Chevening Alumni named British Education Ambassadors to the Philippines
Recently, the British Embassy to the Philippines appointed seven Philippine Chevening Alumni to be British Education Ambassadors for the year.
Launched in 2013 as part of UK’s celebration of Philippine-British Friendship, the scheme aims to recognise the outstanding contribution that many alumni make to UK-Philippine relations and the role they play in promoting cooperation in the area of education.
This year’s ambassadors are Nassreena Sampaco-Baddiri, Danilo Concepcion, Amifaith Fider, Glenda Gloria, Susana Beatriz Latay, Elcid Pangilinan and Michael Toledo. They come from different sectors of society including the media, academia, justice, and business.
University of Edinburgh alumna Susana Latay said ‘studying in the UK instilled in me holistic confidence and openness. I was encouraged to question and challenge the status quo while being true to my moral responsibilities.’
‘The diversity of minds, cultures and landscape around me promoted collaborative solutions, and inspired a deeper sense of wonder and optimism for what each of us can contribute’, she concluded. Latay is a founding member of Ayala Corporation’s Innovation Group.
