This week, I had the chance to be a guest speaker at a Social Media Symposium at Holy Angel University in Angeles, Pampanga, alongside (much more famous) Filipino social media personalities including Nate Punzalan, Benedict Cua, Jericho Arceo, and Mr. Speaks. I was able to share with them some of my experiences as a young artist, including the key, life-changing piece of advice I received from my mentor right at the beginning of my career.
