Therese, a 17-year-old Grade 11 student at the Sacred Heart School – Ateneo De Cebu and an Eagle Scout of the Leader’s Council Scouting Unit. But Therese is not your average student – she’s an inspiring activist who is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of children and youth who are marginalized and discriminated against. Her favorite quote, “The Youth is the hope of the fatherland” by the great Philippine national hero, Dr. Jose Rizal, drives her to help and empower her fellow youth in her community.
