Meeting the Promil gifted children of the 90s today
Meeting the Promil gifted children of the 90s Kiko Galura, James Flores and Shaira Luna made me nostalgic. I remember Shaira Luna from her Promil TV Commercial talking about cardiovascular at such a young age. I was amazed at how these kids grew up fast and established at their chosen career as well. Every parents want their kids to be like them or at least be as successful and contented at what these three young professional are doing today.
Promil nurtured giftedness by letting the media meet the 3 genius kids of the 90s in person last January 28 at Makati Shangri-la Isabela Ballroom with guests Joey Ayala and the Promil gifted children of this generation.
The Promil kids of the early 90s were all grown up now and second, their accomplishments as adults are just as impressive as what they were able to deliver as kids.
The young poet, Kiko Galura, has an established career as a publisher in one of the country’s biggest publishing houses. From making words come to life in his poems, he now provides an opportunity and a voice to other storytellers.
James Flores, who was known for his proficiency in astronomy stayed within the sciences, albeit in a different field, taking his masters in clinical psychology. From his love of the stars and their radiance, he helps bring out the brilliance in every child through outreach programs in music for children.
And finally, Shaira Luna, who was poised to enter into the medical world, grew up to become one of the most talented photographers of her generation. From her mastery of the human anatomy, she now captures the best in human form with her photography, building a successful career around her passion.
“A gifted child can be expected to learn faster than other children, have more varied interests, have greater depth of feeling and generally be more than other children,” explains Dra. Leticia Peñano-Ho, President of the Philippine Center for Gifted Education
To celebrate the current success of the gifted alumni, Promil Pre-School brought back together the famous trio, almost 20 years after their commercial first aired on national television. The brand’s heritage on giftedness is further exemplified through their achievements and their journey towards becoming valuable gifts to society.
“Throughout the years, Promil Pre-School has been encouraging parents to keep nurturing the gifts of their children. As we usher in a new year, we encourage others to become advocates of giftedness as well,” says Dian Yu, Product Manager of Promil Pre-School.
In 2015, Promil Pre-School is launching their Gifted Movement campaign, which is a movement to supporting and celebrating giftedness in the country. The brand aims to spark interest and gain the commitment of moms and consumers to take an active role in advocating giftedness and nurturing it.
