Around this time last year, David Licauco talked about his life amid the big halt brought by the pandemic turning into a an opportune time to revisit his studies and his proclivity for business, resulting to two new ventures that include an online health and wellness hub, and a comfort food delivery service.

David Licauco fronts the first of The Breakthrough Issue. Enjoy the read!
