President Rodrigo Duterte has rewarded Cebu girl who gave him her hard-earned savings during his 2016 presidential campaigns.
The President called on Michelle Marco at his office and announced to sponsor her education and help her secure a job after school.
He reiterated that one of his 2018 agendas is to empower the youth and he will ensure that no youth is jobless.
“As we build, build and build. I will be empowering the youth because they are the leaders of tomorrow,” he said.
Marco, an 11-year-old girl who mounted the stage during a campaign rally and handed Duterte a glass jar of 10- and 5-peso coins she’d saved for months has seen her prayers answered and he’s now going to places courtesy of the President.
