There's something about learning sessions that attract us, much like a moth to the flame (sans the disastrous end, of course). Growing up in a household where Mom was an English Literature teacher who was known to have lovingly terrorized her students back in her heydays made us appreciate continuing education more, and now that we move within the wedding industry, it's not a surprise that we'd end up supporting awesome learning activities like the Firestarter.
Lisa of Jeff & Lisa Photography, co-founder of this endeavor, first broached this idea to us last year and now that we're on our second year together with other partners & sponsors, we're very happy to know that this activity continues to inspire so many young people to keep doing what they're doing, not because they need to, but because they want to. Inspiration is a wonderful thing. As Eleanor Roosevelt puts it, it's doing one thing that scares you - every day. It truly is a leap of faith.
We at Vatel Manila are proud to be a part of this wonderful workshop. Here's to more years of rekindling flames & starting fires!
Much Love, Dylan
