Sen. Alan to Taguigeños: Let’s push each other up, let’s push the Philippines up!

“Let’s push Taguig up, let’s push each other up, let’s push the Philippines up!”

This was Senator Alan Peter Cayetano’s message to the candidates and the audience during the Mutya ng Taguig 2024 coronation night on May 25, 2024.

Aligned with this year’s theme, “Taguigueña, Panalo Ka” which honors the exceptional qualities of the women of Taguig, Cayetano emphasized that the candidates must be good role models and representatives of the city.

He encouraged the candidates to use their platforms to positively influence people, telling them to be good ambassadors and influencers.

“You don’t need to have the name ‘influencer’ or have a million followers to be an influencer. You are already influencers; you don’t have to be Ms. Taguig to be one,” he said.

The independent senator also shared how the saying “Whatever you celebrate, you elevate,” by preacher and motivational speaker Myles Munroe, has influenced his perspective.

“This means that when you’re in the habit of pushing something up, then expect someone to also push you up. And expect that someone will push you up. Sooner or later, lahat kayo naitataas,” he said.

“So when we celebrate four hundred and thirty seven years of Taguig, itinataas natin ito. When we celebrate Ms. Taguig later on, itinataas natin siya. At siya naman ay itataas niya ang Taguig,” he added.

Cayetano concluded his message by urging all Taguigeños to embrace this practice for the continued upward trajectory of the city and ultimately the entire country.

“Let’s push Taguig up, let’s push each other up, let’s push the Philippines up! Para tunay na magiging siksik, liglig, at umaapaw ang bayan ng Pilipinas,” he said.
