"When I first started out blogging, I feared no one will notice me. My posts only get two to three likes and it’s as if no one actually cares. I did whatever I can to improve my blog and after a while, my efforts paid off. Messages of appreciation arrived in my inbox often and I gained a handful of followers. Aside from those, boosting my confidence gave me the chance to meet and befriend other bloggers as well." —Guen De Mesa, 16, Student / Blogger

"At the age of 14, I started my modeling career after being discovered in a workshop called Trumpets Playshop. During the 2011 Philippine Fashion Week, I was given the opportunity to walk on the runway even if I didn't have any experience at walking for the big names in the industry. The worst part was that I didn't even have the confidence to face numerous people who are going to be watching! It was an opportunity that I didn’t want to miss so I gathered whatever confidence I had and accepted the offer anyway. To my surprise, more and more blessings came my way; I was able to walk for different shows, work with different models and for various designers, and even participate in Project Runway Philippines Season 3. After every show, I noticed that I gain a little more courage, strength, and confidence. So every time I get a project, I remind myself that I could do it and forget all about what frightens me. Here I am now living life to the fullest by turning my can'ts into cans." —Jaja Bautista, 17, Student / Model
