#TeenWeekPH 2015 culminates in First #TeenWeekPH Fair

On Sept. 26 at the SMX in SM Aura, the Manila and Luzon legs of #TeenWeekPH culminated in the very first #TeenWeekPH Fair.

On its third year, #TeenWeekPH returned with a bigger teen agenda: to give teens from a total of 125 public and private schools across Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao the confidence to shape their future. Through a series of interactive personality development workshops over five days, #TeenWeekPH taught students the value of good hygiene and how it plays a positive role in building confidence.

Tailored to teen-relevant themes per day, #MoveUpMonday tackled teen life and goal setting, while #TransformTuesday taught teens to care for their skin with Pond’s and Master. #WorkItWednesday encouraged students to build their talents and confidence, with challenges from Rexona. #ThinkBigThursday focused on dreams and ambitions, with untangling limitless possibilities and nothing to hide workshops from Cream Silk and CLEAR. And on #FutureFriday, students learned the importance of building lasting friendships and relationships in their teenage years.

Along with the daily edutainment modules, a series of videos that tackle different aspects of teen life, Teen Talks were given by informed and successful young men and women on topics such as self-esteem, talent and confidence, dreams and ambitions. Speakers included basketball player and entrepreneur Chris Tiu, multi-awarded Filipina volleyball player Alyssa Valdez, and actor and dancer Enrique Gil, among others.

To cap off the week-long festivities, the #TeenWeekPH Fair was co-created by teens and for teens, giving them the opportunity to showcase and test their confidence. Participants showed off what they learned during a whole day of fun activities, booths and performances by special guests. Students showcased their artistic side in the Quotefie booth, while new friendships were struck at the Instafriends Booth.
