|Check out my board! 🙂|
Here are some stuff I pinned on my board recently. I pinned them from different websites and accounts. 🙂
A week ago, my sorority sis sent me a poem that she stumbled upon that night. She knew I was feeling down, and that this would somehow make me feel better. She was right.
I just thought It’d be nice to share it with you, too.
We are more than our heartaches.
We are strong, and in time, we will not just get by
— we will grow and blossom and love again.

Here’s a super quick interview with young, brilliant entrepreneur sisters, Cheenee and Cookie 🙂
H: What is Cheenee and Cookie passionate about?
C &C Salon: Together, as sisters, we have a passion to make others feel beautiful inside and out. Whether through foot spas or nail cleaning/design, we enjoy giving people the pampering they deserve.
H: What inspired you to open C& C Salon?
C& C Salon: BGC is a very busy area. Many people are always at work and in a rush. We were inspired to start C&C because we wanted to create a place for people to relax in the midst of their busy schedule. It is their home away from home. Also, we wanted to start our own business at a young age.
H: What can people expect from C&C Salon?
C&C Salon: People can expect to be surrounded by a shabby chic environment that helps you relax as if you were at home. C&C teaches our team of aestheticians to help you feel the value you have. We call you “guests”, not “customers”.
H: What motto does Cheenee and Cookie live by?
C&C: Our two main mottos are “You deserve it.”, and “If you don’t treat yourself, you cheat yourself.”

Youth empowerment is something I will always be in support of, and that is why it was an honor to have witnessed the launch of CAMP COURAGE, a campaign whose advocacy I believed in.
Did you know that 75% of girls ages 13-17 want to feel accepted yet are afraid of being judged? Dyahe, hiya, and kaba are brought about by many changes that young Filipinas encounter, both socially and physically.
While the teenage years signal for a more promising phase in an individual’s life, many miss to seize the opportunities in front of them due to their insecurities and the lack of knowledge to empower them. These feelings become even more amplified with the changes that they start to experience in their own bodies, such as breakouts, oiliness, wetness down there, and monthly periods.
In its desire to understand and address the needs of Filipina teens, Johnson and Johnson Philippines came up with CAMP COURAGE.

What is CAMP COURAGE?
It is a movement and an advocacy that empowers today’s Filipina teens to celebrate their teenage years and to realize their full potentials.
Camp Courage will go around the Philippines to reach out to 400,000 Filipina teens in 500 schools nationwide. It will conduct workshops and activities that will help girls understand their bodies even better, know the right things to do in any situation, and find opportunities where they can enhance their talents and skills even more.
By September 2015, www.ourcampcourage.ph will be launched where teens can support each other by sharing stories that can motivate them to seize the moment.
