Here’s a copy of my speech / talk last Kawaii in Manila 2!
It’s about my personal dream, our dreams turned achievements in Kawaii PH, and how we plan to change the world with kawaii. ^_^
I will be just copy-pasting everything! ^_^
I love you Anne Kate! <3
Good afternoon everyone, my name is Kaila Ocampo, and I am the founder of Kawaii Philippines.
Later on, my co-founder Anne will join me on stage as we present to you our humble achievements and crazy dreams about spreading and sharing kawaii here in the Philippines.
I will start this short presentation with a story.
A story of a girl who just dreamt about Japan.
A girl who has so much passion about sharing kawaii.
And you guessed that right.. that girl is…. me.
I’m sure that many can relate here because we all have dreams.
Lahat po tayo ay may pangarap. Ang pangarap ko po dati ay pumuntang Japan. 10 years or so later, minsan feeling ko, nangangarap pa rin ako. Too good to be true.
I just wanted to see Japan in my own eyes. I’m sure marami makaka-relate dito.
Mahilig po kasi ako manood ng Cardcaptor Sakura dati.
Siya po ang hero ko nung bata ako, feeling ko sana maging katulad ako ni Sakura, forever carefree at parang always “trying her best in everything”.
Watching anime and imagining myself to be in the same place with these “gambatteru hito” girls made me hope and dream big.
