Recently I joined the neophyte program of Ad Create Society, the official organization of advertising students in my school. As part of our training, we were tasked to create an ad about ourselves. The good part is that we had the chance to choose any medium, and so I decided to promote myself through a short video.
The idea behind this video actually came up when I was doodling on a piece of paper during my econtwo class (Yeah I’m such a badass). Ever experienced a time when you suddenly had that ‘ting’ moment? Like a light bulb just appeared above your head? Well, that happened. Haha!
Anyway, found above is the final video that I made for our first task. Also, kudos to my mom who helped me come up with a copy!
The Kids of ERDA
If there is one thing I have learned from last week’s community service program, it is that nothing is more precious than giving your time to other people. These kids proved that the little things do matter. Our class activity took a day, but the experiences that we have shared together would definitely leave a mark on us that lasts a lifetime.

“We are conditioned to think that we must respond to everyone; to answer calls, to draw out lengthy conversations, to remain friends with former lovers. These things, they say, are what a sociable, normal person would do. But the truth is I like my time to myself; to read books without anybody bothering me for something as mundane as dinner, to talk little or never at all with people I am not comfortable with. Sure, we have to be civil about things, but mostly I believe that we have the option of whom we wish to keep in our lives and whom we wish to keep out.”
“You’ll need coffee shops and sunsets and road trips. Airplanes and passports and new songs and old songs, but people more than anything else. You will need other people and you will need to be that other person to someone else, a living breathing screaming invitation to believe better things.”
