Academic Background: Bachelor of Arts Humanities, University of Asia and Pacific, Manila, 2016
Anne Mimille Guzman worked as the International Director of Operations of the World Youth Alliance (WYA) for over 4 years in New York City.
As a global non-profit that has a membership of over one million young people, WYA is an accredited ECOSOC organization in the United Nations. Anne worked directly with the WYA President and Founder in developing annual strategies in the areas of finance, program development, management, and communication.
She managed the operational matters of over six regional offices around the world. She also had a primary role in leading the research, development, and implementation of their premier educational programs such as the Human Dignity Curriculum and Certified Training Program. Both have been adopted worldwide by partner countries as program responses to counter policies against human dignity.
Prior to her position, she published a paper as an Asia Pacific representative to the CIAM-WYA Youth Synod Colloquium held in Rome, Italy. She was also a scholar alumna of the 2012 Study of the U.S. Institute for Student Leaders on “New Media in Journalism” and a Global Changemaker under the British Council. She became a published author and illustrator at the age of 16 through her book, “Clara’s Coffee and Other Tales”. This is the 2nd Filipino book ever to be translated into braille (the first being National Hero Jose Rizal’s Noli Me Tangere).
She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Humanities in the University of Asia and Pacific in Manila, Philippines in 2016. Since 2003, she has been immersed in the culture of giving through her family’s initiative to serve the most vulnerable through storytelling, art and play therapy, and development/medical projects.
