The newest squad to watch out for
Seven fresh faces come together to challenge youth stereotypes and inspire today’s young generation. These millennials are known for being the face of several brands and various films and television shows, they are popular for being cool and aspirational, and they each have inspirational stories about resilience and perseverance.
And they are going to be your new #squadgoals.
Hashtag member and actor Ronnie Alonte, young actresses Loisa Andalio and Sofia Andres, Pinoy Big Brother heartthrob Tanner Mata, international model Tyler Mata, Spanish model Emilio Francisco Perez, and Brazilian model and former PBB Teen housemate Maria Fabiana comprise the new youth group #ClubPenshoppePH.
#ClubPenshoppePH is a diverse group of young personalities who will serve as Penshoppe’s brand ambassadors in the Philippines.
“[Each member of #ClubPenshoppePH] has their own personal style, and each has inspiring stories that the youth can relate to,” says Penshoppe brand director Jeff Bascon.
Bascon adds, “They are far from being perfect, which makes them likable even more. They may be misunderstood at times, but what I really like about them is each of them is really fighting for their dreams—to be successful, to be able to do good, to inspire other people.”
The seven members of #ClubPenshoppePH admit that there was awkwardness when they first met and worked together—much like in most cases. But Sofia says they eventually became comfortable around each other after quite some time.
Tanner seconds, adding they had a good connection and hit it off after the first time they've worked together. The Fil-Am model reveals it was the first time he worked with his twin brother Tyler in one project.
