     Maria Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo was born on April 5, 1947 which means that presently she is 64 years old. She is a Filipino politician who served as the 14th President of the Philippines from 2001 to 2010. Arroyo's father, Diosdado P. Macapagal, was president of the Philippines from 1961 to 1965. Arroyo studied economics at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., where she began a lasting friendship with classmate and future U.S. president Bill Clinton. Arroyo was a university professor when Pres. Corazon Aquino appointed her undersecretary of trade and industry in 1986. She won a seat in the Senate in 1992 and was reelected in 1995 by a record 16 million votes. She was elected vice president in 1998, garnering more votes than the winner of the presidency, Joseph Estrada, who named Arroyo secretary of social welfare and development. In 2000, however, a corruption scandal enveloped Estrada, and on October 12 Arroyo resigned from the cabinet post to rally opposition against him. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo assumed the presidency on January 20, 2001, following the 2nd EDSA revolution that ousted democratically-elected President Joseph Estrada. As President of the Philippines, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has faced the problem of guerrilla activity by separatist Islamic fundamentalists in the south of the country. According to surveys done between 2004 and 2006, Ms Arroyo may be the most unpopular President in the history of the Philippines.
