Lingayen Pangasinan September 16 – Governor Amado I. Espino, III reiterated to young Pangasinense leaders who attended the Pangasinan Youth Leaders Forum the sense of being cautious in everything that they do.
Addressing hundreds of youth leaders from secondary and tertiary schools in the province during the opening ceremonies of the youth forum held on September 15 at the Sison Auditorium, Governor Espino asked them to not become impulsive and easily swayed by negative influence.
“Always consider and think of your parents and those people who helped raise you (Sana isipin nyo muna ang mga taong nagpapagod para sa inyo),” Governor Espino reminded the youth leaders who convened for the two-day leadership forum as he expressed concern and appreciation to their parents who exert efforts and sacrifices for their good.
“Wala pong kwenta ang utak kung hindi naman alam ng puso ang mahalaga,” he stressed.
The provincial chief executive, who spent 16 years in public service as councilor, then Mayor in Bautista town and barangay captain which led him to become a member of the provincial board being the Liga ng mga Barangay provincial president, likewise urged the youth leaders to lead by example.
“Being a leader, you must also follow and accomplish things with all your heart,” Governor Espino pointed out.
Meanwhile, Pangasinan Youth Leaders Association (PYLA) President Anne Escano Morales, who led the implementation of the youth leaders’ forum, expressed gratitude to the provincial administration for extending support to the activity.
“Malaki ang tulong ng provincial government sa aktibidad na ito sapagkat tulad natin, nare-recognize nila ang magandang hangarin ng youth leadership forum para sa mga kabataan ng Pangasinan,” Morales said.
The leadership forum includes the following lectures: “I am a Leader”; The Constitutional Change to Federalism: Are we ready? ; The New Media and Leadership; and Levels of Leadership.
