Xian and Matteo: 'Parents are instrumental in developing a kid's talent'

070312-xianmatteo_main.jpgPromil Pre-school i-Shine Talent Camp hosts Matteo Guidicelli and Xian Lim attest to the fact that proper guidance from parents or guardians would help boost a child’s talent and confidence.

A sports enthusiast, Matteo has recently joined triathlon because of his dad’s influence. “Even though I liked risky sports like horseback riding, motocross and go-kart, my parents always supported me in my competitions and training, and that gave me the motivation and confidence. I’ve been training for triathlon for the past 7 months. My dad actually started it.”

Xian further shared that his family was also instrumental in helping hone his talents when he was young. His mom used to be a music teacher while his dad played ball for University of the East’s Red Warriors. “I was the type of kid na maraming gustong gawin and they were very focused in teaching me what they knew. My mom taught me how to play the piano and other instruments while my dad guided me in playing basketball.”

Just like these two talented Kapamilya stars, the 12 i-Shiners have started training under top notch celebrity mentors who will hone their talent in singing, acting, dancing and hosting.
