Yesterday, I found myself in a sea of teenagers and though I couldn't for the life of me understand why they kept screaming at the different teen stars that were on stage, I could understand the zeal and zest of the youth and why Unilever saw the potential in them and in launching the biggest Teen event of the year, TeenWeekPH2014.
There were a lot of booths present at the TeenWeekPH fair. Each booth represented something for the teens. Every booth was geared towards educating and motivating teens on the importance of self-esteem, confidence, friendships and hygiene habits.
#TeenWeek Year 1 was launched in 2013. This year's event was a lot bigger and better. They also had the Teen Ambassadors present to inspire all of the students from different schools who attended the event.
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, KryzUy, LaureenUy, Tricia Gosingtian, Nicole Andersson, Patricia Prieto, VernieceEnciso, along with the 2014 winners of BinibiningPilipinas, Ms. Tourism, Parul Shah, Ms. International, Bianca Guidotti, Ms. Supranational, Yvethe Santiago, Ms. Intercontinental, Kris Janson, and Ms. Universe, MJ Lastimosa. PBB Stars, Axel Torres, Vikki Rushton, Fourth and Fifth Pagotan, Manolo Pedrosa, and Marie Stellar also took part in the day’s exciting activities!
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.
Thank you Unilever for thinking of these kind of activities. I wish that I had the same activities back when I was in college but I'm happy to know that my little sister and my son will have something like this to look forward to in their future.
