Biography

He was the seventh and youngest child of Governor Juanito R. Remulla and Ditas Catibayan Remulla, was born on 5 September 1970. He has three brothers and sisters one of which is incumbent Representative of the 3rd District of Cavite, Jesus Crispin "Boying" Remulla. Gilbert spent his childhood in Bel-Air, Makati and Imus, Cavite.

Education

He spent his elementary years in De La Salle University Grade School, high school in the Ateneo de Manila High School and went to the University of the Philippines in Diliman for his college education. As an undergraduate in UP, Gilbert mixed academic excellence with worthwhile extra-curricular activities. He was National President of AISEC, and an active member of the Upsilon Sigma Phi Fraternity.

After obtaining a degree in Broadcast Communication in 1993, Gilbert went on to fulfill his dream of becoming a broadcast journalist when he joined ABS-CBN as part of its news team. Starting as a production assistant, Gilbert experienced the trying times of being a junior employee. Due to his talent and perseverance, Gilbert became a reporter and was easily known as the familiar face in the morning and evening news.

Notwithstanding his budding career as a broadcast journalist, he pursued the opportunity for further studies. In 1997, Gilbert took up his MA International Affairs with concentration in International Media and Communications at the Columbia University in New York City. His experience in the Ivy League school gave him the rare opportunity to work for CNN and the United Nations.

Career

Carrying the Remulla name, the clamor for public service was just pressing. Gilbert ran in the Congressional elections of May 2001 for the 2nd District of Cavite. He, being considered as a political neophyte, was equipped with nothing but the passion to serve and to prove that there is more to him as a public servant than just being a Remulla in name. And with a convincing win against his veteran rivals, the people of the 2nd District of Cavite has given him the opportunity to serve them.

Being one of the youngest members of Congress, the time he has spent in office has been marked by comments about his relative youth in comparison to majority of the members of Congress. However, Gilbert has long proven that there is no such thing as inexperience in genuine public service. His legislative portfolio shows commendable legislation such as Republic Act 9165, or the Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002, and Republic Act 9287, or the Act Increasing the Penalty for the Illegal Numbers Game. He had a number of bills which are pending in Congress, which include House Bill No. 185 seeking the abolition of the Sangguniang Kabataan and replacing it with a youth representative; House Bill No. 2452 which seeks to lower the cost of cellular phone usage and House Bill No. 5310 which aims at minimizing the use of plastic bags and plastic utensils that damages the environment.

Other than his advocacies for the people of the 2nd District of Cavite, he is also a strong advocate for population management. He continuously works with organizations in the country and across the world to strengthen awareness and to expand opportunity for development through proper population education. He firmly believes that there is a compelling need to bring down the rate of population growth to ensure sustainability and to secure the well-being of the future generation.

Personal Life

Apart from giving him a better perspective in his chosen field, it was in New York City where Gilbert found his better half, Georgia Isabel Roa. It was no surprise to everyone when the two decided to tie the knot in Catholic rites in 2000. Their marriage has been blessed with two lovely daughters, Roxanne Margarita, 5 years old, and Rocio Isabel, 2 years old.

Just like any other man, he also knows how to have a good time. He enjoys spending time with his family and friends, loves playing basketball, sings ballads and has gotten into boxing lately.
