At 11:00 am, the Vice President had an interview with Millenials PH (MPH) at the Quezon City Reception House (QCRH) to discuss national issues currently affecting the youth. MPH launched Millenials Café, an online show, as an avenue where the youth can tackle important issues that matter to them with key personalities in the country. MPH is a socio-political youth movement dedicated to developing future Filipino leaders who want their voices to be heard concerning different social and political issues that affect them and the society in general.
When asked about how a competent leader should be, the Vice President replied, “Ang leader kailangan maging inspiring. Kailangan nirerespeto siya. Kung nabi-bring out mo ang the best in every Filipino, iyon ang magandang leader—‘yung unifying ka. Para respetuhin ka kailangan maramdaman ng pinakamalayo at pinakamaliliit na constituent na nirerespeto mo sila kasi ‘pag wala iyon, parang ang hirap. Tingin ko kaya lang natin mag move forward ‘pag proud tayo na maging Pilipino at ‘pag inaako natin ang responsibility na kabahagi ako ng progress ng bansa. Kapag inisip mo na gobyerno lang ‘yung may responsibility na ganon, wala na, talagang ganito lang tayo pero kung every citizen would feel na “bahagi ako”, ma-aachieve mo iyon pag inclusive ka and pag na-inspire mo ang pagiging Pilipino nila.”
At 4:00 pm, the Vice President was called on by Operation Smile, Inc. (OSI) at QCRH. OSI is an international NGO that provides free surgery to children with cleft palate in marginalized communities. They are currently present in 43 countries including the Philippines.
