ILOCOS NORTE—All the way from Waipahu in Hawaii, 21-year-old Reschi Karla Ramo takes a vacation in Barangay Calioet, Libong, Bacarra yearly, where she was born and grew up until her family migrated to the United States in 2011.

Her homecoming this year is filled with more excitement after she brought home a very special “pasalubong” that can’t be compared with anything that came with the balikbayan box.

In 2015, Reschi was awarded a scholarship under the Coca Cola New Century Scholarship grant while studying at Leeward Community College. Leeward CC is part of the UH System. Please click this Link for more details.
