Last July 10, Chalk magazine, in partnership with the Far Eastern University Mass Communication Society, dropped by my school for the Chalk Campus Tour 2014. It was an eventful day filled with so many laughter, beautiful people, ice cream and amazing insights from featured speakers, Camille Co, The Morning Rush's DJ Gino and Chico and Gretchen Ho.
This is also the first time my group of friends were complete. It was sad because we didn't have classes together due to scheduling constraints.
The event was hosted by the university's very own Christian and Andrea. It was followed by a performance of the Institute of Arts and Science's Dance Company and a few words from Chalk Magazine's Managing Editor, Elaine Carag.
The first speaker was Gretchen Ho. Gretchen Ho is a former player of the Ateneo Lady Eagles and now she's a sports commentator and host at ABS-CBN Sports and Action and at Balls TV. She's still playing volleyball, as she's also playing for Petron. She shared how to #LiveGood and to always be passionate in everything that we do. We should take the leap. I agree with everything that she shared last Thursday. She was so full of wisdom and she's just so beautiful in person!
Before the second speaker came on, there was a dating game, featuring one of SM Youth's Fashion model, LA. Man, how I wish I was picked from the crowd, but alas, my friends and I stared at him from afar while three lucky girls got to be with him on stage.
The second batch of speakers were from The Morning Rush, DJ Gino and Chico. The Morning Rush is a morning show on radio on RX 93.1, Mondays-Fridays from 6AM-10AM and hosted by Chico, Delamar and Gino. I listen to them every morning on my way to school ever since I was in high school. They are simply the best radio show for me. They shared the Top 10 Payo sa Sawi (Top 10 Advises for the Heartbroken). Every day, they have a Top Ten list with topics given by their die hard listeners. Their topic last Thursday was perfect for the #LoveHard segment. It was a very loud segment, with others just sharing their love problems and experiences and even sharing the entries from their show that morning.
Another dating game happened, this time with Tommy, another SM Youth Fashion Model. Now, I got a chance to take a picture with him before he went on stage. He's so dreamy! *sighs*
The final speaker was Camille Co. She's a fashion designer, owner of Coexist and a fashion blogger. She's one of my favorites and she's always on the Top 10 of Lookbook. Her fashion sense is just something to be admired of. She shared practical fashion tips, even if our school requires us to wear our uniform (booo! Just kidding!)
To say that the event is a blast is an understatement. I'm still reeling from the experience and the selfies I took with one of the Bright Young Manila Campus Hotties. Visit my Instagram account (@anettethewicked) to see the selfies from Thursday. Many thanks to my friend Nicole for these pictures and the Mass Communication Society for making this happen!
Till the next post! Bye!
