I really enjoyed hearing Lia talk about the history of the Phillipines and the role that political protest and  activism played over the past 30+ years. My stepdad”s family is Filipino and I was raised in a Filipino family so it was really interesting to hear about some of the political turmoil that the country faces because I never really had a chance to talk to my family about it.

It is great to hear a first-hand account of being involved in such a large scale social protest both as a teenager and as an adult and to hear about Lia’s background. Lia is my advisor and it was great hearing another side of her life that I never knew about.

    Now having heard this, are you going to ask your family about it? To see if they have a story to tell you or not?
