Young Adults

Coming from a public-service and business-oriented family, young as I were I have to have a deep value and understanding of community service and respect for the opinion of others that in the long run, without awareness, it has corrupted and tarnished my sense of self. The 'self' that I thought was is a product of fear – a worrisome feeling of being judged for doing things that I want and can do, pseudo-success-victories worked hard for just so they’ll have nothing negative to pine on and hostility-may become more of a passive and submissive individual.
JRP, however, made me realize that living in this world with should can be avoided- it is a choice that you have to want to make. Thus, in this process, I have come to find my real self; aware of my strengths and weaknesses. I have come to see my value and how I could help and inspire others to live their true authentic self, too.
From a mind full of queries and a heart palpitating so fast because of shyness and anxiety to an optimistic thinking and mindset and a gracious, open self and others-accepting heart, John Robert Powers has transformed me to who I am now and will surely be the foundation of who and what I’ll become. To date, it goes without saying that I have returned the 'self' to myself. And oh yes, public service is still my cup of tea.

John Robert Powers taught me how to be the best of myself. My facilitators also taught me how to be confident, how to look good with other people, and to socialize with everyone. They taught me to become the best Shaine I can be. Thank you, JRP!

Many thanks to John Robert Powers for helping me to pursue my dreams in life. I learned to become a better person, to dress up properly, to be confident, to also learn how to project myself in front of the camera, learned etiquette and manners and how to carry myself. I also learned to be more mature. I discovered new things and realized that “being yourself” is the key to success.

John Robert Powers has successfully molded me to become the best I can be. It is capable of unlocking the different kinds of potential each and every individual has. With this, I can say that JRP helped me discover my hidden talents and potentials.

JRP helped me to be confident and to express myself better. They helped me discover my potential and how to protect myself gracefully. They helped me to trust my abilities and myself in everything I do and do things passionately to the best of my abilities. They also taught me that people make their impressions regarding you by the way you talk, the way you stand, and the way you project yourself. That is why, it is important for one to cover all these bases to become the best version of oneself.

Before I discovered JRP, my life was really dull and I get too pressured because of friends. I don’t really open up even to my family, friends, and to my community. I prefer staying at home and watching them socialize because I am afraid of being judged by other. When I’m being judged, I get mad or get negative vibes. Because of JRP, I became the person I want to be and I’m not afraid of being judged. I learned to love myself in JRP.

Being in John Robert Powers is truly a blessed and humbling experience. From my shy and awkward appearance back in 2013 to a more confident self I am now, JRP had a huge role in my personal development. Through all of my intensive classes in JRP, they were able to hone me as a confident lady. Thank you to all my teachers and mentors for equipping me with the knowledge, skills, and experience to help me become better each day.

This all started out as an opportunity I saw that my summer schedule was free, and so, I decided to give JRP a try. I dared myself to go out of my comfort zone because this experience is definitely out of my shy and little-to-no confident character. Yet, despite all my new and interesting experience in learning how to do make-up and wardrobe, I saw how all the classes come together in harmony to make me realize how beautiful I am. There are too much things to say but if there’s one thing I can mention here, it’s this: I never regretted any decision to attend JRP for it definitely changed my perspective of my life, decision, and myself.

I started my classes in JRP two months ago and I can assure everyone that many things changed in myself as a whole. I remember on my first day, I planned to ditch the classes because of fear but thankfully, I didn’t. Visualization 1 was my first class in JRP, which helped me lessen my fear and it helped me get a much better view of myself. The next days until the next months, I have learned so much that I didn’t want to leave, not to mention the great people I met that I can consider as friends and very good persons. Before my classes in JRP, I considered myself “not normal”. (Ask me why.) Well, I considered myself not normal because I have a high-pitched voice and a small height. So, people always think of me as an elementary student even though I already graduated from high school. What JRP taught me is that we must accept our flaws and we must love them. Now, I know that I accept that I’m small. I know that God gave me this height for a reason. JRP also taught me how to improve my voice and project it well. I will continue to practice them until I reach my goal. I am really thankful to God because He let man create this school for those people who are in need. I know that God is smiling and happy for these people who helped in the development of every person they teach. Indeed, their time and effort will never go to waste. Godspeed!

John Robert Powers made me realize a lot of my potentials that I didn’t know I had. JRP encouraged me to be my better / best self and made me dream big.

Before entering John Robert Powers, I saw myself as the type of person who is socially awkward in situations where I do not know anyone. I remember sweating and having really cold hands while talking to a complete stranger. Knowing this, I knew I had to do something about it since college is about to start. I heard about John Robert Powers from my friend in high school and I was fascinated by the training one had undergone in JRP. When I heard this from her, I immediately wanted to enroll. However, I had no time to because of the upcoming college entrance tests. I waited until I got to college to tell my mom I wanted to enroll at JRP.Since the day my mom enrolled me, I know for myself how much I have changed as a person: from that socially awkward caterpillar to a not-so-awkward and social butterfly. I am so thankful to JRP for the training it has given me; training I will treasure and definitely use for the rest of my life.

I like all the classes. It was all helpful especially the Visualization, Voice Communication and wardrobe classes. All the facilitators are nice. I like the newly-renovated Quezon City branch.
