John Robert Powers has created a great impact in my life. Before I was enrolled here, I had a low self- confidence and slightly low self-esteem. There are moments in my life when I keep doubting myself and that keeps me from achieving certain goals I want to achieve. After spending my whole summer here, I discovered a lot of things I didn’t know about myself and my surroundings. I now understand it takes courage, patience, and trust in myself before I can finally achieve the achievable. So, I’m taking things slowly, step-by-step. This way, I’m able to have more confidence with myself piece by piece.

Before summer began, my mom informed me about JRP and encouraged me to join in order to improve my way of dressing, confidence, and the way I speak. Before, I’d always dress in T-shirts and pants or shorts to go with a pair of rubber shoes. My confidence was really low and I would always degrade myself. When I speak, my voice gets too low, squeaky, and I’d talk too fast and stumble on my words. But now, just finishing from Level 5, I have greatly improved on my way of dressing because I’ve u-turned from jeans and shorts to skirts, t-shirts to dresses or blouses and shoes to heels or flats. I don’t downgrade myself anymore because I believe that there’s only one me in this world and it would be such a waste to put myself to waste when I can provide much for the improvement of everything around me. The best of all, I believe I’m starting to speak more clearly and slowly. Reaching my goals to improve will take time but it’s something worth waiting for.

I believe that JRP has made me improve myself. I feel that I can be more open to people. I can speak clearly, and can even deliver speeches. I started to care on how I look and what I wear most days. JRP showed me that I can still improve myself and that I still have a lot to learn about myself and in what I can do.

John Robert Powers made me realize a lot of things. I realized that I always had the potential to do many things that I thought I couldn’t. “Self-confidence comes from within,” I was told. The only thing that’s stopping me from doing things is because I always told myself that I couldn’t. I learned that looking good and presentable on the outside will help me look and feel confident, which is true. People will look up to me and think I’m confident and intelligent. My point is, as long as you believe in yourself, you can do wonders. I’d like to thank JRP for making me realize that.

After finishing my first level of JRP last year, many complimented me on significant changes on how I look and act. Now, I believe I have improved even more. My former fear of public speaking is fading away. I walk and talk confidently. I learned more about myself and how I can be the best me. Originally, my mom had to convince me a lot to join JRP. Now, I’m sincerely glad I took my chance. The experience is truly worthwhile.

This is my second year in JRP. I came here because my parents convinced me to. I really didn't like the idea of coming back here because I wanted to spend my time having fun instead of having classes. During classes, I could see myself becoming more sociable and more approachable. As of now, I don't see much improvement in myself but I know that a lot of progress will happen after I start applying what I've learned these past two weeks.

I was a typical boyish teenager. T-shirt, jeans, and sneakers were my everyday style. Boy walk and posture was my thing. I was very comfortable in my way of living. However, being in JRP made me start being conscious about my appearance. This was the start of my pre-adult years. The whole world might not accept me in my style if I were to be in the business world. JRP helped me realize these things. Dressing appropriately for specific occasions and presenting myself with dignity are the things JRP taught me so much.

Malayan High School of Science Personality Development Program Level III student

Enrolling in JRP helped me a lot in attaining my goals as a college student. After completing my program, I realized that I am definitely going to miss a lot if I am not going to step out of my box. I learned that I should do things my way to be able to enjoy the things that I do.

Before entering John Robert Powers, I know for sure that I was a scared girl. I was scared of the meaning of life and the things people expect me to be / do. I was so scared all the time that I’d constantly get anxiety attacks at least 6x a week, even for the pettiest reasons. My self-esteem was so low because of this that is why my mother persuaded me to join this program. Now, I am thankful for the people I’ve met and for the experiences I had. After entering JRP, I can say that I am more open to opportunities given to me and that I am aware of what I want and what I want to achieve in life.

Immaculate Conception Academy Grade II

As an individual, I have always yearned for self-improvement. I do not dream about success and having great amount of money but rather I dream about growth. When my mother told me about John Robert Powers and what they do there, I wanted to enroll myself. Hence, one Wednesday morning, I had my first session in JRP. It was an amazing opportunity. I was lucky enough to have experienced it. In the succeeding sessions, different certified instructors and coaches shared tips and knowledge on the four pillars of the JRP Personality Development Program. The sessions opened my eyes to what each pillar really means and how important each one is. As I end my first experience in JRP, I am filled with new practices that I can change into good habits, which will then hopefully lead me to the best version of myself.

John Robert Powers has helped me grow as a person and realize my weaknesses and strengths. I’ve learned so much in only 2 weeks and I’ve been very satisfied with it. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here at JRP and I will definitely use and apply what I’ve learned here starting today.

PD Level I (Teens) Poveda Grade 9 Student

Before I enrolled in JRP, I was painfully shy. It was very difficult for me to talk to people that I didn’t know or could relate to. I also wasn’t aware of the mannerisms and gestures that didn’t help project a good image of myself. After I finished my program, I found it a lot easier to talk to other people, I am not as shy as I was before and I am now fully aware of the things that I can do to improve myself as a person. I am much happier now than I used to be before I enrolled in JRP.
