Carlo Palallos Patoc of Bonawon, Siaton, was chosen by the National Youth Commission from among several applicants from around the country for this 11-day visit from April 10 to 21 in Japan.

The Jenesys program, funded by the Japanese government and in partnership with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations secretariat, intends to deepen the participants’ understanding of the different facets of the Japanese society including politics, diplomacy, economics and culture. It is also designed to promote mutual understanding of the future generation of Asean and East Asia Summit member countries.

Patoc said he is excited at the thought of not only visiting Japan but of representing the Philippines in this important event. “I consider it a great honor to have been chosen for this program,” he said.

Two other students from Foundation University will also be representing the Philippines in a month-long study in the U.S., also in April.

Albertus Nikolae M. Cena, senior high school student, and Jesmar T. Lawanan, an English major at the College of Arts & Sciences, were selected to be part of the Philippine delegation to the Southeast Asian Youth Leadership Program. They will be joined by three other students from Dumaguete — Abigail Cabonita and Iphraim Cabristante of Silliman University and Kathleen Dawn Young Ricardo of St. Paul University. Their chaperone, Ryan Jay Riconalla, is a faculty of SPUD.
