MESSAGE OF COMMITMENT
To be nobody but yourself – in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else – means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.” Reading this passage by E.E. Cummings made me realized I have been fighting the same battle in my entire life. I am always doubtful of what career or path to take for my future, I often accept jobs based on a compromise between my dreams and what others thought my dreams should be.
Looking back, I always knew that I wanted to work in public service. Ever since my childhood, I have found in myself a certain compassion and innate desire to help others. I am very lucky that my family is very supportive of every decision I make. And that pushes and makes me confident that public service is, without a doubt, the right track for me.
Now that God gave me this opportunity to serve, I promise the people of my beloved city that I will do my best to make a difference in the name of public service.
This humble representation envisions an equal opportunity among the youth of the city. With that, I commit to continue making sustainable programs and activities that are beneficial to the four sectors of the youth – in-school youth, out-of-school youth, working youth, and youth with special needs – to craft policies to protect their rights, to develop their skills through sports, training, seminars, and workshops, to promote environmental progress, and to be the voice of the sector I embody.
With undying service and transparent governance, the vision to be the Safest Space for Youth in the Region by 2022 will come into reality.
