In 2018, Camillo Geaga joined the NEXTGEN Travel Fellowship program and he visited the Philippines for the second time. During his recent trip, Camillo was inspired to complete his Associate Degree at the Los Angeles City College. He was inspired more ways than one. In 2019, Camillo plans to continue his education at the California State University Northridge and achieve his bachelors degree in Public Health.
During his trip to the Philippines in 2018, Camillo joined the Bayanihan Foundation in donating thousands of books to elementary schools in Giporlos, Samar.
Camillo also visited Pintuyan, Leyte hoping to see whale sharks but unfortunately it was not the migratory season for whales at that time.
Camillo Geaga also visited Iligan City and visited my aunt and uncle, Dr. Vicente and Mrs. Luz Saavedra. He got a chance to see the city of waterfalls and swam at the Kabacsanan Falls, one of the many majestic waterfalls in Iligan.
Camillo Geaga is not the only one inspired by his trip to the Philippines. Vicky Geaga, Camillo’s mother was also motivated to encourage her friends and family to donate to Bayanihan Foundation Worldwide. “I’ve chosen this nonprofit because their mission means a lot to me, and I hope you’ll consider contributing as a way to celebrate with me. Every little bit will help me reach my goal,” Vicky Geaga said on a recent Facebook post.
