At a young age of 23, Ms. Emee Lei Albano has already had a broad and extended encounter as a youth leader in a number of leadership positions in several organizations that center on different issues such as leadership training, adolescent reproductive health, HIV and AIDS, entrepreneurship and employment, environmental preservation, substance abuse, among others. Ms. Albano has been working as the Youth Advocate staff of the United Nations Fund (UNFPA) Philippine Country Office since 2007. She is also a member of the UNFPA Regional Technical Working Group on Youth Cluster and was the very first Filipino to represent the region in the UNFPA Global Youth Advisory Panel (2008 and 2009). Her work with the UNFPA had deeply immersed her in the adolescent reproductive health sector as she has helped the country office establish linkages and build partnership with a diverse range of government, non-government and youth organizations. She is also assisting the Country Office in working closely with the Youth Advisory Panel, establishment of Youth Peer Educators Network (YPEER) and greater and meaningful involvement of the Young People Living with HIV. On top of this, she has also served as a youth expert in various capacities as panelist, resource speaker, facilitator and youth organizer for several national and international trainings and workshops. Currently, Emee is taking her Masters Degree in International Studies in Miriam College.
