Viviamo! Inc., makers of the Belle de Jour Power Planner, is spearheading the first Freedom to Dream Summit on April 13,2019 at the Red Carpet Cinema, Shangri-La Plaza. The event is meant to inspire and encourage the Filipino youth to discover their dreams, pursue their passions, and make a difference.
7 out of 10 Filipinos do not have a dream---study
The Dream Project PH, a non-stock and non-profit organization, conducted a survey among
teenagers across the country. According to the study, 7 out of 10 Filipinos do not have a dream in life. Reasons include discouraging words from others, a lack of self-esteem, lack of
passion, lack of opportunities, and poverty. Is it any wonder why many Filipinos don’t know who they are and what to do next? Darlyn Ty-Nilo, president of Viviamo and creator of Belle de Jour Power Planner, hopes to change this. “We want to take action,” she shares, “by creating positive conversations on dreaming.” Through this initiative, Darlyn and her team hopes to make lasting change among the Filipino youth by giving them the freedom to dream.
Addressing the needs of Filipino youth
The Freedom to Dream summit will have three plenary sessions, addressing the barriers that
contribute to the lack of dreaming. The first plenary, “Raising Self-Worth,” aims to address the discouraging words spoken against the Filipino youth, and the self-esteem issues that resulted from this. Raising self- worth means having faith in oneself and believing that they are worthy of living the life they want.
Participants will hear from Dr. Gia Sison, a mental health advocate who hosts “G Talks,” a talk show in CNN Philippines. Rezza Custodio Soriano, a life coach and “transformologist,” will be one of the speakers on raising one’s self-worth.
The second plenary session, “Igniting Your Passion,” will encourage participants to find the purpose and passion that excites them and invite them to have the drive to stand up and persevere despite experiencing day-to-day challenges.
Prim Paypon, Filipino Dreamagineer and founder of the The Dream Project PH, and Aimee Hashim, lifestyle consultant and founder of LoveLuxe Trading Inc., will be speakers for “Igniting Your Passion.”
Finally, attendees will know how to put their dreams into reality with “Making it Happen,” the event’s third plenary session. Participants will learn how to maximize their resources and act on their goals, despite the lack of opportunities and abject poverty. Multi-awarded entrepreneur behind Oryspa Spa Solutions Inc., educator and advocate of the Filipino brand Sherill Quintana; and Jessica Lopez, Maningning Miclat Art 2018 awardee who created artworks out of milkfish bones will be speakers of this plenary.
Multi-awarded singer-songwriter Jose Villanueva, better known as “Quest,” will be one of Freedom to Dream’s keynote speakers. He envisions creating a culture of sharing positivity, harnessing his talents and influence to uplift the nation.
Apart from the plenaries, there will be fast talk conversations with successful women entrepreneurs and artists who’ll share personal stories on dreaming big and getting over discouragements.
Advocacy expo and mini concert
Participants will have access to an advocacy expo, to raise awareness on a wide range of advocacies that Viviamo! Inc. supports. In fact, 100% of the net proceeds will go to their chosen charity organizations. Apart from this, eventgoers are in for a musical treat with a mini concert after the plenaries. The concert is to be led by Quest and other special guests. Through this event, Viviamo! Inc. aims to spark positive conversations on dreaming, break barriers, and empower the Filipino youth to live their dreams. The summit is co-presented by The After Six Club and BraveWorks.

What makes a woman? What is her true essence and her admirable characteristics? Is it just beauty or brains or perhaps her whistle-bait figure?
Or is it because of a woman’s natural beauty that a woman evokes, thus showing her innate grace and joy? Whatever and whoever a woman is—housewife, professional career woman or student—she deserves a face and body that is totally cared for despite and whatever he busy lifestyle is.
Show we love the women in our lives by giving them the opportunity to properly care for themselves through face and body care products that are proven safe and effective and will bring a bit of peace, love and joy to them every day.
Products from Good Virtues Co.™ (GVC), a brand of face and beauty products made in in Malaysia, understand the need for women to be treated with love, dignity and respect. They know that doing good to others begets a good deed in return, so that love given is love returned to every woman there is.
The GVC product range involves caring for the hair, body and face, but what’s best is the GVC products are made naturally, with no animal derivatives and without any chemical-based or synthetic ingredients.
For all GVC products, you cannot find any Parabens, artificial colorants, or even Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) and Ammonium Laureth Sulfate (ALES), all cleansing and foaming agents that can
harm the body. Though SLES and ALES are both palm oil and supposedly harmless, they undergo a chemical process when used by other brands, together with other additional compounds that thereby increases the risk of contamination and chances of contacting cancer for users.
GVC hair, body and skin care products also use synthetic fragrance for added care, compared to natural fragrance that may cause allergies among certain people. The synthetic fragrance compounds used by GVC all contain a “seal of approval” by the International Fragrance Association or IFRA to provide for that comforting, soothing yet safe and long-lasting scent that is safe for people who are allergic.
All Good Virtues Co.™ products contain Habbatus Sauda or “The Seed of Blessing,” called Black Seed Oil known as a purifying organic component known to be full of natural nutrients, minerals and cancer-fighting anti-oxidants. And the products are certified “halal” by the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (JAKIM), the only government body in the world that controls the implementation of Halal certification in products sold globally, which makes Good Virtues Co.™ products the only ones certified as “halal” in the market today.
Marvel at Good Virtues Co.™ and its face care line, which includes Day Cream, Night Cream, CC Cream, Facial Cleanser, Facial Scrub, Toner, and Make Up remover. They also have the Shower Cream, Hand and Body Lotion, Body Scrub, Feminine Wash, and Deodorant, for the body care range, and the Shampoo, Conditioner, and Hair Serum for hair care.
So what makes a woman? It starts by how she treats herself, how she makes herself beautiful inside and out to be able to exude confidence wherever she may be, whoever she’s with, whatever she does.
