Pia, my mom and I recently attended the Ramon Magsaysay Awards at the Cultural Center of the Philippines. It is the Asian equivalent of the Nobel Prize and I am proud to say that the Filipinos took initiative in establishing honors to worthy individuals in our region. The six awardees of this batch are all amazingly accomplished people in their respective fields. I was moved by their work and their passion to contribute. You can check out www.rmaf.org.ph .
