DCLead Track: POLINN
Ba: Communication and Media Studies
Worked as: Senior Content Strategist for Rappler ; Instructor for the University of the Philippines
I have chosen DCLead because: Coming from the Philippines, one of the petri dishes in weaponizing social media to serve political agenda, I feel strongly about understanding digital communication issues and looking for ethical solutions. I find DCLead key in helping me achieve this goal as it provides a critical lens for examining the political, developmental, and technical aspects that surround digital communication. The diverse community of DCLead also places the program in the perfect position to analyze various perspectives that equip us to become ethical and inclusive leaders needed in this era.
