“There is truly no other place like Pinoys on Parliament in Canada.”

“POP is the first and largest conference of its kind, bringing together almost 200 Filipino-Canadian youth all the way from Northern Canada to the East Coast every year. It has given me and many others the opportunity to connect and define what being Filipino-Canadian is on our own terms. My tenure as Media Relations Officer allowed me to highlight the work of many exceptional members and budding leaders in our community. It made me realize just how much talent is waiting to be fostered in the hearts of our youth. Pinoys on Parliament provides just the right tools for that. This organization gives us a glimpse of what Filipino-Canadian youth could achieve in the future – representation, equality, and excellence – not in spite of, but because of our dual identities.”
