Ruste shares, “I am very proud of this new breed of heroes that we are recognizing this year. Our TOYM recipients definitely deserve to be acknowledged for not only striving and excelling at their chosen fields but more so for going further beyond what is expected of them – willingly helping to uplift our country and our fellow Filipinos to prosper in the best way they know how. We hope that the stories we highlighted here today be an inspiration to the youth, our country’s next generation of leaders.”
