In Focus: Meet These 9 Movers Who Take Girl Power To The Next Level!


by Mariel Abanes


The digital age brought us a slew of influencers that millennials look up to for anything #goals—style, beauty, life, squad. Name it, and we've got one and many more! That's why these modern-day role models have a big responsibility upon their shoulders, to look the part and to send a positive message with every post they make. People of all ages are on the look out for what they're up to, and thankfully, these girls exist who know all too well that each of us needs a lift from the daily grind.

With Globe's newest movement here in the Philippines called It's A Girl Thing, an event happening on November 18 that aims to inspire and unite young women, they recognize the importance of the impact digital influencers have on their audience. So bringing together nine girls who advocate on Girl Power is a way to push for this advocacy—that females all have a voice, no matter their age, race, and social status are. Meet these inspiring gals below!


1. Bethany Mota
