PRE-TEENS

I feel like this kind of training is important and I should learn more about social skills, wardrobe, etc. I’m lucky to know and learn these things from JRP and that I should share these learning with others.

Mara Andrea Pagunsan, 11

Immaculate Conception Academy, Grade 7


When my mom told me that I would be attending John Robert Powers sessions, I was a little bit curious because I didn’t know what it is. She told me that I would be enrolling there so that I will be more confident and be familiar with social graces. I also felt a little bit sad when I found out that we have to wear dresses and heels because I am a shirt-jeans-and-sneakers type of girl. On the first day, I was a little bit shy because I didn’t know anyone but when I tried talking to my classmates, I felt a little better. At first I thought the classes would be boring. Then after one class, I found out that it was fun. The teachers are friendly and I could easily ask help from them. My classmates were easy to get along with and they were fun to be with. They are just like my friends at home that is why I was able to talk to them easily. JRP helped me to have a better posture. I also learned to pronounce words better and say them according to my emotions. I learned that people would believe what you say by the way you say it. I also learned what kind of clothes I should wear for my body type. I realized that the clothes I wear can make me look smaller or bigger and taller or shorter. JRP also encouraged me to talk to strangers without being shy. I realized that eye contact is important because people would trust you more. JRP made me know more about myself and helped me become more confident.

At first, I didn’t really think I’d like it but I saw it all. How happy my brother was with his friends so I joined. It was a great experience and I’m sad to be leaving. It improved me and made me my better / best self. Like it promised me to, I made awesome friends. I’ll never forget. It introduced me to my lifelong best friend, and helped me gain more on the way. If I become happy and maybe even famous in the future, I’ll never forget this program. It pushed me to have the strength to gain the incredible confidence I have today.

Giuliann Eimm L. Fadrigalan, 11

San Besa Alabang, Grade 5 Personality Development Level 3 student


Thanks to JRP because when I first came here, I was so confused of what to do. I was so shy. I don’t believe in myself and I always thought that I can’t be friends with other people but when I finally finished JRP, I never knew that I could have so many friends, that I can believe in myself and also achieve my dreams.

Celestial Love Decena, 12

Sacred Heart College, Grade 6 Personality Development Level 4 student


I learned so many new important stuff that I never learned before. I learned how to walk properly, sit, eat, and talk properly. I knew the basic and major things now and now, my family members are proud of me.

Lithara Ann S. Malabanan, 11

Manresa School, Grade 7 Personality Development Level III


I just finished Level 3 and I really enjoyed the journey to get here. I feel like JRP has really boosted my confidence and communication skills because before I got here, I had a really hard time communicating my thoughts well and I was pretty shy but after multiple classes in Voice Communication, I feel like I can express my thoughts just a little bit better now. I plan of coming back next year to complete the program and I know I will have a really fun time doing it!

TEENS

JRP made me realize and admit things about myself that I probably will never confide in anyone else because I was too insecure about it. I wasn’t proud of myself because I see myself as a failure due to the fact that I was so used to looking at other for approval other than my own. I learned that the first step to being a better person is loving and accepting yourself as a worthy human being. There are things we can’t completely change about ourselves but we can improve them as we go on with life and learn from mistakes and challenges.

Mikaela Faye Polo, 17

I believe that John Robert Powers’ program is what our own schools lack. It is something that should be taught at an early age to make sure people around this world will have a better and brighter future. It’s important that we know the proper etiquette in every situation so that we can be confident. This way, we can serve and have awareness of each others’ needs and our country’s needs as well. John Robert Powers has helped me in so many ways, from someone that has low self-esteem to someone who believes in herself and is already confident. Enrolling here may be such a huge investment but I know that someday this seed will grow and will yield greater results.

Razeline Michelle Lee Chua, 17

2nd Year College, University of Sto. Tomas


I am Christel. At my very young age, I really dreamt of becoming a ramp model, if give the chance and when I’m ready to be one. Thanks to the JRP Program, which helps me a lot in improving my skills and potentials. Although, I honestly believe that there are a lot more to learn and to improve, which I prefer to learn soon on my next year at JRP, still JRP gave me the chance to achieve my goal step-by-step, slowly but surely as they say. I know one day I can be a good if not the best model in the country. Thanks a lot and I’m very proud to be one of your students.

