Why I am excited about Move This World: Growing up, working and studying in the most war-ridden island in the Philippines might explain my desire to get involved in peace building. I believe that instilling the culture of peace through the minds of young people is the most sustainable way. Using movement can be very effective way to capture vulnerable and young minds. I am a Filipino. I will do this for my beloved country. But I am also a citizen on Earth. I will do this for the entire community.
