It’s another title to be given to the Queen of all Media Kris Aquino if ever she becomes the Ambassadress for Goodwill to Asia. It’s also another humbling opportunity for Filipinos because out of all other countries in Asia, a representative from the Philippines has been chosen and the presidential sister is the top choice to be Asia’s representative.
Kris said that she has been waiting for the approval of her appointment in the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees for almost 10 months now.
According to Kris, it was just last week when she knew about the approval of her appointment during the UNHCR meeting held in Switzerland where presidential adviser Ronald Llamas attended the said meeting.
“…what makes this appointment a big honor is that it’s not just in the Philippines. Ako po ang magiging representative ng Asia. Ang American representative si Angelina Jolie,” Kris proudly told her audience.
She further added, “Merong representative na galing France or Norway, sana hindi ako nagkamali, and one from Australia. For Asia, Pilipinas po ang napili nila at ako po ang tatayo para sa ating lahat. Maraming maraming salamat po kasi karangalan ito hindi lang sa akin at sa pamilya ko kung hindi karangalan para sa bansa natin. Thank you, United Nations.”
