Meet ten outstanding students of the Philippines – selected for the TOSP-NCR 2012 awards. They are accomplished and have their sights set on changing their nation for the better. This year’s theme is “Making the mission of Nation-Building Trend” – focusing on technology and social media. See what it was like behind the scenes of the difficult selection process and how one Rappler judge Natashya Gutierrez, just a little older than the students, tried to understand why the students cried and how those tears reinvigorated her own hope for the future.
Read about the winners and their tears on Rappler.
