Donguez, who also serves as the president of the University Student Government, will be joined by other young leaders from the ASEAN region in an enriching online and in-person program that will tackle issues on Climate Change & Sustainability, Digital Growth, and Future of Work.

Participants this year shall focus on addressing the challenge, “How can the youth play an active role to leverage megatrends in ASEAN?”

“To represent the University, the city of Bacolod, the province of Negros Occidental, and the Philippines in the international scene under the ASEAN Young Leaders Programme 2022 is a great honor and a rare opportunity. I will surely enjoy this trip and I hope to learn a lot of meaningful lessons that I can apply here in my community,” Donguez said.

The ASEAN Young Leaders Programme is a leadership development program for young leaders across the South East Asia region.
