With determination, hard work, and a positive attitude, anything else is possible. He dedicates his recognition to his family and to the Igorot community.

Push yourself outside of your comfort zone

Pushing yourself outside your comfort zone in areas unrelated to your dreams can help you pursue your goal with confidence. The good news is, traveling the world is not the only way to grow your zone of comfort. You can pursue various experiences that grow your comfort zone for little to no cost. The more you collect experiences, the more confidence you achieve. You can also do it by volunteering in any organization in your local community or at large. Volunteering can help you feel connected to those you are helping in the community. This experience may make you want to get involved with other aspects of your community, such as local politics or advocating for programs you believe are important. This confidence can translate into a renewed commitment to learn how to follow your dreams and to achieve them.

During his acceptance speech, "Jerry shared that humanitarianism is improving the lives of communities in crisis and emphasize that everyone can be impacted by a humanitarian disaster no matter where they live or where they end up studying and working. We should act all to enact meaningful change to combat the climate crisis; it is important that everyone act as a climate advocate in their own organization, pushes for change and expresses solidarity with current and future generations".
