Being a teenager is the most exciting and most interesting period of one’s life. It is also a turning point where one is in the process of developing every aspect of themselves.
Last Friday, September 26, 2014 I was invited to attend TEENWEEKPH 2014 at SMX convention center hall 2 in SM Aura Premier. This event aims to educate, support and motivate Filipino teens in building their confidence, self-esteem, awareness in hygiene habits and being the best that they can be.
Teen week promises to bring more and even bigger surprises to empower future-ready teens in 250 schools across the nation.
Key youth leaders and teen influencers were also in attendance during the launch to help inspire teens. Some of them include Elmo Magalona, Coleen Garcia, James and Phil Younghusband, Kryz Uy, Laureen Uy, Tricia Gosingtian, Nicole Andersson, Patricia Prieto, Verniece Enciso, along with the 2014 winners of Binibining Pilipinas, Ms. Tourism, Parul Shah, Ms. International, Bianca Guidotti, Ms. Supranational,Yvethe Guidotti, Ms. Intercontinental, Kris Janson, and Ms. Universe, MJ Lastimosa. PBB Stars, Axel Torres, Vickie Rushton, Fourth and Fifth Pagotan, Manolo Pedrosa, and Marie Stellar also took part in the day’s exciting activities!
To make the event more enjoyable, the place was filled with booths and activity areas where everyone were encouraged to participate. Makes me think of school fair 🙂
To start off the week,
#MoveUpMonday will focus on the different physical and emotional changes that adolescence brings, and ultimately get teens to declare why they are proud Pinoy Teens.
#TransformTuesday touches on beauty and self-esteem.
#WorkItWednesday is dedicated to showing teens how to build confidence and hone their talents so that they can use it for their future, while
#ThinkBigThursday will be on pursuing their passions, dreaming big and chasing their dreams. Lastly,
#FutureFriday will be about forging lasting friendships and building relationships, proving that the bonds developed during the teenage years can last a lifetime.
To further develop the reach and impact of #TeenWeekPH, educational modules, co-created in 2013 with DepEd consultants and Teen Experts, will be deployed to each of the participating schools and will also include a five-episode series that tackles different teen topics. These videos will be shown in schools, along with a simultaneous airing on Myx from September 29-October 3, thereby reaching more teens all over the Philippines.
In partnership with the Department of Education, Unilever headed this campaign with their leading brands Pond’s, Cream Silk and Rexona, along with the participation of their brands such as Clear, Close Up, and Master.
