Moments in time
“Imagine us waiting for 2017, and all of a sudden comes 2016,” posits a meme that went viral just a few days before Christmas.
Many would attest that 2016 was the worst year since World War II, or even The Great Depression. Many of its issues were definitely exaggerated because of social media, but there was also plenty of false news that spread online like wildfire. Every day, it got harder to evaluate what was true from not, what was important and relevant from what wasn’t. Most of the time, we allow ourselves to succumb to popular agenda set by others. With our eyes glued to our screens almost 24/7, we are easily carried away by the wave of trends, whether true or false.
To start the new year, we’re not setting trends. Instead, we’re telling stories of people who already know their place in the universe. We’re taking cues from young entrepreneur Mike Concepcion, who tells us, “I’m motivated by the idea of doing something that has not been done before, sailing through uncharted waters to disrupt and innovate.” Environmentalist Marianna Vargas also tells us how she plans to save the world by doing her part, two sisters elevate a luxurious product into something even more raw and unique, and more inspiring stories in this month’s issue.
