He also shared stories of inspiration and personal reflections to the participants.

Pomperada was also the guest speaker for the Cultural and Solidarity Night of the program on May 25. He challenged the participants to dare to fail. He inspired youth campers by sharing his personal stories and reflected on learning from personal mistakes and failures to succeed in life.
