 – A THOMASIAN has been selected as one of four
Philippine representatives to the 13th annual Hitachi Young Leaders Initiative

Fifth-year accountancy student Ariel
Joseph Nipas was chosen to represent UST after a screening process
conducted by Hitachi executives, HYLI alumni, and former Supreme Court
Associate Justice Antonio Eduardo Nachura.

Nipas will join 31 other
delegates from eight participating countries: Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Myanmar, the
Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Aside from Nipas, there will be
three other delegates from the Philippines: Marc Wendolf Duque (BS Management
Engineering, Ateneo de Manila), Danielle Marie Cang (BS Applied Economics and
BS Management of Financial Institutions, De La Salle University-Manila), and
Raphael Justin Jambalos (BS Economics University of the Philippines-Diliman).

Nipas is part of the Accountancy
Pautakan Team that won first place in the group category in 2014. He is also an
officer of Becarios de Santo Tomas, the organization of students with
scholarship grants.

With the theme “ASEAN Perspectives
on the Social and Environmental Challenges of Designing and Implementing Public
Transportation Systems,” the 13th HYLI will be held from July 27 to 30 at the
New World Hotel in Makati.

HYLI began in 1996 as a community
relations program of Hitachi, a Japanese multinational. The program aims to
develop future Asian leaders through a platform that expands youth perspectives
on regional and global issues. Dayanara T. Cudal
