What can’t we do these days? Everything is online now, from webinars to e-bonding nights, online classes to quiz nights – we have all mostly adjusted our interactions to be purely digital. From the activities that we took for granted to the important ceremonies, we’ve all made do with what we can. It’s no surprise then that Sunsilk, which has always encouraged Filipinas to explore #habamazingpossibilities, is at the forefront of all this, by hosting the first-ever online graduation in the Philippines.
Last May 28, Sunsilk celebrated the achievements of the Graduating Class of 2020 through a 45-minute program on Facebook Live. Celebrity endorsers and leading ladies, Kathryn Bernardo and Maris Racal, shared how they worked through their own struggles to get to where they are now. From overcoming challenges like balancing school and work to staying positive, focused, and hopeful given any situation, both stars opened up and showed their true beautiful selves.
Ten representatives from different schools around the country were also featured in the program and got a chance to meet their idols, Kathryn and Maris. “Di ko po inakala na magkakaroon pa kami ng graduation celebration dahil sa situation pero Sunsilk made it happen”, said one participant. All ten were given special awards for being achievers in different fields like journalism, math, and the arts, to name a few. The event ended with a commencement speech by Kathryn that encouraged the graduates to continue believing in habamazing possibilities, and a touching rendition of “Umagang Kay Ganda” by Maris.
Graduation is one of the most important events in a girl’s life. This once-in-a-lifetime occasion is a defining moment for every student out there who has had to go through numerous lessons, exams, and grueling nights just to make that victory march to their diploma. It was not at all what any of us imagined, but this Sunsilk online graduation party was indeed special, unforgettable, and the perfect way to celebrate the achievements of the Graduating Batch of 2020. Even in their own homes, girls continue to be inspired by Sunsilk and the habamazing possibilities that await them.
