Making mom proud! Enzo Oreta fetes outstanding gender awareness advocates
Malabon councilor Enzo Oreta remembered his late mother, former senator Tessie Aquino Oreta, as he graced the awarding ceremony for a recognition named after her.
Oreta personally handed plaques of recognition to the awardees of the 2021 Gender Awareness and Development Summit Tessie Aquino Oreta (TAO) Awards.
In a Facebook post, Oreta said the awardees were deserving of the recognition.
“I’m sure, kung kasama natin si mom ngayon, she’ll be very proud,” he said.
Oreta also lauded the organizers for mounting a successful event.
“Siguradong sa pamamagitan nito ay mananatiling buhay ang alaala at nasimulang adbokasiya ng aking ina, lalong lalo na ang kanyang paniniwala na laging ‘TAO ang una!’,” he said.
