Empowered Women Rule on TikTok

March is National Women’s Month in the Philippines, a special occasion celebrated in honor of International Women’s Day. During this month-long event, we recognize the achievements made by notable Filipinas and women worldwide, as well as the steps they have taken to promote change and raise awareness for issues that truly matter.  

In recent years, social media has become a platform for many of these empowered ladies to spread their advocacies. Through this, they have found a way to get their messages across to a wider range of people. Social media has also allowed them to build and nurture online communities that uplift and provide support for other women all around the globe. 

Indeed, there is no limit to what an empowered woman is capable of doing. This Women’s Month, in honor of all the strong, inspirational females we look up to, we’ve rounded up some of the best videos from empowered women on TikTok. Check them out to see the many qualities that make these women absolutely amazing. 

Confidence is power
One common trait possessed by every powerful woman is confidence. Having a strong sense of self, and faith in their own abilities enables these women to rise up and pursue their dreams. Two stellar examples of women of confidence are Zozibini Tunzi and Catriona Grey, who have both worn the crown of Miss Universe. 

Being beautiful inside and out, their self-assurance shines through as a perfect complement to their physical beauty. These women are queens in their own right, who have used their time in the spotlight to break boundaries, and advocate for equality, inclusion, and women’s rights.

An empowered woman embraces her quirks
There is beauty in imperfection, and a woman who is able to embrace her quirks can definitely be considered empowered. A positive attitude like this can uplift others, and inspire them to accept and love themselves as they are.

Local celebrities like Jodi Sta. Maria, Bela Padilla and Isabelle Daza are not afraid to show their quirky self online, making them more relatable and endearing to their followers. Their videos on TikTok show that these women have the ability to not take things too seriously, and remember to enjoy life amidst any challenges they might face.

A talented woman is an empowered one
When people use their talents for good, they are able to make an impact on others, touch lives, and even drive positive change. We see this clearly in actors, musicians, athletes, and personalities who have gained global recognition in what they do, and are considered to be role models. These empowered individuals help shape the future by inspiring the youth to aim high and reach for the stars. 

Two examples of empowered and talented individuals are artists, Donnalyn Bartolome and Alicia Keys. Their music has made waves in the local scene and abroad, and both women are true icons who bring joy to their fans.

BRATS (Boy R. Abunda Talk Series) is holding another interesting round of sharing life stories from guest speakers on July 25

Following its successful launch last month, BRATS (Boy R. Abunda Talk Series) is holding another interesting round of sharing life stories from guest speakers, interacting with the audience and delivering inspiring message from Boy Abunda on July 25, 7 p.m., at the Satin Room 2 of Seda Vertis North.

BRATS will focus on the topic about Mental Health in an aim to encourage people to speak up about their own experiences and share their points of view with individuals who may be struggling to explain what they are going through. According to, Mental Health includes our emotional, psychological and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others and make choices. If one experiences mental health problems, his thinking, mood and behavior could be affected.

Just recently, news involving the suicide deaths of fashion designer Kate Spade and chef, author and TV host Anthony Bourdain shocked the world. The cause of the disheartening act was linked to depression. No one knew what was going through inside of them days or even hours before they cut their lives short.

What's best for any individual is to never be ashamed to openly talk about how he/she feels and share what goes through the mind to identify early on the source of the problem.

As what Boy said in his BRATS opening remarks, people need to talk to each other. "We need to touch each other's lives. We need to listen to each other. We are in a wired generation. One of our goals is to go back to the basics. To enjoy laughter, aspirations and conversations. And it should be experienced live."

In BRATS: Mental Health, guest speakers Miss International 2016 Kylie Versoza, actress and model Jasmine Curtis Smith, actress and screen writer Bela Padilla,  NGO advocate Quennie Maravillas  and student Nykko Bautista are ready to share their own stories with the audience and listen to what anyone wants to say without the need to ask for anybody's permission.

Celebrating Bela Padilla's birthday for a cause

Up-and-coming actress, Bela Padilla shared that she doesn’t usually celebrate her birthday but thought it would be a great way to bring people together for a cause. Making clear her affinity for animals, Bela chose to spend her birthday with the shelter dogs and animals at the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) in Quezon City, where she took part in a feeding activity together with her loyal “Belaver” fans.

“We picked PAWS as a venue for my birthday because I am strongly against animal cruelty. Being a pet owner myself, I have this deep compassion for animals,” Bela said. She wants to spread awareness about the plight of homeless and abused animals, and thought that bringing people to PAWS is her own little way of helping out.

Bela’s birthday celebration was spent with two of the things closest to her heart: animals and Japanese food as Tempura Japanese Grill happily sponsored the young star’s birthday treat.
“I’m surprised and so happy when I found out that Tempura sponsored the catering because I love eating there. I’m always at the Trinoma branch because it’s near our place and I just can’t get enough of Uncle Sam’s maki,” Bela shared. She expressed enthusiasm and excitement when asked if she sees herself representing and advocating for animal rights in the future. “I would be honored if PAWS would pick me to do a campaign because I really want to share my compassion for animals,” she said. As for Tempura, Bela said that she wouldn’t think twice because Japanese cuisine is her favorite. “I would love to. A lifetime supply of Tempura is like, the best thing I could have in my life,” she quipped.
