What am I fighting for

We want a better Philippines for our kids and the next generation. We should not let them experience what we experienced. Traffic should be a thing of the past. Filipinos should be able to have more control over their time. Through infrastructure development and jobs creation, we can promote a more inclusive growth that benefits all Filipinos.
