When opportunities come in surprise, we either grasp it whole heartedly because we believe in ourselves that we can make it, or fail to even try when we’re too unsure and afraid. This is a good realization that sprung up when Beauty Bound Asia knocked on my door in the middle of a busy work schedule, and I joined without having any second thoughts or fear of losing anything. It’s a realization that passion will only be seen true if it becomes the only weapon we believe would outlast us in any battle that may come our way.
To be honest, I wasn’t completely sure of what was it about. I was sure though, that I would be able to do whatever it takes to do well in this competition. Sleepless nights just to create and submit quality videos on time? Game! I’m up for it. And now, I’m in the National Finals where I’m one step closer to Asia Finals, where beauty creators from 11 cities all over Asia are going to get together for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be the next big beauty creator that will also have the chance to collaborate with the biggest names on YouTube like Michelle Phan.
This is where believing in your talents and having the guts to take yourself to greater heights can take you. Plus, it will reward you with things you never expect having in a snap. Just like these beautiful SK-II products.
Of course, nothing beats a good meal after a long day. We had dinner at Torch, Greenbelt and pigged out on Steak Salpicao, Mac n’ Cheese, and Sloppy Joe. Nothing too spectacular about the food, but I would consider this a memorable nightcap with my better half and a whole day worth of fun and good memories with team Beauty Bound Asia Manila.
Next up, Asia Finals! I will definitely keep you guys updated.