Christel Timbol Cristobal, 14


John Robert Powers has been able to help me improve my personality and confidence by giving me information from all the facilitators and classmates throughout my journey in JRP. I have been able to speak comfortably in public and be able to express my ideas in a well-organized manner as to not make things sound boring or clustered. It has also been a new beginning because I feel like a new person after knowing my weaknesses and strengths so I was able to improve myself in many aspects and meeting other people has made overcoming our problems a lot easier as we would all help each other out towards a common goal.

Kevin Michael A. Cruz, 17

Manila Central University 2nd Year College


Before, I was very shy and timid because I’m afraid to talk to other people. But now, after I enrolled at JRP, I’m not shy anymore. I have confidence and I know that I can do all things because I believe in myself.

Acereil V. Basco, 16

New Era University, Grade 11


I enjoyed my stay in JRP. I’ve gained friends and I also learned a lot of things in order to develop myself. I still lack many things but I think that I’ve improved a lot compared before.

YOUNG ADULTS

JRP helped me to be confident and to express myself better. They helped me discover my potential and how to protect myself gracefully. They helped me to trust my abilities and myself in everything I do and do things passionately to the best of my abilities. They also taught me that people make their impressions regarding you by the way you talk, the way you stand, and the way you project yourself. That is why, it is important for one to cover all these bases to become the best version of oneself.

Justine Anne Gurtiza, 21

University of Sto. Tomas, 4th Year College


Before I discovered JRP, my life was really dull and I get too pressured because of friends. I don’t really open up even to my family, friends, and to my community. I prefer staying at home and watching them socialize because I am afraid of being judged by other. When I’m being judged, I get mad or get negative vibes. Because of JRP, I became the person I want to be and I’m not afraid of being judged. I learned to love myself in JRP.

Patricia Bernadette C. Arganda, 21

4th Year College – FEU Makati


Being in John Robert Powers is truly a blessed and humbling experience. From my shy and awkward appearance back in 2013 to a more confident self I am now, JRP had a huge role in my personal development. Through all of my intensive classes in JRP, they were able to hone me as a confident lady. Thank you to all my teachers and mentors for equipping me with the knowledge, skills, and experience to help me become better each day.

Michaela Ileto Navato, 20

De La Salle University


This all started out as an opportunity I saw that my summer schedule was free, and so, I decided to give JRP a try. I dared myself to go out of my comfort zone because this experience is definitely out of my shy and little-to-no confident character. Yet, despite all my new and interesting experience in learning how to do make-up and wardrobe, I saw how all the classes come together in harmony to make me realize how beautiful I am. There are too much things to say but if there’s one thing I can mention here, it’s this: I never regretted any decision to attend JRP for it definitely changed my perspective of my life, decision, and myself.

Camille Tan, 19

ADMU, 3rd Year AB Management Economics


I started my classes in JRP two months ago and I can assure everyone that many things changed in myself as a whole. I remember on my first day, I planned to ditch the classes because of fear but thankfully, I didn’t. Visualization 1 was my first class in JRP, which helped me lessen my fear and it helped me get a much better view of myself. The next days until the next months, I have learned so much that I didn’t want to leave, not to mention the great people I met that I can consider as friends and very good persons. Before my classes in JRP, I considered myself “not normal”. (Ask me why.) Well, I considered myself not normal because I have a high-pitched voice and a small height. So, people always think of me as an elementary student even though I already graduated from high school. What JRP taught me is that we must accept our flaws and we must love them. Now, I know that I accept that I’m small. I know that God gave me this height for a reason. JRP also taught me how to improve my voice and project it well. I will continue to practice them until I reach my goal. I am really thankful to God because He let man create this school for those people who are in need. I know that God is smiling and happy for these people who helped in the development of every person they teach. Indeed, their time and effort will never go to waste. Godspeed!

EXECUTIVES

Setting my foot at JRP is just a dream before, but now that a dream of mine became a reality. I am now a proud alumna of John Robert Powers. Looking back several years ago, I just stared at the billboards of JRP telling myself that one day after I graduate from college and I already am earning my own money, I will enroll myself at this prestigious center. The things that I have learned from JRP are the very helpful lessons / learning I will cherish for a lifetime.

