“I feel the need to surround myself with like-minded individuals for support and additional motivation” — Vanj Endaya
Successful career woman, rockstar age-group triathlete and an icon for beauty and wellness– these are qualities that best describe Ms. Vanj Endaya. She’s relentless in her pursuit of excellence in her multi-sport, she’s beautiful in and out and she perseveres to balance her activities with her career both in her work and as a mom. And this is why she is one of the Go Girl Ambassadors that represent the true calling of what a Filipina should be… active and empowered to pursue her dreams in the right path!
I was able to attend the launching of Go Girl Expo yesterday at Greenbelt 5 an event that empowers an active and healthy lifestyle that will culminate in the Go Girl Expo at the Rockwell Tent, Makati on May 30-31, 2015! Aside from Vanj Endaya, other notable Go Girl Ambassadors present were Jaymie Pizarro, Ruby Gan, Bea Azcuna, Marga Marty, Clang Salindong, Jieneb Kho and Althier Alianza, among others.
This event should cater to every Filipina of all persuasion who wants to shop for the latest products and services and will consist of vendors in fashion, beauty services, fitness demos, health, nutrition, massages, motivational talks, food and drinks and much more!
If you are considering exploring new horizons, learning about new opportunities or skills in the field of health and sports but are unsure on how to proceed, these Go Girl Ambassadors should be able to give you a head-start into your dreams of an active and productive lifestyle.
GO GIRL! EXPO: In Pursuit of Healthy and Active Filipino Women
In a study conducted by the World Health Organization, more women in the Philippines are considered inactive whether in occupational, non-occupational, or leisure-related activities (WHO 2010). The same study also reveals that women are more active in domestic activities than men more than ever. Furthermore, physical inactivity may contribute to coronary diseases, diabetes, and obesity.
This is the reason why Jump Start, Fondo Manila and Yabang Pinoy are working together to bring the very first GO GIRL! EXPO- Empowering Healthy and Active Filipinas. It is by promoting a holistic well-being among women— healthy and active Filipinas— that we can achieve a healthy and active Philippines. We further define a “GO GIRL!” as a well rounded Filipina who balances life, work , play, adventure, sports and more importantly – knows how to have fun.
GO GIRL! EXPO will be held on May 30-31, 2015 at Rockwell Tent, Makati City. This event will be a celebration of every Filipina’s pursuit and women’s success and empowerment in different fields. The expo will feature faces of healthy and active Filipinas from different walks of life- from the working Filipina to moms, from outgoing women to social women. Furthermore, the expo will be a collection of products and services from different companies and industries who cater to the needs of a healthy and active Filipina.
The expo will also be an avenue for women’s inspiration—tapping Filipinas who are considered “Go Girl!”. These women will share their impassioned stories of both success and struggle, how they got to where they are now, and what keeps them active despite the daily routine this age has to offer. Their stories will be shared via different platforms at the event.
GO GIRL! EXPO is co-presented by GET GO- The Lifestyle Rewards Program of Cebu Pacific. This event is sponsored by Ever Bilena, OLX.ph, Bo’s Coffee, Zalvaje Eyegear, Sappe Beauti Drink, EasyShop.ph, Belle De Jour Power Planner, Dan’s, Lifthard Philippines, Fitness Gourmet, Fitness First, O2 Space Solutions and FiliSUP.
