Filipinas have gained recognition over the years for their beauty, wit, passion, and ability. This Women’s Month, TikTok wants to honor women across the globe who have shown the world how amazing it is to be #LikeAFilipina.
The #LikeAFilipina video campaign, which runs for the whole month of March, showcases the different faces and facets of Filipino women, from homemakers to athletes, educators to artists, and more. Through the campaign, TikTok Philippines hopes to showcase every Filipina’s excellence and creativity in their fields of expertise, and also inspire other women and girls of all ages and nationalities to be the very best that they can be.
Over the last few days, creators on the app have been sharing wonderful short video content using the #LikeAFilipina hashtag. Here are some of the most beautiful and empowering ones to watch.

As part of the #LikeAFilipina campaign, a livehouse was held via TikTok Live last March 13, 2021, from 5:00 PM to 11:00 PM. The livestream featured female creators from the fields of entertainment, sports and fitness, music, business, and gaming, including Miss Universe 2018, Catriona Gray.
While she was live, Catriona answered questions from viewers, and talked about feminism, saying, “It means allowing them to lift up each other and to do whatever they want to do as long as it’s respectful and considerate of others, that’s what feminism is to me. It’s not about being better than men. It’s not about being radical. It’s just about having women’s rights as human rights and it being equal.”
Along with Catriona Gray, 5 other featured creators joined the #LikeAFilipina livehouse. Fitness coach Anne Aniag, demonstrated how to do a 40-minute full body workout during her livestream. Singer Zendee, who captivated the world with her vocal prowess, serenaded viewers. Steffi Santana, co-founder and CMO of Lola Nena’s, talked about being an empowered businesswoman, and how she continues to pursue greater heights for her business. Gamer Aya Ezmaria chatted with viewers while streaming a video game. Finally, entrepreneur Ayn Bernos, founder of Morena the Label, took time to answer questions during her livestream.
