Despite being the youngest child, Keano Aniban describes himself as an “old soul.” He’s always been fascinated by his parents’ keepsakes—from old vinyl players to vintage cameras. “It was more of the stories behind them and all the fun adventures everything about them depict—from dents and scratches, to stickers, to paint jobs,” He shares.

For Keano, looking back and remembering our past is essential to building a strong foundation for our future. The 20-year-old Blue Eagle grew up being exposed to the beauty of Filipino culture. “My father taught us about the great food different provinces in our country have to offer. My mother made us appreciate the Filipino artistry. Having travelled to a few provinces in the Philippines, I was able to build a deeper appreciation for all things Filipino.”
