Charo tells Media Students: Good values matter at Pinoy Media Congress Year 9

Vidanes said balancing media work and one’s personal life requires a lot of hard work and sacrifice. Reyes said critical-thinking and passion is a must. Tin said it is a combination of having great skills and a good disposition and spirit. Dyogi, meanwhile, urged them to learn to tell good stories, which they can practice in their own families.

The delegates, some of them coming from as far as Baguio, Tacloban, and Cagayan de Oro, took to social media to express their satisfaction with the event, which also featured surprise performances from Kapamilya stars.

On Twitter, Ysabel Bonifacio tweeted “It was the best congress I have attended for this school year, while Majji Porcalla posted I feel so honored to be a part of the event. I learned a lot!”

Via Instagram, Jonah Garcia said “It was nice to hear it all from the professionals of the Communication Industry,” while Angelica Gallardo posted “We got the chance to hear the insights and experiences of the prominent people in the industry and we also got the chance to see artists perform.”

With another successful staging of the PMC, ABS-CBN Integrated Corporate Communications Division officer in charge Kane Errol Choa said the best is yet to come for Pinoy Media Congress.

"We are very happy to say that there’s a rise in the number of delegates every year. Were also honored that other institutions have come up with events similar to the PMC. With the partnership, ABS-CBN will continue to engage and educate students in the years to come to ensure a better and brighter media in the future for all of us.
