Nelson Mandela once said, “Our children are our greatest treasure. They are our future.” It couldn’t have rang more true in our cover story for this month.
This September, Yes Philippines features four FilBrit kids who took part in a training workshop for the HS2. The High Speed 2 (HS2) will be the new railway project to carry passengers between London, Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds in a shorter period of time while helping to lighten the load of the rest of the railways. The workshop that the children attended is to help prepare them for their future plans, in case they would like to pursue a career in the railway industry especially during the HS2 project.
Another story we are featuring this month is the return of Juan EU Konek and its plans for the future as they decide to go digital. Meet the four lovely hosts of this award-winning program and get to know who they are as we wait in anticipation to watch their shows.
Filipinos took centerstage in the UK again this month. The Davao City Groove Unlimited Dancers, representing the Philippines, won a much-deserved award after besting several others here in Blackpool. On the other hand, Lloyd and Jackielou Balatongan, collectively known as Soulm8s, sang their way to the Grand Finals of the Soundwaves Music Competition in Birmingham. Clearly, we Filipinos are truly talented individuals as evidenced by our successes on the international stage.
We hope you enjoy this month’s issue. Happy reading!
