Apl.de.Ap launched his new advocacy of giving scholarships to creative Filipino students.

Apl worked along with Thames International School, British School International and the Department of Trade and Industry in giving scholarships.

“I’m an advocate for the creative industry because I am a direct product of one. I’m one of the lucky ones who was given an opportunity and you know, strive in the creative industry, from the music industry, from the Black Eyed Peas,” said Apl.

The Filipino-American rapper and member of the band, Black Eyed Peas said that as he grew up in Pampanga with dreams, he wished that he can help his fellow Filipinos by giving them free education.

Apl wants to pay forward and also try to help grow the creative industry in the Philippines, knowing that Filipinos are recognized as one of the creative people in the world.

There are currently twenty scholars studying at Thames International School.
