During one conversation with former Senator Bongbong Marcos, he asked me why former Kabataang Barangay Presidents are so successful. I could not offer an answer so he answered his question himself. “It is because of the training,” he quipped.

This afternoon a group of former Kabataang Barangay Federation Presidents had a luncheon reunion at the Shangrila Restaurant at Times Street in Quezon City. They are all successful professionals and businessmen. At least four of them are lawyers (President Danny Concepcion of the University of the Philippines, Atty. Rey Reyes Jr., Atty. Allyson Erwin Bautista, Atty. Roni Baby Ignacio-Jose), and one is a Doctor of Medicine, Dr. Cecil Carag.

Miguel Ignacio is an alumnus of the RizalTech. Bernardo Tensuan is the former National Chairman of the Kabataang Barangay as well as the Federation President of Metro Manila, later on replaced by Danny Concepcion. I was President of the KB Federation of Pasig.

To my right is Danny Concepcion of UP.
