Lizzie Zobel empowers young women to be brave, compassionate
The wife of Ayala Corporation CEO and chairman Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala empowers young women to make smart and brave decisions.
Elizabeth Eder Zobel de Ayala shared her letter to her children during a commencement speech for Grade 6 and Senior High School graduates of Miriam College Nuvali.
“Listen to your heart and make these choices carefully for they must be deeply personal and driven by your own aspirations, not those of others. Know that the paths you choose will require perseverance and discipline but, above all, they will require a sense of responsibility—to yourself and towards others. Remain brave and always true, but mostly deeply compassionate.”
Lizzie is a co-founder and chairman of the Teach for the Philippines, an organization that aims to “provide Filipino children with inclusive, relevant, and excellent education.”
Thank you for your compassion, ma’am Lizzie.
