the adventures of yoshi

who is Sarah Meier-Albano?

Posted in Culture, Friends & Familia by yoshi on June 23, 2011

As part of the Philippine Department of Tourism’s mission to reach out to fellow Filipino-Americans living outside of the country, Secretary Lim (who just so happens to be my aunt’s direct boss hehehehe) is on a 6 US city road trip to personally welcome his brethren back home through a program called “Pinoy Homecoming.” (My parents are actually seeing him in SF in a few days!)

Along with the tour, Secretary Lim has been working with a few of our younger friends in the Philippines to bridge the gap between our generations’ people here in the states with those back in the motherland.

So, here is a great video interview of Sarah, who, as I’ve mentioned before, is one of the individuals spearheading the movement to “Heal Manila,” sharing her story and how she plans to participate in the Pinoy Homecoming starting with our generation =)

    I love this so much. it definitely opens my eyes to what the PI has become and what it has the potential to become. I haven’t visited in almost 7 years and it’s about time I take a trip back.
