CEU Part of Gary V’s Campus TED Talk Series

Centro Escolar University was visited by Mr. Gary Valenciano not just as a performer but also as a motivational speaker as part of his campus TED Talk on January 29, 2020 at the LAH Seminar Rooms 2 and 3 in CEU Manila.

As the multi-talented artist celebrated his 35th year in the entertainment industry last year, he decided to hop on 35 colleges and universities around the country to deliver inspiring messages while also singing meaningful songs in between.

Mr. Valenciano shared with the Escolarian student-leaders his life experiences, struggles and personal encounter with God. 

“What really impacted me during Mr. Gary V’s talk was when he said that sometimes things may not work the way we want it and it will feel like everything is against us. We may not always succeed and win but we have to always remember that it is not the happiness and victory that should keep you going, but faith”, said Caloy Carranceja, University Student Council President when asked what insights he gained from the talk. 

The event was made possible through the coordination of the Student Affairs Office headed by Dr. Carlito Olaer, Vice President for Student Affairs and with the assistance of the University Student Council. Mr. Gary Valenciano made a courtesy call to CEU President Dr. Ma. Cristina Padolina before proceeding to his talk.
