Kyle Jennermann’s love of the Filipino culture is truly immeasurable. He has been spreading smiles to the Filipino people especially to Kagay-anons. He has been into many activities that are uniquely Filipino like dancing budots, drinking tuba, driving trisikad, and hosting a fiesta. And recently, his story has already reached national television networks and international websites.
The story of Kyle was shown in ABS-CBN News programs like Bandila, aired in GMA News TV Channel 11, and was featured at yahoo.com. But as Kyle has emphasized, his story is not about him. It’s about the inspiring traits of Filipinos. It’s about Cagayan de Oro and Mindanao, the beauty and wonders of this island often stereotyped as a war zone. Kyle has showcased Filipino hospitality. He considers the Philippines and the city of Cagayan de Oro not just his favorite place in the world but his home. Everyday, he has inspiring stories to tell at his website becomingfilipino.com and BecomingFilipino Facebook Page.
There are 7,107 islands in the Philippines. But there are more than 7, 107 reasons why we should be thankful and celebrate that we are Filipinos. And that’s what Kyle Jennermann’s story is all about… a Canadian by Citizenship but a Filipino by heart.
