MAKATI CITY, Philippines—Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto is included in the list of recipients of the 2021 “Philippines Faces of Success” awards by a body that seeks to recognize “successful Pinoys all over the country and around the world.”

Among those recognized for their success are award-winning veteran thespians Gina Pareño and Elizabeth Oropesa, show biz siblings Sanya Lopez and Jak Roberto, married actors Tonton Gutierrez and Glydel Mercado, actors Teresa Loyzaga, Wendell Ramos, and William Thio. Composer Vehneee Saturno and director Elwood Perez are also among the recipients from the entertainment industry.
Aside from Sotto, other public servants cited were Bulakan Mayor Vergel Meneses, San Jose Del Monte Mayor Arthur Robes, Quezon City Councilor Hero Bautista, and Dr. Alvin Sahagun, entrepreneur and Maharlika party-list advocate.
Newly-crowned Mrs. Tourism Universe Hemilyn Escudero Tamayo and 2019 Mrs. Universe Philippines Charo Laude are also included in the long list of those recognized by the body, which also comes out with the “Model Mom Philippines,” “Outstanding Men and Women of the Year Philippines,” “Philippine Empowered Men and Women of the Year,” and “Philippines Outstanding Brand of the Year.”
The body also recognized “faces of success” among media staff members, the medical field, and other sectors.
“Success might seem unreachable. But the stories of these personalities prove that anyone, even ordinary Filipinos, can become successful if they make smart and wise decisions in life and work hard,” the organizer said.
The organizer is hopeful that the awarding of the 2021 Philippine Faces of Success will eventually take place at Teatrino at the Promenade in Greenhills, San Juan. No date for the ceremony has been announced as of the time of this writing.
