Jollibee’s new batch of Yumbassadors is a roster of millennials representing various fields and industries, each with unique accomplishments that serve as an inspiration to their peers. These achievers continuously trail blaze in their respective fields serving as role models for today’s generation Y.
Just recently in grand langhap-sarap fashion, with overflowing Yum burgers at One Esplanade, Jollibee unveiled and proudly introduced to the media its newest young men and women who imbibe what is it to be a #ProudGenYum #Yumbassador . I am grateful and honored to meet them all upclose!
Among these are international model Kelsey Merritt, Cropital founder Rachel de Villa, kid genius and inventor Angelo Casimiro, poet and spoken word artist Juan Miguel Severo, model and agricultural entrepreneur Jairus Ferrer, outstanding student Christopher Valentin, record-breaking runner Mea Gey Niñura, world-famous girl group 4th Impact, and F1 racer Marlon Stockinger together with actors James Reid and Nadine Lustre.
“This year’s batch of Yumbassadors are proof of how millenials are—passionate, driven, determined, and always going for the best. The Gen Y or #ProudGenYum are impressive individuals and each of them are out to change the world,” according to Jollibee Philippines’ Marketing Head and Global Brand Chief Marketing Officer Francis Flores.
Everyone in the #Yumbassadors list were present except for actors James Reid and Nadine Lustre who were in the thick of their showbiz commitments.
What brought the house down (figuratively of course!) was the electrifying mini-concert of the all-sister group, 4th Impact and recent finalist for the reality TV show The X-Factor UK. I loved their rendition of “Bang Bang” and “Titanium” which they sang before a screaming crowd. The sisters Almira, Celina, Irene and Mylene Cercado are here in town for a vacation and scheduled this week to fly back to the UK for their shows.
“Hindi po namin inaasahan ang award na ito kaya nagpapasalamat po kami sa karangalan na ito mula sa Jollibee”, shared a thankful Almira in behalf of her equally talented sisters. God bless you more, ladies! We’re so proud of where you are now.
Another person who was not expecting such recognition is F! race driver and triathlete Marlon Stockinger. I asked when did he know of the Jollibee title? “Just a week ago. And I’m truly thankful for the honor.” Marlon is in town and is soon to get back to Europe for a racing stint. Way to go, Marlon! Good luck and always cool seeing you.
“Our Yumbassadors were chosen because of their passion for langhap-sarap ng buhay. They do not settle for mediocrity. They welcome challenges as opportunities to grow and become better people. I am confident that their individual journeys and success stories will inspire many young people.” concludes Mr. Flores.
This very young and success-driven roster of #Yumbassadors are a clear image of dedication and passion on their crafts and fields. Together they believe that nothing is impossible that we all should work hard to achieve our goals…our dreams. Together they showcase greatness!
Congratulations to all awardees and yes, you just inspired me to not give up and to continue striving to become the BEST!
