“The rise of original content creators have given the youth of today more individuals to look up to and gain inspiration from. Together with platforms like YouTube, creators now have a venue to reach a global audience. Having them all come together in an event like It’s a Girl Thing allows us to bring some of the best vloggers closer to their fans so they can spark positivity to more girls here in Manila. Not only will the girls meet their favorite creators, but we are proud to also shed light on significant topics, particularly cyber wellness,” says Globe Senior Advisor for Creative Marketing and Multimedia Business Joe Caliro.
The event is supposed to be an inspirational platform of self-discovery that explores what it is to be a girl, and share ideas on how to turn dreams into a reality. The multicultural and inclusive event empowers women as a united community; promotes positive personal development; and explores key social issues such as anti-bullying, positive body image, racism, cultural challenges and opportunities, and self-worth.
