From 45 countries around the world, down to five in the finals, Khella Faith A. Caputolan, 21 years old, a third-year BS Tourism Management student of CTU Danao campus, representing Asia in the international arena bested all other adversaries from India, Great Britain, San Marino, and Belgium during the recently concluded Best Youth Speaker of the World competition held last April 22, 2022.
From her humble beginnings as a freelance host and extemporaneous speaker, her knack for speaking brought her to the world arena of public speaking. She represented the biggest continent of the world, Asia.
A consistent national awardee in her field of specialization, a certified volunteer, an advocate of change, affiliated with seven organizations both local and national, and founded a charity-based program -Project Hope, these made Khella an exceptional and promising individual at a very young age.
Khella, a self-confessed philanthropist pushes her way to the finals bringing on her burning passion for helping others who are in dire need. With her Project Hope Foundation, she has been molded by her advocacy on believing that in our little ways we can make a big impact on the lives of others.
“Naipanalo po natin! Best Youth Speaker of the World 2022 is the Philippines” Khella posted on her FB page after bagging the most sought-after gold medal of the Best Youth Speaker of the World 2022.
“As I represent our continent to the world competition I will always be happy to look back on the journey of a young dreamer who refuses not to fight and here we are now”, her statement prior to the world competition.-Sarah Jane Colina/ICPA Danao
