  • Great to see young people take their place on the grandest stage of all, the real world. Millennials are sometimes misunderstood, sometimes overbearing, what cannot be denied is that this world – they own it now.

  • This is so far the best campaign of Jollibee that I love. It highlights how good Filipinos are and the real pride of the Philippines. 🙂

  • These new ambassadors are young yet have proven their worth in their respective careers. Salute to Jollibee for recognizing these millennials!

  • There is a lot of stigma behind young people these days and it’s so nice to see 4th impact on stage, I watched their journey on X Factor and loved their enthusiasm. Although I’m not familiar with the other ambassadors I’m sure they’re all well deserving!

  • Congratulations and respect to all of them ! I love seeing young people having goals and dreams , and giving their all for it ! Working on your own future instead of hanging uselessly around all day , living on mummy’s and daddy’s bones and cash till the late thirties or so . Great to see motivation and determination … and most of all , the returns they are getting in recognition. Well done guys !

  • This GenY of millenials are awesome, being recognised at a young age. Congrats!

  • Congratulations to all of them! They’re really a good role model to every kid who also aims to achieve their goals and dreams someday. Kudos to Jollibee!

  • So inspiring to see the next generation stepping up and shining in their own chosen paths. It’s simply amazing. Also, kudos to Jollibee for recognizing them! 😀

  • I’m so happy seeing fresh faces!! Hooray for the new generation! Most of these young people worked hard to achieve their dreams so Hooray for Jollibee for recognizing the talents of each of these individuals And their hardwork!!
