About this Event

The Filipino Young Professionals of Washington DC (FYP-DC) invite you to attend our 2019 Annual Conference on September 28, 2019.

This year's theme is “Tagumpay Natin” (Our Success) and we carefully curated this conference to provide you with invaluable information to jumpstart your pathway to personal and professional success. The conference will feature speakers and workshops focusing on professional development, Filipino American identity, and more.

The stories provided by current and previous generations of successful Filipinos will pave the way to success not only for these individuals, but the Filipino community as a whole. Our panels include Filipino-Americans in Government and Military, Filipino-American Resiliency and Advocacy, Self-Branding and Entrepreneurship, and "Two Sides of the Same Experience: A History of Filipinos in DC."

The Keynote Speaker for the 2019 Annual Leadership Conference is Malaka Gharib, who is the author of the graphic Memoir titled, "I was their American Dream." Born to a Filipina mother and an Egyptian father, Malaka's book is a heartfelt tribute to immigrant families who have invested their future in the promise of the American dream.

A graduate of Syracuse University, Malaka is currently a journalist at NPR in Washington, D.C. where she reports about global health and development. In addition, she is the founder of the Runcible Spoon food zine as well as the co-founder of the DC Art Book Fair. In her free time, Malaka loves making mini zines, doodling, and leaving nice messages for people on the bus. Don't miss out! We hope to see you there.

We are so excited to have you in this year's leadership conference!
