Proudly Pinoy – May 11, 2013

On Saturday, May 11th 2013, the Proudly Pinoy Conference rocked the walls of Blessed Pope John Paul II Catholic Secondary School with an exciting collection of special guests, workshop facilitators, delicious Filipino cuisine and a talent show featuring spectacular singing, dancing, rapping and more from people of all ages, families and friends of the Filipino community!

We were blessed with many, many, many guest speakers from the community to welcome us to the event.
