MANILA, Philippines — The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) has appointed Michelle Nikki Junia, an early childhood educator, as interim president.
Junia was elected by the CPC board of directors on August 16.
“I am ready to channel all of my energy and deep passion for the arts and arts education into playing a key role in delivering their programs,” Junia said in a statement.
Junia said her experience as the center’s former immediate vice-president and head of its artistic affairs committee puts her “in a unique position to see the greatest heights that can be reached even more.”
Junia is also committed to continuing CCP’s projects, including the “Kanto Kultura” program, a flagship project of the center that seeks to encourage Filipinos to create artistic content by showcasing their innovation and creativity.
Junia replaced Margie Moran-Floirendo, Miss Universe 1973, who now serves as the CCP’s acting co-vice president alongside Lorna Kapunan.
