Keesa Ocampo (U.S. FWN100™ '11) is the Corporate Affairs officer for the international media conglomerate, ABS-CBN International. Ocampo, a young philanthropist and community advocate, was born in California and raised in Manila.

Her community involvement and advocacy began as an active stakeholder of numerous organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area like the National Association for Asian American Professionals, Asian Heritage Month Committee for the City of San Francisco, Asian Pacific Fund, the Glide Legacy Committee and the San Francisco-Manila Sister City Committee. Her wide span of networks and persistent work to build bridges resulted in co-founding the progressive organization, Citizen Hope, which engages in community and civic service projects.

Ocampo's commitment was catapulted by the series of natural disasters in 2009 as she began galvanizing teams across organizations and communities to begin disaster relief - efforts that were recognized for their vast coverage, speed and success. This pushed her advocacy to span across the Pacific, through her organization, Bay Area Benefit, which serves the international community through "guerilla philanthropy," towards equality and justice. In 2010, she was honored for her humanitarian work with a Presidential Citation from Her Excellency Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, former President of the Republic of the Philippines.

Ocampo currently lives in the City of San Mateo and has been a member of the San Mateo Commission on the Status of Women since 2011.
