“Amerikano ako, pero Pilipino din.”

Daniel* talked about discovering his Filipino-American identity while growing up in the US. He said he wanted Filipino-Americans to visit the Philippines and remember they are Filipino. “…I am proud to be Filipino. And you (referring to Hungry Minds children) help me remember that.”

What a great reminder to the children to be proud of who they are! Thanks for the visit, Kuya Daniel!
