The Filipino in Me - Insights into Living Heritage

Entry by Mila Bongco Philipzig. Edmonton, Alberta


Artist's Statement

In 2021, I published a bi-lingual children's books inspired by a true story of Antonio Flores who was appointed Alberta's First Advocate for People with Disabilities.

This is a story about an immigrant Filipino boy who becomes a para-athlete on a national level in Canada and competes in the Olympics and world's events for wheelchair racing, kayaking, as well as downhill skiing.

Tony's Wheels comes with Activity Sheets as I do online or virtual author reading in various schools.
