Empowering the youth through the Kabataang Barangay where Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos started in politics has become very successful. It gives access to free education and skills training that equip young Filipinos in doing good in the country’s workforce. Some even become global players in the business. She acknowledges that social media is a big help for them to air their side when the commercial press people are more interested in a female politician’s bad hair day. Public service is Gov. Marcos’ life and as she plans to run as Senator, she stresses her commitment to back the President’s efforts to bring changes in society for the better good of the Filipinos.

The Katipunan ng Kabataan (KK) which means Youth Federation in English, is the mainstream federation of Filipino youths duly sponsored by the government of the Republic of the Philippines since the late President Ferdinand Marcos’ regime. It has chapters in all the 41,996 barangays of the country. Gov. Marcos was then the National Chairman of the Kabataang Barangay when she was 21 years old. Now, she is proud to say that many of its members are not successful in their chosen field or career. May it be in public service, corporate, oe business undertakings.
Media is More Interested in Bad Hair Day
It is tough for a female politician when she has to study policies but then the media is more interested in their having a bad hair day. She has been a subject of propaganda attacks since KB time and of course, from 1986. However, she admits that they also have a part in not airing their side. They do not have the sympathy of the media. It is only now that social media allows real people to air their part of the story. She also has nice words for millennials who are fortunate enough to have the technology throughout their existence. They can’t be fooled, she said.
Changes in Society
Under the leadership of President Rodrigo Roa Du30, the projects of former President Marcos are acknowledged. Better yet, beneficial works that were halted during the 1986 power grab by the Aquinos are revived. The infrastructure move is now continued with the Build Build Build initiative.Perhaps the nuclear power plant can serve areas that are not provided with enough electricity from the Meralco monopoly. Natural energy developments like solar, windmill and others can mushroom very soon. Most of all, the deuterium exploration and extraction can finally see the light.
Supporting the Boss of the Country
The anti-oligarchy Filipino leader who has a genuine pride of a sovereign country does not tolerate colonial mentality. That is what he has in common with the late President Marcos. Dictatorship can never happen in the Philippines. All major decisions must go through the Senate and the Congress. This is why the very able soon to be lady Senator Imee Marcos vows to work behind the good President Du30.
