4 Empowered Women Who Will Inspire You To Do What You Love

Women empowerment? Look no further.

We said it before and we’re saying it again: There is nothing a woman can’t do.

Gone are the days when women are expected to stay at home and do “household chores” just because society think that’s what they can only do best. We have extended the borders and blurred the lines on what women can and cannot do, and to say the very least, women are nailing the game whether it’s raising a child, closing deals in the market, or planning the next big thing on social media.

Thanks to the fast-paced technological innovation, learning and growing our skills have never been easier. Like how there are many faces to a woman, there are different hats they can wear for their multiple interests—all at the same time. Just one click on the internet, and there goes a whole new world of online courses you can choose from!

In the Philippines, that world is offered by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) through their TESDA Online Program (TOP). TOP is a free online resource for Technical-Vocational (Tech-Voc) skills you can learn anytime, anywhere!

Wonder what career opportunities can your Tech-Voc skills lead you? Let this (fantastic) four women tell you what it’s like to wear multiple hats with Tech-Voc skills you can learn for yourself:

 

Marian Rivera-Dantes

You might’ve seen Marian Rivera-Dantes on TV conquer life on land as MariMar, explore the open seas as Dyesebel, or fly up in the sky as Darna, but have you seen her prepare and design a beautiful bouquet of flowers?

Last 2017, this Spanish-Filipino actress put up her own online flower shop called “Flora Vida by Marian.” Out of her fascination and love for flowers, she took classes in Japan to learn flower arrangements and let her passion do the rest.

If you have a heart for floristry and a green thumb to match, you might want to take an online course in agriculture and entrepreneurship!

What TOP course can you take?

  • Fruit Grower
  • Managing Your Personal Finances
  • STAR OnlineTraining Program

Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo

We’re calling it. Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo a.k.a. Juday will take the world by storm—one recipe at a time! And if you’ve spent time online long enough, you might just agree with us.

This multi-awarded actress and host just added another role on her ~already~ full plate of being a wife to Ryan Agoncillo and a mom to her three bundles of joy Yohan, Lucho, and Luna: having her own Youtube channel “Judy Ann’s Kitchen!”

From breakfast to dinner (plus midnight snack), Juday shares her tasty recipes and expert cooking tips with a pinch of life lessons and a dash of her signature sense of humor. For sure, every video will leave you full and wanting for more!

Do you want to cook like a pro like Juday? There are online courses to prep you for that!

What TOP course can you take?

  • Cookery
  • Food and Beverages Servicing

Joyce Pring

The time has come for badass women to take on the wheels, and Joyce Pring came in all suited up! More famously known as MYX’s VJ Joyce, this TV and radio host takes racing seriously. While she is admittedly new to the racetrack (imagine learning to drive manual just in time for her first race!!), she proves women aren’t just meant to be in the backseat but can totally shift the gears too!

Did we mention Joyce won the best new driver award in the Toyota Vios Cup and beat the likes of Derek Ramsey and Fabio Ide? Yup, we just did!

Learning how to drive and fixing cars ain’t a “boy thing.” Get your ride all tuned up by taking online courses in automotive ASAP.

What TOP course can you take?

  • Automotive Battery Servicing
  • Diesel Engine Tune Up

Solenn Heusaff

If you aren’t convinced that women can wear multiple hats at the same time, then you must’ve not heard of Solenn Heusaff just yet. This multi-hyphenate Filipino-French woman is an actress, singer, host, fashion designer, professional make-up artist, and painter in one. (read: how is this even possible)

While most of her roles are celebrated in the entertainment media with her “It girl” persona, the latter comes as a surprise for most people. As an accomplished painter, Solenn already held art galleries with paintings inspired by people she met from all around the world. To even add to her already impressive list of accomplishments, she also designed her own furniture collection!

Want to learn a thing or two about beauty and design? There are online courses ready to give you a hand for that!

What TOP course can you take?

  • Animation (3D Digital)
  • Beauty Care Services

In this day and age, there is no limit to what women can learn and do. Thanks to online courses and all our women #inspos like Marian, Juday, Joyce, and Solenn, we can envision a future where women empowerment isn’t so much of a goal anymore but rather a standard we live by. And you? You can start living an empowered life NOW by maximizing your learning opportunities online. There’s so much to learn!
