“I am a firm believer that education will really help you,” former Preview EIC Pauline Juan shares. At the launch of Cream Silk’s #ConditionedForGreater campaign, strong and empowered Filipinas gathered to talk about the importance of pushing oneself to go for greater. The brand has partnered with Edukasyon.ph to offer free online courses for Filipinas who want to be greater at anything they’ve set their minds on. If you’re curious and want to enroll in a few, here are non-negotiable courses for any woman set for greatness.
1. Increase Productivity at Work
This course is a must, no matter what field you’re in. If you’re constantly feeling overwhelmed with your job, it might be time for you to reset your perspective when it comes to juggling tasks. It can also teach you to work on your leadership skills if you’re interested in managing a team.
2. Digital Marketing
Building a strong online presence is crucial for any business. Make yours stand out after taking this course. You’ll learn effective ways to market your product or service—from creating an impressive website to producing fun social media content.
3. Business Communication
“Now’s the time for Filipinas to take center stage,” says Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray. In any endeavor, you’d want your voice to be heard and taken seriously. Learn how to communicate ideas effectively as well as close important deals. This course teaches you the art of easy-to-read business writing and client-ready presentations.
4. Camera Essentials
If you want to get in touch with your creative side, why not try investing in photography? It’s a great avenue for storytelling. Plus, you can use those picture-taking skills when building your portfolio, especially if you’re a content creator. This course lays down the basics of photography from equipment, lighting, and color, to shooting still and in-motion subjects.
“I’ve seen people transform first hand through education,” says designer and SOFA Design Institute Founder Amina Aranaz-Alunan, “But a lot of students I meet have this fear and apprehension of taking that first step.” Actress and artist Heart Evangelista also adds, “We should all inspire women to reach their ultimate. We want Filipinas to believe that they are conditioned for greater.”
The idea of learning about things you have little to no expertise in may sound intimidating. But if you want to better yourself—your craft, your career, or whatever your passions are—you shouldn’t settle for anything less.
