‘Reimagine hope,’ JAZA urges youth
Delivering the keynote at an online conference organized by the alumni of the Ayala Young Leaders Congress (AYLC) on February 27, Ayala Corporation Chairman and CEO Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala urged young leaders all over the country to “reimagine hope,” as a way to power through the changes faced by communities and the rest of the country. “I share the belief that hope indeed springs eternal, especially in challenging situations. However, I believe that hope is not about being passive and just waiting for good fortune to come. Hope, I believe, requires determination, action, and inspiration,” said Zobel de Ayala. Launched in 1998, AYLC is an annual student leadership summit designed to build confidence, hone leadership skills, nurture commitment, foster nationalism and idealism, and encourage faithful stewardship and is the Ayala group’s flagship youth development program.
