Miss Teen Philippines 2014: Girls Just Want To Have Fun

From the excerpt of the song of Cyndy Lauper: "Girls Just Want To Have Fun", truly implies the activities of the candidates of Miss Teen Philippines. 

Though the idea that the MISS TEEN PHILIPPINES ORGANIZATION wants to portray for the youth, that beauty and brain comes together with one indication and that is to promote EDUCATION as one of the most important means of empowering especially the women with knowledge and skills and to be a good role model as students to make accurate self-assessment and improve their work for the better. The continued advocacy of MTP will not be put into reality if not with the help of Ms. Karen Arceo, Mr. Ian and Jan Arceo and Ms. Kathy Arceo as the Official Organizers of the pageant. 

The fun will always be there in spite of the hectic schedules they have, I affirmed because I was there checking the girls 24/7 on guard.

From the outset, I haven't heard the girls' complaining about various aches and pains or feeling fatigue. I saw happy faces with determination that they can manage it properly! I might say that they have the volition or the will to do all the activities with much interests and ambitions.

I am greatly inspired on how they carry themselves, they are naturally drawn to do whatever feels best.  They already possess the direct alignment that they want to achieve and that makes me conclude that they all deserve to win the crown that they are entirely fantastic in their own style!

And to my Davao Team, you fought with a good fight and I am proud of YOU!!!  To all who supported them from the start, DAGHANG SALAMAT!!!
