GANDANG PINOY: Stories of Pinoy Determination and Impact
Magaling. Mahusay. Maipagmamalaki sa mundo. ‘Yan ang Gandang Pinoy.
Starting from scratch can often be a challenge, but we Filipinos stand strong and determined through thick and thin. Gandang Pinoy pushes us to celebrate ourselves, and be confident of our many different stories no matter where we come from, showing the impact Filipinos can have on the world.
Come along with us and learn more about the amazing humble beginnings of Needan Francisco, a Pinay entrepreneur, and AJ Villar, a Pinay advocate for children’s learning, as they find their purpose and show the world what makes them shine.
From helping her mother bake cakes to starting her own business, Needan Francisco shines with confidence as she strives to learn new things to boost her entrepreneurial skills everyday.
Needan recalls taking a chance on becoming an online seller, trusting herself and how she enjoyed managing her own business. Although she started with little to no experience, Needan powered through and did her best to learn more strategies to help her with online selling.
Running a business will always have its ups and downs, but Needan remains proud of her dedication to keep going, because the joy from each order she receives is a life-changing achievement for something she’s built on her own.
For the sake of building a brighter future, AJ Villar has made a mark in Philippine education with the policies she’s made that have positively affected over 28 million learners, and over a million teachers and employees alike.
Though the building blocks for the future generations to come were shaped by AJ’s government policies, it wasn’t an easy task to create such a lasting impact on the Philippine educational system. AJ recalls some days filled with doubt on whether her actions were actually meaningful enough.
Yet through all the struggles and doubt, AJ stands with pride as she realizes her ideas and enthusiasm had a purpose in the impact her policies have made on the many young learners of today and the many more to come.
Beginning is always the hardest step forward, but Filipinos remain determined through rain or shine. With purposefulness and determination, Filipinos will always find their way towards brighter futures and bigger opportunities.
