Welcome to the Vanguard Overseas section! To reach out to the wider UP Vanguard, Inc. membership especially those already based overseas, we will be featuring profiles of our brods and their friends and families to give us a glimpse of their lives and careers abroad. This section will also give UPVI members, both seasoned and newly-minted alike, a platform to learn about the challenges and opportunities waiting in other parts of the world.
