The Filipino as a race with distinct identity and multifaceted yet distinguished culture has always been esteemed and loved by other countries. But as a nation which follows modernization and progression, it is only expected that changes and development may occur in the process. It is then only vital to “re-vision” that identity to keep track of who the Filipinos are – yesterday, today and tomorrow.
