One Young World – Karl Molina

I am Karl Benson Molina, 21, a proud preschool teacher from the Philippines. It is my belief that I am the ideal candidate for One Young World because my young age never became and never will be an impediment in realizing that there is always something I can do for my community, my country, and the world.

After a short stay in Malaysia, I realized the magnitude of work that has to be done here in the Philippines in terms of making the lives of Filipino children better. In this regard, I made a step forward in fulfilling this mission by making a devotion of active service for them in the form of organizing charity events and doing volunteer works in shelters and orphanages.

Currently, I am involved with two orphanages, the He Cares Foundation and The Reception and Study Center for Children. It is my belief that I may not be able to change the world on a grand scale but I can make a difference one deed at a time.

I came from a huge family with huge values. Our family places a high premium on maintaining a harmonious relationship amongst us and it can be achieved by observing open lines of communication.

I believe my determination and perseverance translate to the output I deliver in terms of helping those who are in need and it is my hope that one day, my example will move more people in the future.

      Hello Kashfia, I think placing a high premium on communication and thereby fostering a harmonious relationship within the household is something inherent in Asian families. It is something to be proud of since it is an affirmation of how we value relationships. Not that I am saying other races or culture do not value relationships especially the ones within the boundaries of the family, but we Asians have a greater sense of it.

    I could not agree more Guillermo. I consider myself very fortunate because I teach children and somehow be able to influence how they will become in the future. More than a profession, I see it as a vocation ignited by my passion and my desire for my country to have a better generation.
