|Danica May Camacho - 7th billion person|
7 billion is a big number, it would take almost 7 billion seconds (or 200 years) to count to 7 billion out loud. 7 billion steps would take you around the Globe less than 77 times ( multiply by 2). 7 people are born in less than 2 seconds and 7 dies in less than 4 seconds.
Near age 70 is the average life span of a person in 2010 and less than 700 months during the year 1960. We tend to live longer today than 7 decades ago because of medical and technology breakthrough. The trend of population is increasing very fast and we will be 8 billion in 2025 and 9 billion in 2045.
Little Danica is an instant celebrity, she was greeted with a cake and local benefactors granted her scholarships and livelihood package to help her parents. She was from a low income family and like somebody else, she will face and battle poverty same with millions of Filipinos. But with our good government and economy growing, she will have a good future ahead.
