I really appreciate the effort and the fact that it is going around and…Read more Parking, it’s more fun in the Philippines

Get Them While They Are Young

I've begun with my HIV advocacy early this year. My last talk was on December 22 or around that time; speaking about my experiences in the Australian-New Zealand Bank in Makati and Eastwood. It was different to do it in a corporate setting -- because these are some of the sectors that we have to…Read more Get Them While They Are Young
