The National Youth Commission selected Jude Martin V. Amiscaray to represent the Philippines in the 14-country program aimed at promoting the young “innovative minds”. He joins a select pool of 54 high school students in a 20-day series of cultural exposure, site visits and multi-cultural dialogues on environment-related issues within both regional and global contexts.

Other countries that are represented in the program are: Brunei, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, South Korea, Lao, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and Japan.

Amiscaray is a consistent honor student with a strong interest in math and science. He is also a champion debater and public speaker.
