Hi amazing person!
This is my brother, Jon Paulo Siglos. He is finishing his 5th year in Chemical Engineering at the University of San Carlos, Cebu City Philippines. He has been an achiever for as long as I could remember - a diligent student who has been bagging awards since he was 8years old- a consistent honor student, a scholarship awardee and has never stopped working hard for his dreams up to this day (he's now 20 years old). Memorizing facts? Hitting amazing GPAs? It has never been a problem for him!
He has been offered an amazing opportunity to be part of Asia Pacific Youth Exchange's #EMPOWER2030 set in Incheon City & Jeollabuk-do, South Korea on August 11-23, 2017 . The Participating fee is $1,000(est. Php 49,859.02) which includes accomodations, food, transportation(within Korea), training kit, etc. This will be a wonderful opportunity for him to be able to use his creative mind in making his mark known to the world!
So this is where I come in. Being brilliant has never been a problem to my brother. While he can brave whatever mind-challenge the universe may have for him, he does need assistance in paying the fee and his airfare as well. By the way, his college tuition is paid by his scholarship sponsor (he maintains a really good GPA to keep hold of his scholarship this from his 1st year until now)- in case you were wondering. 50% Participating fee is already covered, so we need help with the other half ($500 or Php24,929) and his airfare as well (approx. $500, roundtrip, this is the minimum amount I can find and I AM SURE he won't mind this at all!).
I am knocking on the doors of your kind heart to help my brother participate in this wonderful opportuntity- I am encouraging him to brave this coz I know that if there's a will, there will always be a way and most importantly, I know there is a lot of humanity willing to help us achieve this! I told him that when this succeeds (my optism is annoyingly high, tbh) he should personally thank each and every one of his 'helpers'and give you pictures of his trip -- constant updates for that matter!
Thank you for taking the time to read this and have a fantabulous day ahead!
