(My only agenda is to improve the welfare of people like me who have disabilities.)

“Noong ako’y bata pa, ako po ay naoperahan at gusto ko pong matulungan ang mga kapwa ko po PWD na mapabuti ang kanilang mga buhay at mapaganda ang kanilang sitwasyon lalo na ngayong may pandemic na hirap na hirap lalo na sa accessibility, sa mobility ng pagpunta sa trabaho,” he added.
