A popular saying by Dr. Jose Rizal goes “Ang Kabataan ay pag-asa ng bayan” and with that, here is how the Filipino people celebrate the International Youth Day of 2016!
Senator Grace Poe marked the International Youth Day with a Tweet calling for people to create an environment that will enable them to reach their potential.
(Also featured in her Tweet is a selfie with her young supporters, presumably taken during her 2016 Campaign Period)
Bedan Advocacy and Consciousness Enhancement Society marked IYD 2016 with a Tweet paying tribute to National Hero Dr. Jose Rizal who was known for being a staunch advocate for the Youth in the days where such advocacy was considered a rarity
The new chair of the National Youth Commission, singer Aiza Seguerra has not made any statement on the International Youth Day as of press time. She was appointed for the post just today.
From the Philippines, we wish you a Happy International Youth Day! Mabuhay ang Kabataan!
