“Keep Walking Philippines recognizes the ambition that sparked the great journeys of ordinary individuals we now consider modern-day heroes,” shares historian and campaign consultant Ambeth Ocampo. “Being a hero doesn’t always require grand gestures, but rather the ability to inspire and provoke others to dream and make the world better.”

All around us are ordinary individuals whose journey to personal progress began with ambition. The stories of Xyza Bacani, former overseas domestic worker turned internationally acclaimed photographer and NYU scholar despite financial limitations; Aisa and Raphael Mijeno of SALt who created an alternative power supply for local communities using salt water amidst the lack of resources; and Brillante Mendoza, the Cannes-winning filmmaker who continues to reinvent Philippine cinema though often criticized for his choice of subject matter, were recognized for becoming our inspiration to stretch the limits of our ambition.
