"It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideals." ~Emma Watson
"It provides a much-needed arena for informed and purposeful exchange on relevant issues. The third out of the seven fundamental human needs is the need to belong or connection. It comes after subsistence and security; and growth and understanding Inclusivity addresses and fulfills that need. How do we achieve it? We temper if not altogether do a way with discrimination. How do we go about it? We start with intelligent discourse. This is why and how Notables at AIM came to be. We are going to talk about inclusivity in the work place for increased productivity; in our institutions and industries for growth, and in our communities for general wellbeing. Inclusivity is a critical yet complicated humanitarian issue. Let's start engaging with it." ~Marc Ablaza, MBM '95 Natch Representative

“For me, being a mom has changed the way I make decisions. There’s this concern that some products might be made with a lot of chemicals that aren’t going to be helpful for your child’s development-- there’s always that fear. We don’t always go organic but when we have the chance to do so and it’s available, we do it. Choosing organic food gives me peace of mind knowing that whatever we ate, drank or put in our body was straight from the ground and has no chemicals.” ~Andi Manzano-Reyes
“Jessica is a natural short story writer, and I don’t know anyone else in the Philippines writing in English who does it as well as she does. The fact that she’s a Filipina couldn’t matter less. She would be recognised anywhere on earth that good English is read. But of course in this fatuous world the unmerited hegemony of “English” literature (including of course American, Canadian, Australian, etc. etc.) reminds us that it still fancies itself as the arbiter of the Real Thing. But plenty of us round-eyes know that’s baloney, and JZ provides us with ammunition to stand up in public and say so.” ~James Hamilton-Paterson, Whitbread Award-winning author of Gerontius, Playing With Water, Seven-Tenths, Ghosts of Manila, and the bestselling Cooking With Fernet Branca and Empire of the Clouds
