Skyworth unveils brand ambassador, awards ten ‘Sky Heroes’

Skyworth Philippines announced the official launch of Gabbi Garcia as its first and newest brand endorser and recognized its awardees for the Sky Hero Awards in their event at Alta Guia in Taguig last Jan. 12.

Guests were encouraged to come wearing modern barong and Filipiniana, establishing the ambiance of celebration not just of technology and entertainment but also the rich cultural tapestry of the Philippines.

Beyond the role of an actress and global endorser, Ms. Garcia is also a visionary and empowered woman. Along with this, she advocated for positive change, evident in her life advocacies on body positivity, women empowerment, mental health awareness, gender inclusivity, and many more which was fitting for the role of an “EyeCon.”
