I joined other Central Visayas youth leaders in posing with President Corazon Aquino during the Konsultahang Kabataan 1987. I was the Region 7 youth coordinator. The other youth leaders representing Cebu were Aristotle B. Batuhan (former congressional candidate), Jorge John Cane (now Danao City councilor), Victor Ariel Canoy (son of the late Vic Canoy), Bellona Luna (who became a staff member of Joey Lina), Ramsey Quijano (now Cebu chapter president of the IBP), Jay Yuvallos (now a business leader in Mandaue City), and Josefat Montebon. Those who represented Bohol and Negros Oriental were Ferdinand Ayos, Orlando Ducay, Luis Dungog, Ma. Neriza Lumantao, Avelino Olasiman, Ma. Anna Prisicila Pareja, Perlita Penkian, Rufino Sun Jr., and Rogelio Torres. We joined the national consultation of youth leaders in Pook ni Maria Makiling in Los Baños, Laguna on February 23-28, 1987 that proposed the formation of the National Youth Council, National Youth Assembly, and Sangguniang Kabataan as alternatives to the Kabataang Barangay.
