- Advertisment -

World-renowned Filipino fashion icon Michael Cinco emerged as one of the 2021 Dakilang Bayani Awardees, the highest and most prestigious award given to overseas Filipinos by the office of the Philippine Consulate in Dubai and the Northern Emirates. 

He was chosen due to his ‘selfless commitment to serve the expat community and whose global contribution elevates the collective pride of the Filipinos.’ 

Philippine Consul General Paul Raymund Cortes appointed Dr. Rommel Sergio from Abu Dhabi School of Management, Dr. Rex Bacarra, campus academic head and director for administrative services at Southville-RAK, Dr. Ben Lebig Jr., and Dr. Nino Decenorio of Bath Spa University to spearhead the selection process of Dakilang Bayani Award. 

Cinco is the second Filipino from Samar province to receive such an award. Dr. Bacarra was the first Samareño to be honored with the award in 2017, and has been continually striving to promote education globally. 

Members of the selection committee were Consul General Cortes, Vice Consul Aleah Gica, Dr. Sergio, Dr. Bacarra, Dr. Lebig, Dr. Decenorio, and Dr. Yasmin Balajadia-Cortes. 

According to Dr. Bacarra, Cinco, who is also a presidential awardee, ‘is one of the exemplary Filipinos chosen this year for his magnanimous contributions to the world of fashion, the elevation of Filipino identity, and for serving as an inspiration to generations of Filipinos.’
