Proud Filipinos congratulate former VP Leni Robredo for being chosen as Harvard Hauser Leader

She and other Hauser Leaders will “engage with students, faculty, alumni, & the wider Harvard community during our stint on campus.”

Former vice president Leni Robredo was more than grateful after the Harvard Kennedy School Center for Public Leadership named her a fellow for the Fall 2022 semester.

In the September 1 announcement, the academic institution said Robredo got selected as one of five Hauser Leaders for turning the Office of the Vice President into an advocacy-centered one from just a ceremonial office.

During her term, Robredo established Angat Buhay—a flagship poverty alleviation program.

“At a time when many challenges stem from leadership shortcomings, these Hauser Leaders bring to campus living examples of principled and effective public leadership,” said Deval Patrick, codirector for the Center for Public Leadership.

Robredo is “thrilled & humbled to be given this space to share my advocacies & experiences, alongside a roster of distinguished leaders from various fields.”

She and other Hauser Leaders will “engage with students, faculty, alumni, & the wider Harvard community during our stint on campus.”

Robredo’s followers and admirers congratulated her for being recognized internationally despite not being in office anymore.

Failed senatorial candidate Chel Diokno praised Robredo for making Filipinos proud.

Former senator Leila de Lima joined in on congratulating Robredo.

Robredo’s recent achievement did nothing, however, to stave off trolls from attacking her character. One said that people should “temporarily refrain” from calling her “Madumb” as it may alert the Harvard higher-ups and remove her from one of the chosen Hauser Leaders.

Some said she shouldn’t have been invited in the first place due to her history of “lying” and other questionable behaviors as a public servant.


Less than a week ago, a netizen claimed that Robredo arrived at the DSWD main office unannounced which was proven false.
