After Filipinos voted for their chosen leaders in the previous midterm elections, KidZania Manila citiZens were also able to cast their votes in an election where 14 children emerged as the new CongreZZ representatives.
The CongreZZ reps take on leadership roles to help the play city work towards a better world.
Senator Francis Pangilinan joined the induction of Happy Aguilar, Kim Amarille, Kate Amarille, Patricia Balatbat, Liz Castigo, Riley Catral, Gian Cera, Juhi Chandiramani, Angela de Guzman, Renz Emperador, Jiada Javier, Kian Jimenez, Jillian Salinas, and Andrea Sta. Maria as the new CongreZZ Kids.
“Each of you is a winner. True victory comes when you cooperate with other leaders to reach your shared goals,” said Sen. Pangilinan during the children’s inauguration rites.
KidZania Manila Governor Cookie Bartolome stressed the important role of the newly elected kids. She said, “As a CongreZZ member, you are also a servant leader. It is your duty now not just to listen to other kids but to be their voice that affects change. We are aiming to build a better world and it starts here at KidZania Manila.”
Representing the play city’s legislative branch, these CongreZZ Kids, ages 8 to 15 years old, will discuss trends that affect their generation, exchange ideas and opinions, and hone their leadership skills during their three-year term.
Together they will apply lessons and learnings in real life, and share their passions and talents as they work for the welfare of KidZania Manila and its CitiZens, in line with the “Generation KidZania: Kids building a better world” campaign.
The 14 representatives will also get to try new jobs at KidZania Manila, grace special events, connect with other CongreZZ Kids from other KidZania facilities in other countries, and participate in other KidZania programs as the play city’s official ambassadors.
