Young actor Seth Fedelin has observed that his fellow youth have become more and more active on social media, speaking up and making their presence truly felt. Fedelin thus feels that the youth finally have a say on matters that concern them.
“Ang napapansin ko sa Gen Z, talagang mas active sila sa social media. ‘Yung mga opinion nila, ‘yung sinasabi nila, ‘yung mga kabataan, ang dami nilang imik, ang dami nilang say kasi nakikita na nila ang nangyayari. May paki na sila, may paki na kami,” he said during the online press conference for the series “Huwag Kang Mangamba,” last Thursday, Oct. 25.
(What I notice with Gen Z is they really are more active in social media. Their opinions, the youth, they got a lot to say because they can already see what’s happening. They care. We care.)
The show, meanwhile, is now on its last two weeks and will continue to air its remaining finale episodes via Kapamilya Channel, A2Z, TV5, TFC, Kapamilya Online Live, iWant TFC, WeTV and iFlix.
“Kaya natin ito. Tulungan natin. Hindi lang matatanda ang dapat nating asahan. May mga kaya tayong mga bagay na ‘pag nagsama-sama tayo ay mababago natin,” Fedelin added. (We can do this. Let’s help. We cannot just depend on adults. There are things which, if we all work as one, we can change.)
Playing Pio Estopacio in the inspirational series, Fedelin believes there are many lessons that can be learned from the show.
“Ang masasabi ko lang, ang napulot kong aral sa ‘Huwag Kang Mangamba,’ siguro may mga bagay na matatanda ang puwedeng gumawa pero meron ding bagay na kaya ring gawin ng mga kabataan,” he said.
(All that I can say is, the lesson I learned from “Huwag Kang Mangamba” is that maybe there are things that only the elders can do, but there are things which the young can do.)
He noted that in the series, the young made steps to put in order the town, the faith of the people in a God and about who “Bro” is.
“Kumbaga, kaya naming kumilos sa paraan na kaya namin,” he added. “Hindi na kailangan ng magulang, hindi na kailangan ng matatanda.”
(We can move in ways we’re capable of. We didn’t need parents, we didn’t need elders.) JB
