FWD is a staunch supporter of Special Olympics for years and she feels that being a BOD is a natural progression of that commitment on a more personal level. Also, she been very active in competitive sports when she was much younger and spending time with the athletes brought back those cherished memories. She looks forward to learning how our athletes thrive, their joys and challenges. Her commitment to Special Olympics Pilipinas is to amplify the voice of the brave and doing her own share of raising awareness towards an inclusive society.

For Roche, inclusion is seeing one’s ability rather than one’s disability. True inclusion means no one gets left behind.
