“Education that teaches people to ask questions” was how Drew Gilpin Hurst, the 28th and the first woman president of the 375-year-old Harvard University, described the kind of education that matters in a recent television interview.
A major delight in being in the US West Coast is catching the daily Charlie Rose interviews held at his signature oak table at a decent hour, rather than close to midnight in Manila. How timely that one day last month, Women’s Month, the guest was Drew Hurst.

Deciphering the Filipino psyche

By Neni Sta. Romana Cruz

Saturday, April 5th, 2014
An unexpected invitation during my continuing personal visit to the East Bay in San Francisco came from Chevron’s Filipino Employees Network (FEN), which wanted me to speak yet again on my pop culture books—“You Know You’re Filipino If…,” “Don’t Take a Bath on a Friday,” and “Ngalang Pinoy,” all published by Tahanan Books. The FEN had warmly received me a number of times before, and this time was no exception.

My very first introduction to the FEN, in 2010, was through Marian Catedral King, a longtime friend from Manila and fellow street parliamentarian, who was then its president. I welcomed Chevron’s interest in celebrating diversity and honoring the Filipino identity, as manifested in the fairly large corps of Filipino-Americans in its northern California offices.
