Tell us, CGs: How many local languages can you speak? With more than 7,000 islands in the archipelago, each with its own culture and tongue, it’s hard not to find yourself lost in your own country sometimes.
We totally get it. Those of us born in Tagalog areas like Manila and its surrounding provinces are likely fluent in Tagalog and English, which is impressive in its own right. However, those born with a different native tongue are likely fluent in at least three languages, if you count their native language.
But what happens when we put together CGs with different native tongues in one room? Will they be able to understand each other despite the language barrier? Watch this:
That said, the differences in language do not necessarily prevent us from sharing the same experiences. Regardless of region, many women feel that they're not in control of how they want to express themselves, especially when it comes to their hair. Even the slightest change in hair length or color can lead to negative comments in and out of social media.
This is where Dove’s #MyHairMySay campaign comes in. Just in time for National Women's Month, the brand tapped women from different regions to come out with their own experiences and share how they were able to finally overcome negative comments about their hair. With this campaign, Dove hopes to make women feel empowered to stand by their personal choices, hairstyle or not, despite whatever negative comment anyone else has to say.