Noreen L. Tibay, 30

Former HR Officer at Toshiba, Personality Development Program Level 1


I have learned the best and important part of my life from JRP which is confidence. My journey in JRP has always been helpful, the sessions were very attractive, practical, goal-oriented and emotional, too. I personally started benefitting and saw the improvement in myself from all of the sessions/ class I have attended.

Jefferson B. Desamito, 36

Solutions Enablement Supervisor


I wish I learned these things back when I was still in elementary. If I did, I would be unstoppable (just kidding). I hope that our education system in the Philippines considers adapting the courses I learned here so that many Filipinos will raise the bar on how they interact with other people.

Lorraine Liao, 28

Polytechnic University of the Philippines + UX Designer


My mom once asked me if it is worth it if she enrolls me in JRP and that if I have a child, would I enroll him / her, too? I told her that yes it was worth it. The experience itself is worth it. I’ve learned a lot from the instructors. I was inspired by them that I can also achieve everything I want in life. Every story I’ve heard was the best lesson I’ve learned in JRP. Although, after JRP doesn’t mean that I’m already great in everything that I do. It’s not like magic. I still have a lot to work on with myself because it’s a continuous process. I will remember JRP as an organization that pushed me beyond my limit and I am thankful for that.

Beverly M. de Luna, 22

The Executive Development Program of John Robert Powers has so much to offer even to a professional like me. There are aspects of the program that helped me to further examine myself, where I need to improve, and what I must do to be a better person and executive. The instructors are experts in their respective fields and they create a constructive learning environment for young adults and professionals alike. I would recommend their executive track program to anyone who is looking for advancement.

John Robert Powers helped a lot in bringing out the “bests” in me. It helped me achieve my dreams. I have working in the call center industry for ten years. I dreamt of becoming a part of the training department but had fears of submitting an application form because I am an undergraduate. I know deep within me that I can but I am not confident enough and had doubts about myself. Then, I decided to enroll at JRP. I started attending classes at JRP in July 2016 and changes began. I became aware of myself and started to believe that I have what it takes to become a trainer. I grabbed the opportunity when our company opened the associate trainer’s position. On November 26, 2017, I was hired as an Associate Trainer! Indeed, I am special. I am valuable. Dreams do come true…JRP makes it happen. From the bottom of my heart, thank you JRP!

BEAUTY QUEENS

Looking back, I spent my summer in John Robert Powers taking personality development classes and so much more. Brimming with pride and excitement, there I was with my colleagues gliding our feet while enjoying our runway polishing techniques - one of my favorite classes that made me confident to try the world of pageantry. Now, I’m reaping the advantage of investing my time wisely, from being a shy teen I now feel more adequate. The training I went through is now innate in me. Thanks to JRP for molding me to become a responsible adult, capable of maximizing my potentials to the fullest. Lastly, JRP has helped and shaped me into who I am today. The exposure and experience they gave like the “summer showcase” made me realize that they could really make things happen for you. I am now more comfortable dealing with people. The experience is one of the highlights of my teenage years.

Roanne Refrea, 26

John Robert Powers was my first step to reaching my goal. It helped me discover myself more and appreciate who I am as a person. It has also helped me enhance my skills and talents which are now very important in the industry that I am in. Learning from experienced instructors was a very good experience. They encouraged and guided me to be the best that I can be. John Robert Powers made it happen for me!

Jennifer Tarol Barrientos

Binibining Pilipinas-Universe 2008


I learned how to present myself very well in front of the crowd in JRP. I also apply the believability lesson when I’m in the competition and believe that I’m beautiful, talented, and intelligent person. Although I don’t have any title yet, I’m still contented because I know I showed my best self. I will always be positive and patient until I reach my dreams. Lastly, if I lose one dream I still have another one.

Christine Mae Maligalig


Being part of the John Robert Powers family means a lot to me especially for teaching me improve my pageant career as well as applying it in my daily life style. I go to work with everything I have learned from JRP to be the best that I can be; not only pageants but also as a person in whatever field of work that I’ll be in the future. I like to have my own business. I know whenever I need further teaching, I’ll always turn to JRP as it’s the best out there. I would like to thank everyone especially the whole JRP team, my family and friends who have been pushing me hard to improve myself. I didn’t get my first target but I won’t stop, I will join more pageants and I’ll always be thankful to John Robert Powers for the success.

