Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto, a Brent Manila Batch 2007 alumnus, delivered his speech online as the guest speaker for the school’s 35th commencement exercises. A video of the mayor was uploaded on Brent Manila’s Facebook page where he conveys uplifting messages to the youth grappling with the changing nature of education and goal-setting due to the ongoing pandemic.
"I know that you will find it in you," shares Mayor Sotto. "Not just to stay safe, but to stay strong. Don't let any situation dampen your dreams or visions for the future.
"Rather, I challenge you to find ways to get more connected with your community. All the future money and success you might have will mean next to nothing if we're not connected to other members of society."
