Youth Champion

12 August 2016

Some 1,000 members of the youth sector today gave a rousing welcome to Senator Ferdinand "Bongbong" R. Marcos when he graced the Sangguniang Kabataan Festival of the National Youth Commission at the Skydome of SM North Edsa in Quezon City. Senator Marcos, who came with his eldest son Sandro, received a commendation from the NYC for authoring two key legislations that empower the youth - RA 8044 or the Youth in Nation-Building Act which created the NYC and the Sangguniang Kabataan Reform Act of 2016. During his speech, Senator Marcos said he has always been an advocate of youth rights because he believes that the future of the nation rests on its youth. "Ako'y natutuwa kapag nakikita ko ang mukha ng mga kabataan dahil dito ko nakikita na mas magiging maganda ang kinabukasan ng ating bansa," he told the crowd.
