Trainee Research Assistant; Member
I am a graduate of University of Santo Tomas with a degree in Architecture. The importance of Chinese culture and language has always been impressed upon me from an early age. Despite that, conversing with my fellow Chinese has always been hard. With our generation, you can tell that it is difficult for many to use Hokkien or any of the Sino-Philippine languages for everyday use. It shows how our Chinese culture here in the Philippines is disappearing. Living in the Philippines, a lot of us forget that we are Chinese or of Chinese descent. I believe that Lannang Archives can change this. I believe that this organization can bring back the Chinese culture in the Philippines. I want to take this opportunity as a research assistant to expand my knowledge and experience, and also to enhance my knowledge of Hokkien and our Filipino-Chinese culture.
