Paolo Gerardo Roxas, 22, is frequently seen in Mar Roxas’ campaign sorties standing out with his towering height, charming looks and lean physique. But who is he?
He spoke before 2,000 people gathered at the Garden Plaza Events Center in Sta. Rosa, Laguna for the campaign of Mar Roxas, referring to the latter alternately as “Dad” and “Tatay” in his speech, Inquirer.net reports.
Paolo said that his dad told him “that more than the name Roxas, I will inherit from him his integrity”.
“It is explained why in his 22 years in public service, not once has he been accused of corruption”, he adds.
Paolo is the son of Mar Roxas with former beauty queen Maricar Zaldarriaga. The latter represented the Philippines in the 1971 Miss Young International contest in Tokyo.
Paolo is a student at Yale University and he has several extracurricular activities including being a member of Yale Taekwondo club and the Filipino club at Yale, Kasama.