Ina Guerrero

Binibining Pilipinas candidate 2015


Lack of self-confidence, yes, you heard it right! It was the reason why I hated joining pageants at first. While everyone believed I can do it, I didn't. Until John Robert Powers made it possible and made it happen from speaking, walking, and interacting with other people. JRP helped me develop my overall personality.It all started with JRP! Thank you to my mentors and to John Robert Powers.

CELEBRITIES

At JRP, they taught me the necessary skills to overcome my fears and cultivate the art of self-expression. With their help, I learned to believe in my own abilities and not be hindered by my self-imposed limitations. From a shy, awkward boy stripped of all ambition and aspiration, I’ve grown into young man beaming with confidence and skills consistent with my career. Today I am a young actor, singer, dancer and commercial model and I have a lot to thank JRP for. So much has changed and the new Benigno De Guzman, Jr. is happy to have been a part of the John Robert Powers family. “Believe in yourself. Be who you are. Don’t be scared in challenges. You may not know but this challenge can one day bring you success.“

Ben De Guzman

John Robert Powers helped me discover my passion in life. It made me realize that we should develop our God-given talent and share it with people around us. JRP honed my skills in acting and my entire personality. Everything was just a dream before and JRP made it all happen! Dream come true! Everything is possible. Just dream big, pursue it, and share it with passion.

Manel Sevidal

The English Learning Program of JRP helped me a lot in terms of socializing with other people. I learned how to use the tenses of verb correctly. I would recommend JRP to others because it is a good school for anyone who is having a hard time with English.

Karen Mae Reyes

ABS-CBN Artist


My overall experience in JRP has been a wonderful roller coaster ride! I just love how the class size is absolutely perfect! Being with different kinds of people and leaving the class with them as your friend is always fun. But of course, it could be scary at times, especially when they give you the wrong impression. That’s how JRP trains you. From how you dress to how you speak and how you stand up, it may all sound vain but what can you do? After all, everything starts from the first impression! Then personality comes next. That’s why it’s called personality development! They teach you how to openly express how you feel the proper way, which is to be sensitive to other people’s feelings. Then if you think you’re ready for something extraordinary, I suggest you upgrade to the celebrity program! It’s my personal favorite! I never thought I would try acting nor hosting. But here I am, hosting events and soon, you’ll be seeing me in an independent film. So if you think you can’t act, host or model well, this program will help you see the light! This program will definitely bring out the superstar in you! JRP indeed makes your dreams come true!

Nikita Conwi


I remember when I started out as an awkward teenager at John Robert Powers 10 years ago. I was in high school and I believe I was still at that stage of discovering who I really was. One thing I knew—I loved performing and dreamed of seeing myself on TV one day. I didn’t really know what John Robert Powers was about until I saw an ad on the newspaper. I called up and I was immediately scheduled for an appointment by one of the consultants. To make the long story short, I started attending the personality development classes a week after speaking with my consultant. I found the lessons very helpful since I was at a “transition” stage. In the visual poise class, not only was I taught to walk with confidence but also command attention upon entering a room without having to say anything. I might have been too young to apply make-up but John Robert Powers made sure that students like me learned the importance of caring for one’s skin and hair. One of the classes that really made an impact in my life and present career was the voice communication class. I still remember the day my instructor told me that she knew she would see me on television one day, delivering the news or hosting a show. 10 years after, here I am enjoying my job as a broadcaster while imparting my knowledge and experience as one of the JRP instructors. John Robert Powers develops the skills and talents of every student, making sure that everyone reaches his/her fullest potential.

FACES OF JRP

Because of JRP, I have faced and have overcome my doubts and came out to be a more confident version of me. I have learned more about myself and my worth as a person. Miss Marisyll once said, “You are a person of substance; you are more than just a face and a body.” Confidence comes from within. It’s surely something that I will not take for granted but will yearn to develop.

Germaine Ferrer

Face of John Robert Powers 2015 Female Winner Personality Development Program Level 1


My favorite part of the Personality Development Program is the discussion about how to know my skin type, how to take care of my skin specially the face and how to do day and night make up. Next, I learned more about myself like what are my strengths and weaknesses. Lastly, the portion where I came to know what I need to improve and what I need to do to have a good impression.

