    The Vice President was in South Korea for a series of events.

    At 9:00 am, the Vice President attended the launch of the 2ndAsia Pacific Youth Exchange (APYE) in Hanyang University, Seoul, South Korea. Hanyang University is one of the Office of the Vice President’s Angat Buhay partners. APYE is an international exchange program for the youth of Korea and ASEAN nations, which started in 2015. It was a program co-hosted by Hanyang University, Asian Development Bank, and Urban Youth Academy. The participants in APYE ponder about structural and fundamental solutions that could work as a sustainable development plan, and suggest programs to put an idea into action as a result of local investigation and research.

    In her speech, the Vice President emphasized to the young audience what it entails to help improve the lives of the marginalized. “Earlier, we asked “why” and “where” you are most needed—now we ask how. This means listening to your peers and the community in which you belong. This means allowing other people to participate in implementing programs and consulting them for improvements. This means feeling the ground, knowing where you are most needed, and actually being there. The center of leadership will always be the people whom you serve. They are the reason why you are doing what you are doing. They are the source of your strength, your passion, and your will.”
