Albay Gov. Bichara to youth: You have the power to change this nation in a better place


Albay Governor Al Francis Bichara attended the opening of the Regional Youth Day (RYD) in the Bicol region last March 2 held at the Albay Astrodome.

The event carries the theme, “Filipino Youth in Mission: Beloved. Gifted. Empowered.”

The governor spoke before the participants and encouraged them to take an “active role in nation-building as they are the future of our nation.”

Bichara also reminded the youth that they have the power to transform our nation into a better place.

“The vision of our country lies in the hands of our youths. To everyone present today, you have the power to transform this nation into a better place. You also have the ability to lead their fellow citizens into the right direction,” Governor Bichara was quoted as saying.

According to the province, the RYD is an event where the Bicol dioceses express, in every concrete way, their great love for the young.

“It is an occasion offered for young people to celebrate and deepen their faith, and a special moment of coming together as one body, united in a journey towards intimacy with Christ,” it said.
