When elected President of the Temple University Philippine American Council, Chris envisioned putting together an event to showcase his culture to the rest of the community. Partnering with the Main Campus Program Board, the dream turned into a reality with From Manila to Phila: A Filipino Showcase on May 1, 2009. Headlined by comedian Jo Koy (Comedy Central, Chelsea Lately, Adam Carolla Show) and with accompanying acts JR Aquino (American Idol, The Voice) and a variety of local acts, Chris accomplished his goal in front of a sold-out crowd. With the success of the event and the ongoing efforts throughout the year, Chris and his team were awarded Student Organization of the Year in 2009.
