Dubbed as the “Creative Cutie of Ateneo,” Castelo is a communications student who is into graphic design, film, and photography and looks up to famous lens men BJ Pascual and Mark Nicdao. Meanwhile, Zoe Vinluan “The Swag Queen of Trinity University of Asia,” is a medical technology student who is passionate about dancing and dreams to become a doctor.

As the newly named Chalk Bright Young Manila Campus Hotties, Castelo and Vinluan will serve as Chalk ambassadors who will grace future pages of Chalk magazine and youth-oriented events. The two were also unveiled as the inside cover personalities of Chalk’s November issue with Kiefer Ravena and Alyssa Valdez on the cover.

“More than anything, I want to be an inspiration to all the young people that they can do something significant at a young age,” Castelo said. He added, “Chalk is just the beginning of a journey I have yet to discover as a developing artist.”

Vinluan on the other hand is ready to use her influence as a Chalk ambassador to give back to underprivileged children.

“I want to influence and inspire the youth, especially the less fortunate that there are no limitations if they want to achieve their goals. I also try to encourage children to try dancing as a hobby instead of spending time on vices,” she shared.

Aside from being Chalk ambassadors and being the inside cover personalities of Chalk’s latest issue, Castelo and Vinluan also won an all-expense paid trip with two of their friends to Boracay sponsored by Smart.

Since 2006, Chalk gathers college students who possess the caliber of conquering campus life and beyond for its Bright Young Manila search. The Bright Young Manila badge has become a status symbol among the Filipino youth and Chalk’s annual search has produced the best and brightest young talents who have made a legacy in various industries.
