After meeting the Jollibee Yumbassadors this 2016, I realized something. I don’t want to settle for mediocrity anymore. I got inspired after hearing the stories of our Yumbassadors. I want to push my limits even more, dream bigger, aim higher and of course, work harder. I wanted to start anew and move on from something that I know is not deserving for me. How about you? What do you think of our Yumbassadors this year?
