The MVP-company's landmark Live More and Smart Life thematic campaigns encourage Filipinos to fully enjoy their passions – be it music, films, urban living, or sports – through meaningful innovations. And Smart is hoping that young Filipinos will be able to take inspiration from these Smart Elite athletes who have displayed outstanding basketball skills and fierce passion for the sport.

Smart Communications is a leading supporter of sports development programs in the Philippines. In fact, it is a major sponsor in this year’s UAAP Season, and has backed national teams like Gilas Pilipinas, Sinag Pilipinas, and the Azkals, as well as the leagues and activities of various sports organizations. Its chairman Manny V. Pangilinan is also known as one of the country’s most staunch sports patrons.

During the event, the Smart Elite Squad was asked by the media on how they make use of Smart's digital services and innovations in living a Smart Life as student-athletes.

Gelo Alolino said that he shares most of what he does during training as well as his activities as a student on his social media accounts. Prince Rivero, on the other hand, told the media that he uses Smart's services when fixing his schedule and when he is studying. "Studies first!" He said.

Of all the members of the Smart Elite Squad, fellow Atenean Kiefer Ravena is the most active on Twitter and Instagram using his Smart data connection. And in sharing his daily experiences in social media, Kiefer said that he always practices the mantra of 'thinking before clicking.' Very responsible!
