Artist from the Philippines, 19
"During the pandemic, I’ve used my passion in art to raise awareness on important issues happening in the Philippines and the world. I want my art to have a message that will reach many hearts and minds, and maybe unite these people towards the same goal. As someone who can’t join protests especially in the time of the pandemic, I figured out that I can still be part of an online protest with my art. With the talent given to me, I will make sure to make use of it to bring even the tiniest bit of change in this world. All of us have a role to play in this, it’s up to you if you will stand up for what is right and just or remain in silence, fear, and ignorance."
