Someone was kind enough to message me on Facebook,
”Hi congratulations for winning 2nd prize at Goi Peace Foundation Essay Contest! Proud of you!”
I immediately went to their website and found my name in the winners list.
From among 7,216 entries from 144 UNESCO Member-States, I placed second. The first place winner gets an all-expense-paid trip to Japan. I guess it wasn’t my time yet. Haha.
I am sincerely thankful for my second place. This was my first ever international essay entry and I am humbled by the result. God is truly amazing.
This victory is dedicated to my team. Without you, I wouldn’t have a story to tell.
THE THREADS TEAM
Young performers from the Northern tribes of Luzon woven together with one passion by one GOD – uplifting the youth through creative arts on stage.
As I am writing this entry, 14 young people have hiked down from Mt. Province to Bayombong to join the 5th batch auditions. I am thrilled with what’s going on. I salute such bravery. The battle is being fought.
If you have a heart for the tribes and you want to be part of the team through prayers or financial help or be a fan, message me and we’ll add you to our family.

Let the spears be sharpened!
