(L-R) The author, Yvette Tan, Ramon De Veyra, Philbert Dy

Over the last three months I’ve been working on a lifestyle website for the modern Filipino man: Manifesto. It’s about time the Philippines had a go-to site for men and Manifesto fills that void. Now that we’ve launched the website I can talk more about it. Ramon De Veyra is the editor-in-chief who invited me to be part of the editorial team. I handle the style and money sections. Yvette Tan for women, Philbert Dy for culture and sports, with Adel Gabot for tech.

Unilever Philippines is the company behind Manifesto. They have a huge stake in the men’s personal grooming segment in the country and want to grow this segment of the market even more. I’ve always believed that Filipino men can do better in terms of personal style and grooming and Manifesto allows me to reach a wider audience. It’s a huge honor to be part of something big and I’m glad I got the opportunity to do so.
