Mary Jane Veloso was facing a firing squad in Indonesia despite last-ditch appeals by President Aquino, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, human rights advocates, and even Manny Pacquiao, for Jakarta to spare her life.

She went overseas on the promise of a job and better life but ended up on death row after kilos of cocaine were found in her luggage.

Along with 8 others, Veloso was set for execution Wednesday morning but was given an 11th-hour reprieve.

This is her story.
