PHINMA Education, a network of schools fast emerging as a leader in providing accessible quality education, has partnered with musician Jose Villanueva III, also known as Quest, for a campaign to inspire young Filipinos to pursue their education and fulfill their dreams.

PHINMA Education has launched the campaign with Quest’s new song “Sasamahan Kita,” which talks about keeping dreams alive in the face of challenges and counting on a support system to achieve a brighter future. This supports the company’s longstanding mission of “making lives better through education.”

In writing “Sasamahan Kita,” Quest took inspiration from his own childhood. Battling poverty, Quest found his first mentor in his grandmother, a teacher, who taught him the value of education and the importance of having a strong role model.

“My grandmother took care of us from the start. I placed myself in her—a teacher’s—shoes and wrote about the experience. I saw how much she dedicated her life to her profession. I saw her dedication and hard work,” shared Quest. “She inspired me to work hard and never give up.”

For Quest, his grandmother’s example led him to value education and seek people who would support him and his dreams.

“I’m a big advocate of getting an education and having the right mentors. I had to learn that I needed to surround myself with the right people,” he added. “The people in my life gave me the confidence I needed to dream and achieve, no matter how small.”

It was Quest’s passion for education and desire to pay it forward that inspired PHINMA Education to link up with the artist.

“When the opportunity to work with a passionate partner like PHINMA Education was presented, I gladly accepted. Through this anthem, we aim to raise the spirits of the Filipino youth, remind them of the value of education, and even pursue their educational opportunities with PHINMA Education,” said Quest.

“At PHINMA Education, we believe that education is key to creating a better, brighter future,” shared PHINMA Education President Chito Salazar. “We share Quest’s advocacy giving Filipino youth a strong support system. Working on ‘Sasamahan Kita’ has given us the chance to highlight how education has changed the lives of our own students and those of young Filipinos from households with limited income across the country.”

Quest’s music video for “Sasamahan Kita” features PHINMA Education institution Araullo University (Cabanatuan, Nueva Ecija) and the stories of three of its students: Harry Bibat, a BS Criminology student who moonlights as a tricycle driver; Aldrin Aquino, a BS Civil Engineering student who works as a student assistant; and Erika Balaoing, a BS Civil Engineering student who makes a living as a farmer to help support her family and her studies.

With PHINMA Education, students like Harry, Aldrin, and Erika have access to an education that focuses on active learning; provides an industry-relevant, skills-oriented curriculum; and encourages them to develop their soft skills and leverage their motivations to create tangible results. They also have access to scholarship programs without a grade retention component, making it easier for students to stay in school and complete their degree programs.

To date, PHINMA Education’s network covers Araullo University (Nueva Ecija), Cagayan de Oro College (Cagayan de Oro), Southwestern University (Cebu), University of Iloilo (Iloilo), University of Pangasinan (Pangasinan), and Saint Jude College (Manila).

PHINMA Education’s structured, gritty approach to education has already started to bear fruit. More than 80% of its graduates find employment within a year of their graduation. In addition, the PHINMA Education schools have recorded a 100% passing rate for first-time examinees in 40 different board examinations, including nursing, civil engineering, accountancy, criminology, and education.

  • PBB’s Ryan Bacalla surprised everyone with his transformation.
  • The ex-housemate expressed his gratitude to those who encouraged him and replied to those who left negative comments.

Netizens were shocked when ex-Pinoy Big Brother 737 housemate Ryan Bacalla’s transformation went viral.

Despite being evicted from the reality show that was aired three years ago, he decided to fully flaunt his sexuality as he continuously changed his looks.

With this, people stated that Ryan can actually be mistaken for a girl with the way he looks now.

In a Facebook post, he expressed shock with the appreciation he received online. But his surprise was not only because of the positive messages he received. He also said that some of those good things are from those who turned their back on him when he was still in showbiz.

“But shockingly, some of them are people who, unfortunately, has turned their back on me when I failed showbiz. And now they are here again, cheering me up, supporting me and telling me how proud they are to me. Sadly, I just realized, people will only remember you when you’re rich, famous/popular or dying.”

I am certainly surprised with the huge number of people that has appreciated my "transformation." I went viral on social…

Posted by Ryan Bacalla on Saturday, November 3, 2018

Unfortunately, Ryan’s change wasn’t viewed positively by everyone. While others complimented him, there are some who can’t help but comment negatively to his transformation.

In a comment, he said that negative comments don’t affect him as he is “living the life [he] desired to and [he is] happy with it”. He also urged everyone to stop using the Bible to hurt others.

Hi guys! First of all, wala akong pake sa mga negative comments niyo. I am living the life I desired to and I am happy with it, now deal with it guys! Come on it’s 2018 let’s stop using the Bible to hur tone another and to justify your belifs. What’s more important in this world is love, happiness and peace. Talagang hindi uunlad ang bansa kung paulit-ulit kayong mangingialam sa buhay ng may buhay. After all, ang lawak naman kasi ng nagagawa ng inggit sa sarili at inggiy sa kapwa. Anyway, thank you for the warm response to my transformation. God bless us all

Ryan is currently a student at the Southwestern University (SWU) in Cebu City.
