Isabela Governor Grace Padaca talks about how her Ramon
Magsaysay Award reaffirms her efforts to empower people
to use their democratic right to elect leaders of their
own choosing. Four years after bringing down the “Dy-nasty”
in Isabela, she believes that this recognition symbolizes
that change is possible. Gov. Padaca discuses her continued
work for change through the Kaya Natin movement. They
make the rounds of schools and meet with different polling
groups and civil society organizations. Kaya Natin encourages
people to make the necessary preparations for better
elections now instead of waiting for the last minute.
Liberal Example of Leadership: Grace Padaca
2008 Ramon Magsaysay Awardee for Government Service
Harvey Keh, director for youth leadership and social
entrepreneurship of the Ateneo School of Government,
introduces Gov. Padaca. He speaks of her courage and
her passion to serve. He calls her a bastion of hope.
She is an icon of leadership that proves that one
need not compromise one’s values in order to
serve effectively in government.
