Aiza Seguerra bids goodbye to NYC, tells youth to ‘be kind always’
National Youth Commission chairperson Aiza Seguerra has quit after serving almost two years in the Duterte government.
In a Facebook post, Seguerra admitted that working in the NYC has been “one of the most unforgettable experiences of my life,” while thanking the officials and workers of NYC and other agencies for their support.
Seguerra met the President early this month about his decision to leave government.
“I met with our dear President last March 5th to tender my resignation as NYC Chairperson. I coordinated with his office because I wanted to personally tell him my reason. Knowing how social media can exaggerate or twist the truth, I wanted to make sure that he’s going to hear it from me. He was very understanding and supportive of my decision. Para siyang tatay. Nakinig, inintindi at pinalakas ang loob ko. I told him how much I valued his trust and how this experience made me appreciate public service and our public servants,” Seguerra said.
“Sa kabataang Pilipino, napakarami kong natutunan sa inyo. Kayo ang puso ng lipunan and you must be heard. In this very divisive society, I hope you will lead the country in finding commonalities that will bring us all together. Be kind, always.”
