Converse Universe: Start From The Bottom

There’s no dismissing the incredible power of today’s youth as millennials are bold, inspired and willing to take on the path less travelled. They are fearless.

They make a difference, because they are different – in mind, spirit and outlook. While others believe that results are achieved by conforming, these rebels think it’s done by shaking up the status quo.

Here we take a look at three inspiring millennials who are flipping the script and defining their own path, embodying the full rebellious spirit of Converse.

Kiana Valenciano

Kiana hails from showbiz royalty but she doesn’t let this get to her head. She hasn’t allowed it to weigh her down either, especially with the pressure of living up to the name. Instead, she’s stepping out of the shadows of her famous father, and is boldly and confidently making a name for herself as a singer, songwriter and performer. “There’s so much I wanna do. I wanna do this; I wanna do that. And at 25, and I’m just getting started,” she says.

Lauren Reid

Her famous half-brother may have made it first in the showbiz limelight, but Lauren Reid is fast catching up as the new “it” girl. Bold, unapologetic and  outspoken, Lauren breaks the mold of the timid Filipina by making her voice heard. "Be yourself, enjoy what you do, ignore any negativity that comes your way, because, in the end, it's all not important. Be true to yourself."



Ryle Santiago

Ryle Santiago is a triple threat. He can sing, dance and act.  And as a member of the dance group Hashtags, Ryle is making his way not only to the small screen, but into the hearts of audiences across the country, charming them with his wit, attitude impressive dance moves. “I’m young so I want to try everything – concert, movies, tours. There’s nothing holding me back.”
