Frankie Pangilinan may be one of the most opinionated young people today.
She would openly air out her sentiments, her thoughts, on social media platforms, regarding issues that hound the country.
Her voice was among the first ones to oppose disrespect for women, the Anti-Terror Bill, the non-renewal of the franchise of ABS-CBN, and every other issue that greatly affects the lives of Filipinos.
According to GMA's report, Frankie made a stand for the youth, stating that her generation is one raised watching "Hunger Games" and "Harry Potter," both films highlight the resistance to an oppressive system.
Here's what Frankie said:
"We're a lot more technologically savvy than you, and in this age of digital media that means that we need to be respected."
"It would be incredibly invalidating to say that us educating ourselves and us becoming more progressively aware of issues is actually detrimental, somehow 'di ba. Like to say 'You can't voice out your opinions because you're young,' it invalidates our efforts to become aware and our efforts to become educated. If we stand up for what we believe is right then we're entitled to that."
"It's in our basic rights therefore to stand up for what we believe is right."
"We are the youth, which by definition means we are inheriting this country, we are inheriting the world, and so our opinions need to matter."
Her iconic line may be:
"We were raised in the 'Hunger Games,' and 'Harry Potter,' and like all of these films about literally rising up from oppression and like literally rebelling against the system that's oppressive. And I feel like you should be scared, but also loving and accepting but scared."
One of her recent tweets showed the stand of her father for not favoring the Bayanihan 2. Among the reasons stated was despite the huge fund, the target number of tests was not achieved, and PhilHealth was embroiled in corruption charges.
Frankie was among those who opposed the shutdown of ABS-CBN. When the shut down of ABS-CBN was carried out, Regine Velasquez expressed strong words over it. She said that after everything, they will come back better and brighter.
After this, Kim Chiu became viral because of her "Bawal Lumabas." The singer-actress also expressed sympathy towards the younger actress.
ABS-CBN is one of the most popular media and entertainment outfits in the Philippines. It has produced top-caliber stars, well-loved programs, and timely news. Some of the popular shows are “It’s Showtime” and “TV Patrol.”
