Joedel O. Penaranda, a native Biliranon from Brgy. Langgao, Cabucgayan was chosen as a Philippine representative and one of the 300 accepted applicants around the world to the 2017 Harvard Project for Asian & International Relations (HPAIR) Harvard this February at Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA.

HPAIR is an internationally-recognized student-run organization at Harvard College, offering a forum of exchange to facilitate discussion of the most important economic, political, and social issues relevant to the Asia-Pacific region. Past speakers at the conferences include former President of the Republic of Korea and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Kim Dae-Jung, Governor General of Australia Peter Hollingworth, Secretary General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon, President of Singapore S.R. Nathan, former United States Ambassador to Japan John Thomas Schieffer, and former President of Goldman Sachs Philip Murphy.

“I am deeply blessed that I was chosen to co-represent my country to the said conference. The word ‘Harvard’ was just a feast of topic whenever we joke around of where to go or study but now, I am going there. This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity,” Penaranda expressed.

Over the years, HPAIR’s international conferences have emerged as one of Harvard College’s largest student-run annual events in the Asia-Pacific region, welcoming a wide variety of distinguished speakers and future leaders. HPAIR believes that finding common ground in Asian-Pacific issues is a dynamic and innovative process, which integrates ideas and actions from across Asia, and indeed, the whole world.
