Empowering Future-Ready Teens | TeenWeekPH 2014

Aristotle once said that good habits formed at youth make all the difference. I certainly agree with this philosopher as I also believe that teens, who are currently having their own physical, emotional, and mental battle, can make the future better once they are educated and trained well. Last Friday, I attended #TeenWeekPH 2014 at SMX Convention Center Hall 2 in SM Aura Premier and was able to witness the joy and power of being a teen and how reminiscent it was to my teenage years. Now on its second year, it delivered its promises to be even bigger and more exciting as it powers up future-ready teens to 250 schools across the Philippines.

This movement was created to empower Filipino teens to aim high and be future-ready by educating and motivating them on the value of hygiene and personal care, self-esteem, confidence, and friendship. It was first launched last 2013 and since then it became the biggest teen event of the year.

When I arrived at the venue, I immediately felt a sudden change of vibe – it felt like I was teleported a few years back when the world was simply bright, colourful, and very much energetic. Being in my early 20s now, I wasn’t that far gone, but there’s really something so optimistic, lively, and innocent in being a teen.

Because she is very popular among the teens, Yeng Constantino graced the event with her well-known songs. The young audience squealed and screamed their admiration as they sang along with their pink-haired idol.

The entire place was filled by several booths for the #TeenWeekPH fair. Each booth represents an inspirational day of the week and has activities for the teens. To start, #MoveUpMonday aims to produce proud Filipino teens who underwent and survived the challenges in transforming into an adolescent. #TransformTuesday is basically for beauty and self-esteem while #WorkItWednesday is on confidence building and talent honing.

Catch the #TeenWeekPH movement in these dates!

Truly, the teen spirit is a strong force that when mold in the right way could create confident, responsible, and skilled citizens. By educating young people to have proper habits for their success, #TeenWeekPH is seen effectively programming Filipino youth development. I highly commend this movement which believes in Dr. Jose Rizal’s word that the youth is the hope of our future. It is just right that we must invest in them!

  1. TeenweekPh is so inspiring. I’ve been following their social media accounts even if I can’t attend with the actual event.
    Being a teen, probably, was the best part of being a human. Haha.

    GigLove

  2. Events which inspire and empower and excellent and what more when they’re aimed at teens. I remember having sooo much more energy, time and zest when I was that age… so yes, what a wonderful event to bring out their best.

  3. If I could go back, I would! When I was a teen, I was just focused with school, family and friends. It was a rough time then.

    I haven’t been honing my passions. I ended up being an engineer who struggles to write on her free time. I’m just working for my dreams now.

    So, you, girl. Work for your passions ha! Enjoy your teenage years!

  4. Gone our my teen years! hahaha!:)) But I can’t help but love this event. Too bad I didn’t have the time to go to it. 🙁 Sayang! But looks really fun and I like that it’s an inspirational event for teens. 🙂

  5. I absolutely miss being a teen! I’m about to hit the big 3-0 next year and not sure about how I feel – I guess I’m excited and terrified haha. Perhaps one of the best moments of being a youth was being able to travel wherever I would want to go, now, that’s kind of tough haha especially with a 3 year old.

Share your thoughts, I would love to read them!
