November 23 is the International Image Consultant Day, and the AICI Philippine Chapter commemorate this special day to celebrate their success and the value they add to other people’s lives—especially women. This 2018, the Chapter celebrated #ImageDay with The Haven in Alabang.
The Haven is a temporary shelter and protective custody for women aged 18-59 years old who have been subjected to various forms of abuse. Through their programs and services, the shelter aims to help women heal from their trauma and lead better lives.
Hosted by Delbie Bragais, the event started with a 15-minute exercise led by the Chapter’s resident health buff, Carol Tan. Then, several talks were held to inspire and encourage the women at The Haven.
The first talk was by Ginny Villegas on “Feminine Genius”, which is based on Pope John Paul II’s teachings on women. This was followed by Toni Miranda’s inspiring testimony of her being “Broken to Beautiful”. Finally, Miriam Quiambao Roberto shared an motivational message entitled “Beloved: He Will Catch You When You Fall”.
Abby de Leon also held a hands-on session where she taught and demonstrated to the participants how to apply basic makeup and how to maintain proper hygiene. The event was culminated with catered lunch and a giveaway raffle.
