Liwayway Conference: New dawn for young leaders

May 22, 2009

ANAK hosted its 3rd annual Philippine Heritage Liwayway Conference to 60 registered high school students at the University of Winnipeg. Under the theme "Pamunuan" (Leadership), Filipino-Canadian young professionals shared the relevance of their identity and heritage in their chosen career paths.

"Do it because you want to not because you have to," advised keynote speaker and TecVoc teacher, Emil Contreras who underlined the importance of everyday goals. Students were divided into workshops with SWIGFU, Ivy Lopez-Sarmiento, Dr. Gilbert Miranda, and Dr. Raphael Nepomuceno. Following, a gala celebration capped off the annual event.

ANAK would like to thank all the speakers, volunteers, and sponsors for their continued support. Maraming salamat po sa inyong lahat!
