In the Philippines: KC Concepcion
Kristina Cassandra Concepcion, or KC, is a CAMELEON sponsor since 2007. As the daughter of two famous actors in the Philippines, an actress and a singer, KC is a national celebrity in the Philippines.
Before becoming an artist, KC was already a media darling, celebrated by the fans of her parents. In 2003 she became the ambassador of several brands. The same year, she decided to study in France.
KC was studying communication at the Ecole Internationale de Paris when she met Laurence Ligier. Upon completing her studies, she returned to the Philippines, where she quickly found success as an actress and a singer.
Acutely aware of the plight of abused children in the Philippines, KC came to Iloilo to visit the association in 2007, where the girls organized a show in her honor. KC, in turn, performed her hit song « Sundo », a song about loyalty and friendship.
Moved by this experience, KC decided to become a sponsor of CAMELEON. In parallel, she is a National Ambassador Against Hunger of the United Nations’ World Food Program, and takes both these causes very seriously.
KC’s fame and influence among Filipino youth have helped raise awareness on child abuse in the country and on the work of CAMELEON.
KC Conception is herself a sponsor of a young girl in CAMELEON’s care.
“Take action, invest yourself, don’t wait until it’s too late: that is the point of our work.”KC Concepcion