Jade Bernardo

Face of John Robert Powers 2014


A lot has changed since I won the title of being the Face of John Robert Powers. One of these is change in my surroundings as a student. They admire and respect me. Most of them say, “Wow! Sikat ka na, friend! Model ka na!“. Some people recognize me even though I do not know them personally and it flatters me. I was also invited in general assemblies and other major events as their special guest. There was an instance where a candidate competing for the Engineering Ambassador and Ambassadress who asked me to teach him how to walk on a runway gracefully and how to project in front of the camera.

ENGLISH LEARNING PROGRAM GRADUATES

English is not our first language but this language helped me with my job and allowed me to use these skills to talk to foreign clients. I thought that my learning is quite enough. I was hesitant with my grammar that sometimes, I was even misunderstood. As I entered John Robert Powers, the expectation of building my self-confidence using the proper grammar and delivering the speech have changed me. The facilitators were very helpful and patient with us and allowed us to open-up ourselves on what we don’t understand. The sessions are not enough for me because I crave for more learning. Unfortunately, I’ll be leaving the country but given the chance, I would love to still continue and enroll to the next English level.

JELEANE S. GIDLAYAN, 27

English Learning Program, 1 Level Telephone Banker at JRP Morgan & Chase Co.


Because of JRP, I became aware of my image and way of speaking. Before, I don’t care about how I look whenever I went out. Now, I make sure at least that I wear decent and comfortable clothes and be confident wherever I go. I also try speaking in English even though I make few mistakes. I am more motivated and focused on my goal now.

Before I went to John Robert Powers, I was a little bit scared because maybe the teacher will scold me about the errors I did. When I took JRP lessons (which is the first day), I said, “Well, this isn’t bad at all.” I thought at first that I will have a boring discussion every meeting, but it was fun. Thank you, JRP, for teaching me to conquer my fear and stage fright.

Mara-Ron Antoinette T. Bilon, 12

Grade VII, Miriam College


When my mom told me to join JRP, she wanted me to be fluent in English and to be able to express myself confidently. I said yes, and enrolled myself. The classes really helped me not just about how to dress myself but how to be confident and how to interact with other people. The instructors make us feel welcome every class like we’re just friends. JRP really helped me when I entered college. I was more confident and was able to make new friends. Thank you, JRP and to my instructors that pushed me to do well.

Tracilyn Choy, 21

On the first day of my class at John Robert Powers, restlessness and nervousness struck me as I entered the unfamiliar environment with strange faces. Initially, I had a difficult time speaking up and sharing my ideas in front of strangers. However, as I engaged in the conversation club, I gradually built up and developed my confidence and speaking skills. I learned that I need not be nervous and just naturally and unhesitatingly share my ideas. In my English class in JRP, I further developed my grammar skills and, somehow, writing skills as well. Indeed, enrolling in JRP was a good decision as it gave me several benefits. Not only did it improve my English writing and communication skills, but also opened the opportunity to allow me to meet and interact with new people.

PAGEANT TRAINING

My experience in John Robert Powers’ Pageant Training is transformative! It is really one step forward to being a queen! Maybe not a beauty queen but a queen of one’s own right. From being a plain Jane who is often hit by petty insecurities, I was able to realize better my self-worth and became very happy with who I have become. I learned that the validation that I am a beautiful person has to come first from me. In a nutshell, the most significant lessons I learned from the pageant training is to be poised and to be effective when I speak. JRP taught me that a queen always has to maintain poise at all times, whether standing waiting in line for the train or from dining in a formal setting. Her poise can go a long way and this should enable her to be spotted even from a distance. Seems like a lot of work but it is really a mindset to be developed. I used to dread public speaking as I was conscious of the people looking at me, but I learned that once on stage, I have to focus on the goal, which is to basically convey a message. Ever since, I always try to keep my composure during public speaking and direct my energy in delivering the message, which always has to makes sense and delivered in a clear manner. These two things were my main takeaway from JRP’s pageant training and I know these will make me the queen I am meant to be!

