The National Youth Commission officials and personnel gave a rousing welcome to its newly appointed Chairperson Cariza Yamson Seguerra in ceremonies held at the NYC main office at West Insula Building, West Avenue, Quezon City.
"The Filipino youth is faced with multifarious problems that need to be addressed and I enjoin everyone to bring NYC to the grassroots and let them feel us," NYC Chairperson Seguerra said.
Seguerra also mentioned that, " I am a perfectionist that is why I expect everyone to give their best- their 100% performance. I assure everyone that I will listen to the suggestions and recommendations of the staff especially those who have served the Commission for many years."
Chairperson Seguerra (who replaced former NYC Chairperson Gregorio Ramon Tingson ) was sworn into office by Commissioner Earl P. Saavedra to officially assume the post.
"I believe that aside from the youth development policies that the NYC is mandated to churn out, it should also focus more on the marginalized sector like the Indigenous youth, young victims of drug and substance abuse, among others and do its part to address the concerns of the sector, " adds NYC Chair Seguerra.
"I call on everyone to work together because the future of the country relies on the NYC," Seguerra ended.
Prior to the official assumption into office, Chairperson Seguerra took his oath before President Rodrigo R. Duterte at the Malacanang Palace.
