Education has been taken for granted by many especially by the privileged. With the notion that a degree is useless, they skip school and try their hands on anything that let them earn money. Some thinks that it can not prepare them for life. There is pressure on each person to go to school and get a degree. The same goes for people who can't afford tuition fees. They rather help out their parents to get by each day and nix the idea of getting to school.

 The reality that most are not aware of is that the importance of education goes beyond getting a job or being looked up by the society. In addition, to get complete education doesn't only mean one can read or write but also to identify right from wrong and understand the world around him. Ultimately, one of things education provides is the capability to interpret things.

Certain companies such as Viviamo! Inc., makers of the Belle de Jour Power Planner and Navi: Your Life Navigator Journal believes that education empowers the future generation.

of Calligraphy. Bellas were provided with starter brush pens and worksheets where they tried
their hand in calligraphy. Patricia Mirasol, on the other hand, stressed the importance of
changing one’s mindset to achieve his/her health and fitness goals.

Business and fitness enthusiast Carla Piscoso related how she once battled with insecurities and
low self-esteem back then. She then encouraged Bellas that in order to feel confident about
how they look and feel, they should first start with themselves.
