I think that John Robert Powers have a lot of things that people need-something that is really helpful or important to them. It talks about how to stand, how to sit, how to eat, how to groom, how to achieve, how to get rid of nervousness or shyness, how to remove negative stuff that we have, how to gain more friends, how to read to the audiences, and how to have good posture. It was a new experience for me.

Last July 2015, my mom told me that she found a workshop that can help my English speaking ability. I felt very excited because I really want to improve my English. Back then, I got bullied because my wrong pronunciation of words and wrong grammar. I started to hate myself. My self-esteem became low and I was not confident to face other people because I always remember the hurtful words that my classmates said to me. So, when I studied here in JRP, I became a strong and a friendly person. I gained confidence and I can now easily talk to the other people. I can easily make friends with them. I love the improvement in me, not just physically but mentally.

Before attending John Robert Powers, I thought that I was already content with my self-image and how I behaved in social situations. After taking my classes, I realized that I still have so much more to improve on just like the basic etiquette that isn’t taught in school.

There’s a saying by Brian Tracy: “Move out of your comfort zone. You cannot grow if you’re not willing to feel awkward when trying something new.” Joining JRP was definitely out of my comfort zone. I wouldn’t normally want to join anything that involves me speaking in large groups. Because it was already summer, I was thinking of some activities to do and I thought to myself, “There’s no better time to try something new than now.” After that, I quickly told my parents what I wanted to do and I have never regretted it since then. I remember feeling sick to my stomach on my first day in JRP. I was so nervous and scared but also excited to learn something new. I guess one of the things to look forward to everyday was seeing my classmates. At first, we were all very awkward to one another but just after one class, we got the chance to talk with one another and be more familiar with each other. It was exciting to have met new friends and learn together. In joining JRP, one of my objectives was being able to present myself better. I wanted to grow as well as develop more of my personality and be the best version of myself that I can be. The classes indeed were able to help me achieve all of those. I didn’t really expect to enjoy the classes as much as I did. Even though we had to present and speak in front of a large audience, it was actually fun. I became more comfortable facing a large audience. Of course, the classes wouldn’t be the same without the wonderful teachers. Each of them usually tells us stories that would inspire us to strive harder in becoming the best that we could be. They were all different, and that’s what makes them irreplaceable. I took a step and tried something new, and I never looked back.

I became more confident than I was before enrolling at John Robert Powers. It was a really fun experience for me because I met people whom I always treasure and consider family. At the same time, my teachers did a tremendous job in teaching me things I will never learn in school. The efforts of my teachers to keep the class fun are never wasted because it was truly a memorable experience. I have learned who I truly am through John Robert Powers.

Before JRP, I was shy and not confident with myself. JRP helped me come out of my shell and show all of my potentials as a person. JRP helped me accept and respect my physical and mental state. After JRP, I can say that I’m much more confident with myself.

Ateneo, 1st Year College

Life is a rollercoaster. The previous years, I don’t exactly know what I’m capable of doing. I would compare myself to others. In short, I think low of myself. With the help of my family and friends, I discovered a whole new person inside me. I am able to help those who have problems and inspire them. It led me to know my capabilities. John Robert Powers has positively contributed in a way that I’ve met new friends and discover the path I am about to take in the future. Also they have taught me to believe in myself and never doubt my strengths and learn from my mistakes.

I’ve changed a lot and thanks to JRP. I’ve changed for the better. I’m more comfortable showing who I really am and I’m happier with who I am. I can now see things for myself that I wouldn’t even imagine before. I have a long road ahead of me and what I’ve learned will surely help me.

It is fun in JRP. It made me gain new experiences and new knowledge about communicating and about self-confidence.

Meridian, Grade 9

Long before, I wanted to improve my personality aside from my academics. When I entered JRP last December 2015, I was excited of what I was about to learn. I learned in the sessions about personality, image, communication, and social graces. The classes were interesting and had a creative and detailed way of teaching. My instructors are also very kind and helped me improve a lot. They also answered all of my questions correctly and in detail. After the program, I learned a lot more on personality and it had a great impact on me. I exude more social graciousness and improved my image as well as my communication skills. It will also help me be a better person and can even make me have the qualities of a good leader.

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.
