Gloria Macapagal Arroyo is a Filipino politician who went on to become the first female Vice President of Philippines and also served two terms as the president of the country. Daughter of former President Diosdado Macapagal, politics was not something that Gloria had in her mind early on in her life. She studied economics and obtained a Ph.D. in the subject, before going on to work as a professor at some of the leading educational institutions in Philippines. In 1987, she joined the government of Corazon Acquino as Undersecretary in the Department of Trade and Industry. She was senator for six years from 1992 to 1998 before she was elected as the Vice President under the presidency of Joseph Estrada. She served as President of Philippines from 2001 to 2010. Her presidency was fraught with troubles as she had to fight impeachment charges, quell internal disturbances and terrorist threats. Following the end of her second tenure as the president she found herself in considerable trouble as she was charged with electoral malpractice and corruption that saw her being sent to jail.
