ANGELI Therese “Angel” E. Angliongto, two-time JCI Awardee, is the president of the JCI Davaoeña Daba-daba for 2021 after serving as vice president for business affairs in 2019 and vice president for community affairs in 2020.
Angel joined the JCI local organization (LO) in 2018 and immediately gained recognition for her active involvement and was thus named “Most Outstanding New Member” during the Mindanao AreaCon Agung Awards in the same year. She was again awarded as the “Most Outstanding Member” during the same event the year after in 2019.
JCI Davaoeña Daba-Daba is a non-profit organization of young leaders. Its purpose is to contribute to the advancement of the global community by providing young people with leadership skills, social responsibility values to create positive change.
The only daughter of Sebastian “Anggie” Angliongto and Archt. Teresita Estrada Angliongto, she follows the footsteps of her father who served as the Philippine Jaycees National President in 1976 and copped the One World Award in 1976, the JCI Most Outstanding Member of the World Award, given out during the international organization’s World Congress.
Her father being one of the founders of JCI Davaoeña Daba-daba did not make it any easier for her as expectations are set high. But she struggles on to make her own mark, and stepping out from her father’s huge shadow through the various trainings offered by JCI.
One of the many projects she has initiated that indeed made a difference is the project “Trade to Donate.” This was launched on Facebook at the height of the Covid-19 lockdown. She started by bartering her personal belongings in exchange for grocery items, toiletries, medicines, hygiene kits, cat foods, and dog foods given out to those in need. It has since taken wings and benefitted many families in need, as well as rescued dogs and cats.
She resonates with the CGI movie “Alita: Battle Angel” where the heroine Alita told Hugo, “I’d do whatever I had to for you. I’d give you whatever I have. I’d give you my heart.” Just before Alita literally gave Hugo her heart.