The reason why I joined this beauty pageant training is because I want to develop into my full potential and to enhance my talents and skills in engaging to bigger pageants in the future. As I experienced the two-day training, I met people from different walks of life that helped me to socialize better with other people. I realized that for you to beautify your physical appearance, you have to consider your inner beauty as well. Since I am planning to join bigger pageants, I am now more confident that I can compete and handle myself. I am very thankful and blessed to be a part of this pageant training.

Danna Ashley J. Mayo, 17

De La Salle - College of Saint Benilde, 2nd year Student


I was indeed blessed to be one of the few students to be chosen for the sponsored beauty pageant training. This training helped me to be more confident and to feel good about myself. It changed how I behave and socialize with others. It helped improve the way I walk, talk and dress-up. It also made me realize that inner beauty is the most important thing. Since I’m a pageant enthusiast, I was able to use all I’ve learned in JRP and applied it to all the pageants I recently joined. This training really established a good foundation for me and will continue to apply everything I’ve learned as I join bigger pageants in the future.

The free pageant training last August 2016 was a surprise blessing for me. I never thought of being in the top 12 participants of John Robert Powers. At first, I was nervous of what will happen next and upon auditioning in the said event, the whole staff of John Robert Powers were accommodating and friendly. It was an excellent learning experience to be part of them. I feel at home with the teachers and staffs. They treated us like family. During the training, I have learned all the manners and etiquettes of a beauty queen. It was delivered very well. Kudos to JRP! Thank you for choosing me as one of the participants of your free pageant training. It was a fulfillment of a dream to be part of an institution who will mold you to your greatest!

Beatrix Nathania See Javier, 20

It has been almost 6 months since I was selected to be part of Sponsored Beauty Pageant Training last August 2016. I didn’t expect that I will be chosen because I have no experience joining beauty pageants. What I know is that I have a dream to become one of the successful Filipina beauty queens. I am happy and delighted. I am able to learn and to gain knowledge on what the industry is doing. It is difficult to compete in beauty pageants because you have to be mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually ready. John Robert Powers taught me to believe in myself and to fill my self with confidence. Every woman has her own advantage but if you wear confidence and believe you can, definitely you will win the competition. My two-day journey for the Beauty Pageant Training was filled with so much confidence and fresh start of my journey to become the better version of myself. I treasure that day because it is the beginning of the new me. I started to think of ways and apply the lessons I learned during the training. I always tell myself that it takes time for me to become a beauty queen. I need to train myself and be ready for the battle of becoming the next Filipina beauty queen who will represent the country in international competitions. Thank you John Robert Powers! If you have not chosen me to be part of that Beauty Pageant Training, I would still be thinking of how I will be able to start my journey to be a beauty queen. Everything starts from a dream and I am amazed that that dream will come to reality. John Robert Powers will always be a part of that journey.

Being a participant in the sponsored Beauty Pageant Training was a huge milestone for me. It was an affirmation of my dream of becoming a beauty queen. The education I received from John Robert Powers gave me a strong foundation towards reaching my best self. It taught me how to have a winner’s mindset, that in everything that I do, I should strive for excellence. I had the privilege of being mentored by the country’s finest trainers who are experts in their field. They recognized my potential and they cheered me on as I take steps toward turning my dream into a reality. The past 6 months have been eventful for me in all aspects of my life. As the saying goes, “Success favors the prepared mind.” I have sought opportunities to continuously enhance myself so that I will be 110% ready by the time I compete at a beauty pageant. My daily routine is geared towards becoming 1% better than I was yesterday. I started leading a healthier lifestyle, incorporating workouts/exercises on a daily basis, having a proper diet and getting the right amount of sleep. I researched on learning the essentials of becoming a beauty queen – the right make-up, the proper walk and how to dress like one. I lived each day acting as if I were a queen already, being at my best at all times physically and mentally. I surrounded myself with people who encourage me to chase after my dream. I developed a positive self-image and it reflected with the way I live my life – finding beauty and purpose in everything that I do. I am thankful to John Robert Powers for providing such an opportunity. As a kid, I could only dream of being a product of JRP. If it were not for their Sponsored Beauty Pageant Training, I would not have the confidence to push myself out of my comfort zone and overcome my fears. Thanks to JRP, I am confidently beautiful with a heart.
