Young STAR asked us what influences cool people to make cool work and here's our answer!
Saying that inspiration can come from everywhere is not just a cliché. Sometimes it strikes unexpectedly like lightning; sometimes it’s scheduled, like a visit to an exhibit. Our lives are fueled by things that bring us joy.
To celebrate The Philippine STAR’s 31st anniversary, we asked some of our faves about their inspiration. Whether it’s the professors we grew up with, the art we are surrounded by or a recent TV binge-watch, we are constantly surrounded by things that will help us move forward into our better selves. And there’s no better way to celebrate our anniversary than commemorating the people and things that make us who we are today.
“What keeps us going are those small votes of confidence from the people we meet through ilya. Like that lovely couple who shared how we helped embolden them to finally get their first toy, and how happy they were when they did. We never imagined that we’d be able to affect people that much!” — Arvin Alvarez and AJ Osmeña of ilya
