Manolo's View
Part 3

Manolo Quezon describes an ordinary day in his life. He also talks about his name and how, despite his background, he managed to shape his own identity.

“More and more – and I am very grateful for this – I am having the chance to make my own name and my own reputation, for better or worse," he says. "The name is never a hindrance. It is not as big a liability as I thought it was when I was a crazy teenager.”
