Project Description: "Our project talks about a leader, specifically, here in the Philippines. We focused on one of the best exemplar of being an ideal leader who is the former President of the Philippines, Corazon Aquino simply known as “Cory”. She was the 11th President of the Philippines and the first woman to hold the office in Philippine history and is best remembered for leading the 1986 People Power Revolution. She is considered an icon of democracy.She is also the very first woman leader who became an inspiration for the start of other countries to have woman leaders. During her presidency, she got many problems and threats on military elements and further on numerous disasters and severe power shortages also the ending of the presence of the United States, but still, she have done her best in bringing back democracy, restoring investor confidence in the economy and enacting legal and constitutional reforms. The purpose of this project is to inspire others to be like the former President of the Philippines Cory Aquino. A leader who is identified with honor, integrity, and dignity; that can inverse the political system that are corrupted and often prejudicial. One who will be responsible for a change in this oppressive political system that is necessary to ensure a bright future, and who can set aside her personal needs and gains and denounces oppression and corruption for the nation to prosper. One who listens to the needs of its people and acts accordingly to address their problems. Rarely, that we find this kind of leader who sparks hope and ignites inspiration. The former President Cory Aquino is truly the best example of a great leader. "
