Dagupan City Mayor Belen Fernandez urged campus journalists to pursue positive change.
The Pangasinan politiko made the remark during the opening of the three-day Children Summit on Journalism last January 29.
“This Children’s Summit on Journalism is our continuing vote of confidence that the young people of Dagupan hold so much promise in bringing positive change for our city. As future journalists of Dagupan, we want to nurture a new breed of young active citizens who can move others to seek and pursue positive change,” Fernandez said.
She added it is important young Dagupeños are able to express calls for change.
“It is my fervent wish that through this summit, we shall be able to produce a great pipeline of future leaders of the city who shall work for growth and progress, and shall be a positive influence for other Dagupeños to pursue the same,” she said.
