TOLEDO CITY, CEBU—The energy was high as 296 Carmen Copper scholars from the 17 barangays of Toledo City gathered to learn about Millennial Leadership during the first Carmen Copper Scholars Congress.
The Scholars Congress aimed to develop leadership traits and practical life skills to the Carmen Copper scholars.
“Carmen Copper is committed to actively raising the quality of life for each of you,” said Carmen Copper assistant vice president Ignacio Alburo. “We want all of you to achieve your full potential and reach your dreams so you will have a brighter future.”
Topics tackled during the congress include issues confronting millennials today, such as the pressures of social media, digital technology, peer pressure, emotional intelligence, leadership and finding one’s identity and path.
“We learned so much about how to survive university life by handling stress, peer pressure, depression and the threats arising from social media. The exercises helped us learn more about ourselves, our priorities and the path we want to take,” said Leon Abella, a 4th year Bachelor of Science in Mining Engineering student at Cebu Institute of Technology-University.
