3 Filipino law students win international video contest
MANILA, Philippines – A video showing the unemployment crisis in the country won three Filipino law students a chance to present their short film at the International Labor Organization’s Youth Employment Forum next month in Geneva, Switzerland.
The two-minute film “Listen to my Story” became a ticket for junior law student Alfonso Orioste Jr. (San Beda College Alabang School of Law) and graduating law students Gian Carlo Miranda (Ateneo College of Law) and Janeca Naboya’s (Lyceum of the Philippines University – Manila) to the international forum.
The forum will be attended by over 100 youth participants from May 23 to 25.
The short film explored how the Filipino youths, faced with unemployment in their own country, were forced to seek better opportunities abroad.
The Youth Employment Forum aims to serve as a venue for the youth to exchange views and experiences about the employment situation in their respective countries and in turn, formulate and discuss possible initiatives which could create more decent work opportunities for the youth.
