Emulating Women’s Power in Finance and Commerce through ABM’s Bazaar: “THEMYSCIRA: Only Love Can Save the World”
By: Gab Martinez
The SPCP Accountancy and Business Management (ABM) Track brings forth Paradise Island as presented through THEMYSCIRA: Only Love Can Save the World, the annual ABM Bazaar. This year’s bazaar, with the theme of Wonder Woman, was conducted during the months of March and April, at which the Grade 12 ABM students were given the opportunity to collaborate with their co-track mates in making a variety of small businesses with products unique from one another. The event was spearheaded by the Senior High School ABM Track Representatives, Ghia Espino (Grade 12) and Rea Tolfo (Grade 11).
The bazaar featured a total of 12 student-led businesses, which first opened pre-orders to the student body and outsiders last March. Their onsite selling took place at Robinsons Galleria from April 21 to 22, 2023, during which mall-goers outside of the student body were able to support the track’s project. THEMYSCIRA hosted its last day of selling last April 27, 2023, at the SPCP High School Tent. Students, staff, and faculty from the institution were given the chance to purchase from the onsite booths of the bazaar.
More than a collection of businesses, THEMYSCIRA delighted all visitors to the bazaar with action-packed performances from invited performers during all three days of its onsite selling. Furthermore, the hardworking production team set-up various gimmicks, such as play-to-win vouchers and freedom boards, which truly enticed all bazaar goers. True to the bazaar’s theme of heroism and women empowerment, THEMYSCIRA partnered with the Tahanan Sta. Luisa Beneficiary, a non-profit and non-government organization that provides a home for young street girls who are victims of abuse.
Only love can save the world indeed! Congratulations to all the Amazonians behind the success of THEMYSCIRA: Only Love Can Save the World. From the Overall Heads, the Production Team, performers, and the wonderful heroes behind the 12 businesses, you truly proved to us the value of heroism and empowerment in the world of commerce.
