Students from many different universities flocked to take their selfies together with the youngest Senatorial Candidate Elmer Francisco after the Bantay Boto Senatorial Forum held at UP Diliman. Aside from being among them, students loved Francisco’s answers to most if not all of the questions including his various stands in many different pressing issues that our country is currently facing.
The youth could actually see hope in Francisco that when they graduate, there would be decent paying jobs waiting for them unlike the status quo wherein millions of students graduate from college who end up being unemployed, underemployed or away from their families as OFWs.
