JayJay is an Online Video Editor, and his story started in a small town where challenges are a daily reality. But no matter how hard life became, his mother was determined to make education a priority, so instead of buying food with the little money they had, she gave it to Jayjay for his tuition instead.
JayJay has always been creative. In college, he actually joined a band! And then he discovered his love for videography – his hobby of taking videos became a passion for video editing. This is how he became an Online Filipino Specialist.
Before becoming an OFS, he was working as a railway engineer. Then the pandemic hit. The death of three teammates due to COVID-19 made him realize the danger and reality of his profession’s risks. He left soon after.
Fast forward to today, JayJay is now a successful OFS, an online video editor, for a boss he’s happy to work for.
JayJay’s journey proves that with determination and the right opportunities, anyone can overcome life’s obstacles and be great.
