Gerald Anderson is the new Philippine Youth Commission Ambassador

The Philippine Youth Commission has recently appointed Kapamilya actor Gerald Anderson as its new ambassador.  

According to a report by Philstar.com, the 30-year-old actor was chosen to be the next ambassador by the Philippine Youth Commission — headed by KASAMA (Kabataang Sama-samang Maglilingkod) resident Gerald Ortiz with ULAP (Union of Local authority of the Philippines) president and Quirino governor Dakila “Dax” Cua, KASAMA National Adviser Nellie King and Senator Imee Marcos.

“I’m very honored, very proud and I’m very excited kasi merong panibagong platform para makatulong sa ibang tao,” he said.

Speaking before 900 Sangguniang Kabataan leaders all over the country at a ceremony last December 8 at the Grand Ballroom of Venus Hotel in Baguio City, Gerald recalled a time when he realized how being a celebrity can influence the public to aid those who are in need.   

“Hindi po ako nag-dalawang isip lumusong sa tubig, s’yempre bata at adventurous, para tanungin ko mga kapit-bahay ko if nangangailangan sila ng tulong. Nagkataon na-picturan ako at may nagpost sa social media at kumalat. Du’n ko po nakita ‘yung influence ng isang artista para tumulong sa kapwa. Mula noong araw na ‘yon, sinabi ko sa sarili ko na gagawin ko ang best ko, basta nasa position ako at kaya ko, para makatulong sa iba.”

Gerald plans on inspiring the youth, and show how it’s important to help others with the best of their abilities.

“Kailangan ‘yung ibang tao, kung ano kaya nating ibigay, ibigay natin sa iba at marami tayong matutunan sa pagtulong sa iba. May plano kami about education, syempre sports na mas malapit sa puso ko.”

Meanwhile, Star Magic congratulated Gerald for his achievement.
