BRIDGE: JUSTINE BORINGOT
asking myself: am I Justin the American, Justine the Filipino, or both? As an individual who plants both feet in between these bridging cultures, it is imperative that we educate one another about the similarities we can acknowledge and respect, but most importantly celebrate and rejoice in the differences that make us special and unique. Over the years, I had to realize that even though I was raised in the states, I will always come back to the roots and values which defined my parents, which defined my family, which defined IBP, and finally, the Filipino nation.
Justine graduated from Oregon State University in 2018, majoring in public health and minoring in business.
