PHILIPPINES – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd launched #TeamUnstoppable, its latest regional brand campaign rallying the Gen Zs and millennials of Southeast Asia to push their boundaries and pursue their passions. Aligned with Samsung’s vision to inspire the world with innovation and create a new future, #TeamUnstoppable serves as a platform for like-minded youths to share their inspiring stories and motivate others to take action.
Recently, Samsung premiered its new regional campaign film showcasing five inspirational young individuals who are defying all odds in pursuing their passions with great success. This includes Margielyn Didal from the Philippines, Imran Aqil from Malaysia, Jacob Julian Lau from Singapore, Sarnt Sunbeary from Thailand, and Truong Mỹ Anh from Vietnam.
“Southeast Asia is home to many young, creative individuals who have constantly defied the odds to redefine current norms and create new opportunities for their generation. As digital natives, these Gen Zs and millennials are adept at using the power of technology and social platforms to express themselves,” said Olivier Bockenmeyer, Regional Corporate Marketing Head, Southeast Asia and Oceania at Samsung Electronics.
“At Samsung, we pride ourselves on inspiring young minds and we hope to enable more youths in Southeast Asia to make a positive impact and improve communities. We created #TeamUnstoppable to spotlight successful young changemakers and inspire more young people to share their own unique stories of courage, perseverance, and creativity. Through the #TeamUnstoppable campaign, we hope to create a movement and showcase how our youths are leveraging on innovative technologies and products to drive positive change every day across the region,” added Bockenmeyer.
The individuals featured in the regional campaign film were selected for embodying the ‘do what others say you can’t spirit’. These inspiring personalities have stepped out of their comfort zones to overcome social conventions under different circumstances. They are:
