Kirsten Belle H. Tai, 18

Student, Ateneo De Manila University – 1st Year College

Three months ago, I walked into JRP, helpless and unsure of myself. I didn’t know whose help to ask. I was a quiet person and I didn’t like mingling with people. I guess, the greatest obstacle I had to overcome was my inability to truly express myself. Two months of John Robert Powers classes, I have come to know myself in a different but good way. I discovered my potential on many things. I guess the greatest help John Robert Powers gave me was guiding me in knowing myself including my strengths and weaknesses. It’s more of loving and believing yourself rather than comparing yourself with others.

When I first came to JRP, I wasn’t as confident as I am now. I learned how to present myself in a much more presentable and pleasing manner. I got to meet interesting people here at John Robert Powers, the facilitators, staff, and of course, my fellow JRP students. I’m grateful for the learnings I have gained. I know I will be able to use all these in the present and help me out in the long run.
