Last Sunday, June 24, 2018, Sun Life Financial organized a Financial Awareness forum #SunLifeFunday in Ayala Center Cebu. It was hosted by Sun Life Trainer and Pop District Bazaar host Jett Pe and Miss Cebu 2011 and ABS-CBN TV personality Mia Ali, Let’s Have Some FUNds also featured musical performances by Jacky Chang, Bethany, and Mandaue Nights.
Three of Cebu’s brightest personalities come together to share how one can pursue his passion while also enjoying financial freedom.
Spectrum “partypreneur” and Rhipstop CEO Kaz Onozawa partnered by Sun Life Regional Sales Managers Margaret Bernardo shared “Money After Graduation” in which he tackled the struggle of fresh graduates on finding a job and the struggles of balancing finances. Giving us a glimpse of the real and harsh world of adulting! He was partnered with Sun Life Trainer Danah Mae Latonio, whose story is very inspiring. I can deeply relate to her as I was like her, a very frugal girl.
Architect and Blind Clothing owner Kathrynn Dawn Sy partnered by Sun Life Regional Sales Managers Margaret Bernardo shared “Girls Just Wanna Have Funds”. It was very empowering as sometimes girls don’t have to say when it comes to finances. We just need to take the risk and put action to it.
The third topic was shared by Sugbo Mercado partner and marketing and communications manager Karlo Lim partnered by another Sun Life Regional Sales Manager Michael Gustilo who shared “Money Under 30” which basically talks about having passive income and let money do the work for you. Making money your slave.
My favorite topic was the second one of course, who doesn’t want to have FUNDS while having FUN, right?
Finance is one of the hardest topic every struggling adulting faces. Each adulting man and woman is battling war between YOLOing or preparing for the future. This event made me realize that at some point I’m adulting just fine but there is still a lot to learn.
