Camarines Sur Governor Miguel Villafuerte gave words of wisdom to over 800 youth who gathered in a summit in San Jose town.

Villafuerte told the participants of the San Jose Youth Summit that challenges in life should not be a hurdle in achieving their dreams.

“Many successful people came from disadvantaged communities, have failed many times, and faced negative criticisms,” he said.

“Like them, don’t let any of these stop you from achieving all your dreams in life. Nothing should stop you.Not even your age can dictate how well you can lead and succeed,” shared Villafuerte.

The San Jose Youth Summit 2018 was held last August 27 at the Municipal Sports Complex to address issues faced by the youth.

According to the provincial government, topics during the summit include the effects of illegal drugs and HIV/AIDS awareness.

In another Facebook post, the governor thanked the San Jose town for having him and letting him speak and inspire hundreds of youth.

“Thank you for having us, San Jose LGU and SK Federation, during the San Jose Youth Congress—a great opportunity for us not only to inspire the youth but also to consult with the leaders on how the Provincial Government and the youth organizations could partner and collaborate in delivering programs and services for the youth sector,” said the governor.
