Follow Me on YouTube and Learn What It’s Like to Live as a Filipino in the USA

I’ve had my YouTube channel for a couple of years now. But I have not really uploaded much content there.

That has changed!

Finally, I mustered enough courage to relaunch my YouTube channel. The past few weeks, I uploaded several videos to show what it is like to live as a Filipino in the United States of America.

How to Subscribe to Podcasts

Podcasts are an awesome way to learn and be entertained. They could keep you company on a long drive, or when you’re stuck in traffic.
