I was that shy kid back in high school. I was a total wallflower. I didn’t know how to handle the challenges at home, school, social groups, and my own personal life so it reflected on me. After graduating from high school, I did what I can to improve and I’ve been wanting to break free from whatever that was blocking me mentally. So, I discovered this and it helped me realize that self-awareness and balance is the key to a happier life.

All the classes are helpful especially the voice communication, visual poise, power dressing, etiquette, etc. The facilities and the instructors are also great. My top 3 facilitators are Ms. Ducky, Mr. Mark, and Ms. Shaila.

I started JRP because my parents said that I needed it. I, too, said that I needed it so I enrolled in JRP. On my first day, I was actually bored with my first two classes because of the teacher. He was too sarcastic and not funny but he was trying hard to be funny. As the days went by, I met new teachers and became close with my classmates. I started having fun, learning new things and getting closer with friends. It helped me in my social skills by making me comfortable with people and asking us to speak in front of each other. It also helped me in my posture because before JRP I had a hunch at my back but now, I walk with a straight body and with confidence.

I took up the courage to change myself since I’ve been a boyish girl since I was little. I had short hair and sometimes, people mistaken me for a boy. Even if my interests until now are sports like football or other boyish stuff like martial arts, I wanted to be more feminine. I didn’t have problems talking to people since I could speak English and Filipino well and maybe I’m also naturally not an awkward talker to anyone. I was “one of the boys” kind of girl back in high school since I met a lot of friends in Ateneo Football Center. Before, I never cared about how to dress well or even to think about what I should wear since they know what will suit me but I thought this couldn’t go on forever especially when I’ll be in DLSU that doesn’t have a uniform. I started wearing flats and dresses in my second year in DLSU which was an improvement from my shirt, pants, chucks, and jacket outfit. People also noticed those changes and I was happy. Now, since I’ll be entering graduate school, I’m confident how I’ll carry myself in front of others. How I should talk, act, etc. because I’ve learned a lot from John Robert Powers.

Two of the greatest obstacles in my life are my lack of self-confidence and my lack of fluency in speaking English. I was not very confident too when it comes to socializing. John Robert Powers helped me improve these aspects in my young life in ways that other educational institutions cannot do. JRP also gave me the chance to meet new friends around my age group, making me feel more determined and open to initiate conversations outside of my usual circle of friends.

JRP helped me believe in myself more. I realized that for other people to appreciate me, I must first appreciate myself because I am a unique individual. Also, I realized that I am worthy of love and appreciation, and the most important thing in my life is for me to accept who I really am for other people to accept me.

My journey here in JRP has been great and happy. I met new friends and share stories with them. I am inspired with my family and inspired to achieve my goals in life as I attend my classes. I am motivated to develop my skills and personality as I know that it will give me positive changes that would help me in my future journey and endeavors. Now, I am somehow more confident with myself and how I see life. With optimism and self-confidence, I know I can do more and I can excel in things that I want to do.

Taking classes at John Robert Powers, even for just one level, really helped me adjust as I changed universities. I was confident before, and I am even more confident with my abilities now.

John Robert Powers is a very effective institution in developing and exploring my personality. The program is very helpful in knowing oneself better, and it helps me find peace in some issues I have with myself. I hope to be able to return and take refresher courses as life is ever changing. With JRP, I am able to keep in touch with myself.

I’ve become more confident according to my friends in Assumption. They tell me that they don’t see me as a shy person and do not even notice traces of my shyness. Overall, my blockmates tell me that I’m not a shy person after all. I’ve become more active in my studies. I finally started reciting and participating in class activities. Most of my classmates now ask me to be the group reporter and some of my professors rely on me to answer questions in class when no one else knows the answer to their questions. Yes, I’m happier and I’ve never felt so alive. I can’t even remember the last time I’ve felt like this. After JRP, I really started to dream again and I finally started to develop my talents. Maybe one day, you’ll see me performing in Broadway if I play my cards right.

First and foremost, as I enter in this institution, I feel inferior and have low self-confidence that is why I initiated to enroll here in John Robert Powers. At first, I feel so nervous but as the time goes on, I felt so excited to wake up every morning and go to John Robert Powers because I want to learn and I enjoy because I have many friends already. I’ve learned a lot from this institution even though my stay here was short. Completing my Level III Personality Development program is a very big achievement for me because I learned from your institution. I imparted to my friends, my classmates, and to my siblings what I have learned here. It is a return of investment because the value of money that we spent is nothing compared to the value of knowledge that I have gained from JRP. Thank you so much. God bless!

John Robert Powers has helped me in a lot of ways especially on how I developed myself as a person. I have improved my manners. I now answer questions politely in a way that would not offend the person I’m communicating to. How I present myself to others has improved significantly. Most importantly, I now believe in myself that I can do it and have avoided saying , I can’t!
