Philippine Consulate General, NYC

On February 5, 2017, the Philippine Consulate General in New York City, invited media outlets and 175 distinguished Filipino guests to include the honorable Philippine Senator, Alan Peter Cayetano, to an intimate “Meet and Greet” with rising NBA star Jordan Clarkson.

The event was created to bridge the gap between Jordan and his growing Filipino contingent of fans and their communities.

During the event, he participated in a question and answer session with a group of reporters on hand to provide exclusive insight into his persona. He addressed the enormous responsibility of being a “role model” and a ”beacon of light” for the Philippines, who bear witness to his every accomplishment with pride.

He also spoke directly to those who dream of following in his footsteps by sharing advice on how to prepare themselves to achieve their goals. It was truly a remarkable and humbling day in the life of Jordan Clarkson!
