[ACD Daily 004] Thank You

Lately, I took an extra mile in what I usually do. I heeded to the challenge of pursuing a vacant seat in the National Youth Commission as it's Commissioner-at-Large. It was certainly a huge challenge to hurdle. 

A new Commissioner was chosen, Raphael Cruz, son of Usec. Cruz from the Office of the Executive Secretary. My heartfelt congratulations!

But my journey for this goal would not be meaningless as people both whom I know and not have thrown their support and did not hesitate to support my bid. I dedicate this article to all of them and know that deep in my heart I appreciate all the things you did and I hope you will never cease to believe the things we are fighting for. 

I personally want to thank all the 37 endorsements who went beyond words to show their support. Without you, I won't have the enough will to pursue.
