Thirdy and Kobe come home to 3x3

The 3x3 basketball court is home to almost every Filipino who grew up loving the game. This is a narrative that both Chooks-to-Go 3x3 ambassadors Thirdy Ravena and Kobe Paras share as they participate in Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas' attempt to set a world record this weekend in Cebu. Ravena, Paras, and the rest of over 2,000 Students of Sisters of Mary Boystown and Girlstown from Minglanilla and Talisay will simultaneously play 3x3 basketball over the weekend to break the initial record of 1,898 players. "It's truly an honor to be part of something historic," said Paras, "Growing up in 3x3, this brings a lot of memories for me." "Noong bata ako, three-on-three talaga ang nilalaro ko," added Ravena. The pair are set to spend time with the kinds in both campuses. While playing a full game is not set in stone for the two, they promised that they will make sure to make the students happy as they make history together. In addition to setting a world record, the two-day tournament will help the Philippines in racking up FIBA 3x3 federation points to help their bid for a 2020 Tokyo Olympics spot. 3x3 will officially be a medal event in the coming Olympics. This is a fact that both college stars are very thrilled to help with especially that they have both played in the international stage of 3x3. Paras won the gold in the Slam Dunk event in the 2015 FIBA 3x3 Under-18 Championship while Ravena had a chance to suit up in the 2013 FIBA Under-16 3x3 World Cup in Jakarta. "Now that it's a growing sport and an Olympic event, talagang dream come true ito for us," said Ravena......»»

Study: Asian-American students have highest unmet financial need

LOS ANGELES -- Asian Americans are the fastest growing population in the U.S., but recently released U.S. Department of Education data show that Asian American students have the largest gap between the cost of college and what they must pay---or unmet need. "This further illuminates how the Asian 'model minority' myth is damaging to the success of Asian American communities and has wide-ranging implications postsecondary financial aid policies," said the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP). In a recent report titled "When Financial Aid Falls Short," the center found that nearly three in four students experience the unmet need, with the level of unmet need being higher amon...Keep on reading: Study: Asian-American students have highest unmet financial need.....»»

Aetas take part in Allianz Conquer Challenger

Allianz is doing something that has never been done before. The global insurer is celebrating the strength of indigenous people, particularly the Aetas of Porac, Pampanga, by introducing them to the rising sport of obstacle course racing (OCR). Last December 9, Sunday, the third leg of the Allianz Conquer Challenge was held in Clark Global City in Pampanga, where 20 Aetas, between 16 to 21 years old, raced together with 20 Allianz employees in the pairs category.  The Aeta participants are students of Villa Maria Integrated School, an adopted public school of Allianz PNB Life, atop the mountains in Porac, Pampanga. “We recognize the strength of the Aetas. So, aside from educating them with the basics of personal finance through our financial literacy program, we would like to impart to them the value of committing to achieve goals that they have to set. We want to give them a fair chance of having employment opportunities in the future,” explained Gae Martinez, chief marketing officer, Allianz PNB Life. Sunday’s race was a 10km-race composed of 25 obstacles, which was the same trail tackled by professional racers who competed for a slot in the upcoming South East Asian (SEA) Games. Just last month, OCR was announced a new addition to the SEA Games to be held in Clark, Pampanga.  Some of the obstacles during the race were hurdles, taho carry, tirador, spider web, monkey bars, wall of tire, slip wall, commando climb, among others. Those who incurred penalties for not being able to perform an obstacle had to carry a 30-pound sand bag. “OCR is an up and coming sport. It is gaining popularity in the Philippines. Allianz as a company uses sports to connect with communities. The Aetas from Villa Maria is one of the communities that Allianz here in the Philippines has chosen to support.  This is, in line with our advocacy to promote social inclusion, one of the pillars of our company’s Corporate Citizenship Strategy,” Martinez further said. One of the Aeta participants, Reyna Baclay, was thankful to be given the opportunity and to discover the sport that she said is closely similar to the activities they do in everyday life. “They carry sand bags here. In the mountains, we carry 50 kilos of camote or ube that we bring to the lowlands. If we sell, our families will have money to spend. By joining the race, I can tell people, I have a dream, too. I want to work in IT (information technology). I hope I can continue after I graduate,” said Baclay, who at age 18 is still a grade nine student. Another Aeta youth, Miracle Lansang, 20, grade 12, is dreaming of someday working for the air force. “I want to work for the air force. But they say I will not qualify because of my height. I have not lost my hope that it can still come true,” he said. Renz dela Cruz, 21, was a graduate of the same school. However, he had to stop and work giving a ride on his motorcycle, because his parents cannot afford to send him to college. “I dream of becoming a civil engineer. My family needs me now. I have brothers and sisters, who are studying,” he said. With the project “Sanlahi” of Allianz in the Philippines, there is hope for these Aeta youth. “Allianz is here to provide the courage to move forward, the courage to overcome life’s obstacles, for them to have better life,” Martinez said, ”As our tag line goes - we dare you to, because we’re with you.”.....»»

Attracting the Filipino Gen Z

Aside from being heavily tech-oriented, Filipino Gen Zers---those born in 1996 and later---are looking to work not just for money, but for companies that are socially and environmentally responsible, and can provide them with opportunities to experience new things in their careers, says a recent study commissioned by information technology company Dell Technologies.   The "Gen Z: The Future Has Arrived" study compiled insights from over 12,000 high school and college students in 17 countries, over 4,000 of whom came from Southeast Asia (the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia). Locally, 730 Filipino students participated in the study.  ...Keep on reading: Attracting the Filipino Gen Z.....»»
