment of all our people- the poor, the middle class and the rich through the sustained application of human values and a code of collective existence.

Her favorite quotations applies to the Moral Recovery Seminar: "Do not do unto others what you do not want others to do unto you." (Golden Rule) "Always do your best so that at the end of the day, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you tried everything even if you have failed." "Honesty is the best policy."
