All the Exciting Things Lined up at It's a Girl Thing Year 2
All roads lead to Vertis Tent on Saturday, ladies!
Long months of waiting have led to this weekend. In just a few more days, It’s A Girl Thing makes its highly-anticipated return as it brings together international and local girl bosses to inspire, educate and empower teenage girls. That’s right, ladies: the largest girl power celebration of the year is back.
Brought to audiences by Globe Live and Branded (the co-producers of YouTube FanFest), It’s a Girl Thing Manila 2018 promises an even more jam-packed Saturday of fun, entertainment and empowerment. “We're giving teens the opportunity to embark on a journey of self-discovery in search of their dreams and to truly understand themselves with their favourite social stars. It will definitely be fun and educational at the same time,” shared Branded CEO Jasper Donat. This not only is the country’s only female-led festival, but a love letter to the next generation of Filipino women (it goes without saying that those lucky enough to have secured tickets to the now sold-out event are in for a treat).
The IAGT stage is set. 13 of today’s brightest, most inspiring digital content creators are ready. What else is in store at It’s A Girl Thing Manila Year 2? Here’s your official primer:
#1: Dove joins the IAGT roster.
On its sophomore year, It’s A Girl Thing Manila is collaborating with body-positive beauty brand Dove. For young girls, this means lessons on breaking the beauty mold and being a part of the empowering dialogue on diverse beauty.

Eventgoers get to witness the live version of what the two ladies are known for on YouTube: real talk, unfiltered conversation and tackling of issues relevant to young girls today.
#7: Asia Jackson
IAGT Manila 2018 is a milestone for Filipino-African American Asia Jackson, the last of the international guests. It’s both her homecoming and her first time to meet fans based in the Philippines. As a vocal, staunch advocate for diversity in the beauty industry, Jackson’s one-on-one session is an exciting one to watch out for.
