DiverCHIty Run: Seeing the "Extra" in the Ordinary

What Chinoys are currently relishing is having the best of both worlds! Yup, that would include me. I have my AngKong and I also studied in Chinese schools (hindi lang halata- still Chinese carabao magsalita, hehe!)

By "Chinoy", it might probably include you too and most other Pinoys, even unknowingly, since the Philippines is a melting pot of different nations. Having as ancestor an immigrant from the country touted the Sleeping Giant is not unlikely.

Picking up positive traits from both races as Chinese and as a Filipino forms a unique quality that does not just conform to simply being movers or doers but a prominent figure in the community.
Having been raised in a diverse country, Chinoys are resilient to disruption and are not afraid to go out of their comfort zones on their quest for excellence.

Given these, the campaign DiverCHIty is launched for all proud Chinoys in line with Chinoy TV’s 8th year anniversary acting as a pillar in the Chinese-Filipino community. The campaign aims to gather individuals/groups who share the same cause of promoting diversity, individuality and unity amongst the Chinese-Filipino Community.
