An SK Chairman At Its Best!

An SK Chairman At Its Best!

By: Mary Joy Aurelio

To be a Great Leader in the midst of a Pandemic is such a huge challenge for every leader in our country because it takes flexibility, wisdom, power and strength to be able to lead despite the situations that we have right now.

Last June 26, 2021 Voice of the Youth Network introduced to us a leader who took up the challenge to be at his best in leading the youth of their Barangay in the midst of pandemic. 

On their segment “Bilib Kami Sayo” they introduce to us the SK Chairperson of  Barangay 

Sta. Maria Magdalena San Pablo City Laguna the Hon. Jhuncel Deriquito as their Guest.

SK Chairperson Jhuncel Deriquito is not just a typical type of SK Chairman because he also does a lot of things aside from being an SK Chairperson.

He was also a Teacher by Profession he was an Instructor in Dalubhasaan ng Lungsod ng San Pablo and also an Event Coordinator/Host, A former Radio DJ in his College time on a local Radio Station and now taking up his Masteral Degree in Laguna State Polytechnic University with the Master of Arts and Education Major in Guidance and Counselling.

Doing all those works at the same time was not an easy job especially that he needed to focus also on the welfare of the Youth of their Barangay, but despite his busy schedules he still managed to lead the Youth at his best by looking after their needs especially in this season of pandemic.

When he was asked by Papa Lem (One of the VOTY Hosts) on how he managed his time well in spite of the many things that he is doing he says that “It is Important to know your most Priority” and also it includes the right discipline and to really know your goal.

Part of the things that he accomplished during this pandemic is to provide USB, Laptop tables and headsets for high school students and free school supplies for elementary students since the new mode of learning is through online.

They also lend help to their co-Barangays by giving away hygiene kits for every house

(735 Houses were given).

SK Chairperson Jhuncel Deriquito’s main advocacy is to promote Mental Health Awareness to the whole country since he was a psych graduate he believes that mental health is as important as our physical health and it should not be taken for granted.

We had a lot of youth nowadays who suffers depressions and anxiety and the suicidal rate are getting higher each day especially that we are all staying at home, they need help and Sk Jhuncel believes that they need serious attention and he wants to do something about it by raising awareness that Mental Health is a serious issue that needs to be acknowledged.

This young leader here was really doing a great job in leading the youth by setting an example to his fellow leaders that they can be at their best in leading and serving the youth even in the midst of pandemic.

SK Chairman Jhuncel Derequito is really true to his words when he says that “Minsan hindi na kailangang may magtulak sa atin to be a leader, minsan nasa puso nadin talaga ang pagiging isang Leader” being a leader and a servant at its best needs heart for this is where everything flows through. Our youth needs a leader who will not just have a knowledge to lead but also a Heart to lead.

Indeed you are truly An SK Chairman at Its Best!
