We started this feature mainly to come up with role models for Fil-Americans specially to our youth. We've been called an invisible minority because we tried to assimilate to the American main stream as quickly as we can. We're hoping that by this feature, we can showcase that Fil-Ams too are as successful as other minorities and capable of achieving more.
Fil-Am US Army Generals
Two highest ranking Filipino Americans in the US Army were recently promoted, they are Army Maj. Gen. Edward Soriano who has been nominated for appointment to the rank of lieutenant general (3 stars) and assignment as commanding general, I Corps and Fort Lewis, Washington. And Army Brig. Gen. Antonio M. Taguba who has been nominated for appointment to the rank of major general (2 stars). Gen. Taguba is to be reassigned as director of management and vice director of the Army Staff, Washington, D.C.
Martial Arts Expert

Thinking of going back home and work there, think twice, the salary scale might be a big factor to consider. Let's take for example, if you're a systems engineer in the US making $5000 plus, in Asia (as per the survey), particularly the Philippines, you'll be making on average US$547 - roughly 10% of your US salary.

future, we must know
A majority of Filipinos everywhere are wondering what is this claim is all about. The Philippine history books, Malaysian's probably too, have not mentioned about the Philippines' stake on the northern part of the island of Borneo. On the other hand, the Malaysians maybe furious that there are a lot of attention now being focused to that part of the Malaysian federation to which they believe was theirs since the British handed the territory in 1963.
The Philippines have 3 Mses. International and 2 Mses. Universe to made us all proud of. The likes of Margie Moran and Gloria Diaz as Mses.Universe, Gemma Cruz, Aurora Pijuan and Melanie Marquez, the Mses. International. And some beauty queens married Filipinos like Armi Helena Kuusela (Miss Finland)- Hilario, Miss Universe 1952 who is married to a businessman and a Miss Australia married to a Filipino actor and comedian. Not to mention, Miss International 1960 Stella Marquez Zawadzky (Miss Colombia) - Araneta who is married to a scion of the Araneta family and the organizer of the Miss International in the Philippines. Indeed the Philippines is home to a lot of beautiful women. As a race, we have a long tradition in winning beauty contests, the Filipino Americans can be credited to have a several beauty title holders of their own. Aside from Miss Baraquio, the Miss Teen USA for 1998 is a Filipino American from South Carolina, Vanessa Minnillo.
