AIESEC Polytechnic University of the Philippines held its second Youth Leadership Conference on April 2, 2016 at the PUP Theater, College of Communication in Sta. Mesa. Around 200 students from different schools all over the Philippines joined this one-day event which aimed to empower the youth and train them to be relevant leaders of the nation. With its focus on bridging the gap between social classes and cultures, YLDC featured speakers who spoke about the theme.
Voice Care Philippines Executive Director and Pochology Academy trainer Ada Cuaresma was one of the speakers in the first half of the seminar. She gave an inspiring talk which invited the participants to think about themselves and bridge the biggest gap anyone could ever face in their life – where they are and where they want to be. Ada encouraged the students to discover their life purpose, and shared her own personal journey on how she was able to find hers through the use of her voice in training and motivational speaking.
Ada gave the participants simple steps on how to discover their life purpose with the use of 5 questions. After which, she also encouraged the participants to believe in their capacity for pursuing their dreams. She explained how everyone is designed to succeed, and that nothing is impossible as long as we believe it.
