MYXclusive: CHALK x UAAP 2017 Goes For The Great!
Karen Jane Ng
After "daring to dream" last year, Chalk x UAAP "goes for the great" this year! The newest faces of Chalk magazine and the UAAP magazine Season 80 issue cover were unveiled during the Chalk x UAAP Party co-hosted by MYX VJ Kim Cruz and MYX VJ Search finalist Martin Javier at The Brewery at the Palace last October 7!
Chalk editor-in-chief Elaine Carag announced, loud and proud, the winners of Bright Young Manila Campus Hotties 2017: Samantha Aguilar from De La Salle University and Matthew Usisa from San Beda College!
"They are actually the kind of college students that we really want and other students look up to," she said of the title-holders. "We're happy that they are the winners of this year's batch."
The two winners hope to inspire the youth with their victory. "I actually really wanted to win so I can use Chalk as a platform to get my message out. Right now, I'm really all about self-love and believing in yourself. I feel like if they set their minds to something, they're gonna get it," shared Samantha.
"Being a BYM, you're able to get a voice and I can assure you guys that I will use that voice to connect and really inspire my fellow youth. I wouldn't waste kung ano yung voice na binigay sa 'kin ng Chalk," Matthew promised.
Another highlight of the annual party was the debut of the cover of UAAP magazine's Season 80 issue featuring women's volleyball and men's basketball players from all 8 schools. Check it out:
