Amidst the proliferation of fake news attempting to rewrite history, Filipino internet artist Chi Amisola took a stand. In 2016, she founded Developh, a youth-led non-profit community dedicated to utilizing technology as a tool for liberation, not oppression.

Her work has earned international acclaim. Major publications such as The New Yorker and Frieze have featured her work. Furthermore, her work has been displayed in prominent cities around the world, including Berlin, London, San Francisco, Toronto, and the Philippines.

Recently, she launched the Ang Bantayog project, a website commemorating the victims of human rights abuses during the Martial Law era under former president Ferdinand Marcos in the 1970s.

5. Amanda Cua

Currently based in Brussels and serving as a permanent house artist at the Viernulvier Arts Center in Belgium, this Filipino artist has recently received an invitation to the 60th Venice Biennale in 2024.

As a versatile artist at 28, they seamlessly blend dance, music, and theater in captivating live performances. Moreover, their work explores themes of cultural identity, transmigration, and queer representation.

In addition, their work has been featured in publications like L’Officiel and ArtReview. Furthermore, they have performed internationally, including at the ANTI-Contemporary Art Festival in Finland, the TONO Festival in Mexico, and the HAU Hebbel am Ufer in Berlin.

Simplifying and reducing the cost of global money transfers using cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, the 29-year-old entrepreneur founded Parallax, a Manila-based cross-border payment startup.

Having experienced the challenges of receiving payments as a freelancer, Reyes launched the startup in 2023, initially targeting users in the Philippines. However, Parallax now serves customers in over 150 countries. In September, the company secured $4.5 million in seed funding, led by Dragonfly Capital.

Truly, in this era, Filipino youth are proving themselves capable of extraordinary feats. With technology as ally, they overcome challenges and break barriers on the world stage. They inspire others to realize their potential and pursue aspirations with determination.
