Meet the New Batch of WYAAP Interns for September to December 2011

GET TO KNOW THE PEOPLE WHO HELP RUN OUR REGION!

ANGELINE CALURASAN

Hello Friends! I’m Angeline Calurasan from Philippines and currently taking up Bachelor of Science in Tourism at University of the Philippines. My interest covers interaction with new culture, place and people and that’s the reason why I joined World Youth Alliance as an Intern. Another reason why I joined is because the organization promotes Human Dignity and Integral Human Development through Cultural Projects and Activities, which I’m interested working on for the next years. I am also interested with the activities that will help me generate new ideas. My personal goal is to engage myself with different interactions that will impart learning and will prepare me to social obligations. I dream of being an active Advocate of Change and to share my knowledge to the Youth as I take responsibility in making this Society a better place to live in.


CARMINDA LICERIO

I am Carminda Licerio, graduate of Business Information Management from the Asian Institute of Computer Studies in Bulacan. I chose to become a WYA intern because it is more relevant in my previous advocacy campaign. Though I am focused on persons with disabilities, I think WYA is one organization that can promote human rights as they are more focused on Human Dignity. I want to learn more on how to protect the dignity of a person and to be more active in their activities and programs regarding their advocacy. My dream is to be one of the best advocator of persons with disabilities and human dignities. I love to make friends and meet other people with different characteristics.


JAMAICA MARIE ONA

I am a 4th year BS Tourism student of the University of the Philippines Diliman. I choose to be a WYAAP intern because I am part of the youth. To be trained to know and deeply understand my fellow youth, our needs and capabilities, and to be endowed with the righteous principles about humanity is essential to my well being. My goal is to learn, above all, the guiding principles WYA works in accordance with because I want to be an active and a responsible Filipino with a good moral state. For the world I dream of people living responsibly for each other amidst diversity and trials.


MANDY ALQUEZA

Being an Accounting-dropped out, an irregular student, scholastic delinquent, disqualified in having honors in high school and college, assertive and introvert person; I still believe when we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny. There are many struggles in life that are willing to grab me by the neck but one thing’s for sure: I WILL NEVER GIVE UP. – Many Alqueza, 20, PUP Manila, Activist but not Rallyist, Anti- Racist and Proud to be a FILIPINO.


LOVELY NAZARENO

My name is Lovely Nazareno, I love to be active. Back when I was a student, I joined campus organizations and student councils which contribute to my interest in participating with advocacy groups in creating positive influence to the society. The other side of me is an enthusiast of creative arts; I have a fascinating appreciation to the different forms of art – especially photography. I chose to be WYA intern because I want to learn more about WYA and do creative projects with them. At the end of this internship, I hope to be at my best; making everything I have learned a LIFESTYLE.

I dreamed of becoming someone that would bring positive change in my country. I want the Philippines to become a first world nation – a first world of our own – where the people are rooted in faith, equally cares for all and collectively enriching the society.

CATCH THEM IN ACTION!
