Guia Galvez+, a jacque of all trades.
The adults will tell you to look for the job which can feed you; to settle for stability and convenience. But what about the job that moves you, the job that you’re passionate about? While the adults say that you can be great at one thing, Guia Galvez says you can be great at anything.
When she’s not busy doing her digital marketing stint, you can find Guia in her favorite neighborhoods: BGC and Makati. You can easily spot Guia feeling her rap music at this newest club-slash-speakesy bar FUCT or at 20:20 for her daily fix of great music and cool atmosphere.
Guia believes that even though Manila gets a lot of flak from its traffic congestion, people forget how great it is that we live in a place so populated that it breeds creativity, resilience and improvisation. She continues to say, with so much amusement:
“People in Manila are so resourceful. You can strike up any kind of conversation and there will always be that one person who gets it, who gets you.”
Guia has worn a lot of hats. She has been a volunteer, a photographer, a communicator and a feature writer for a women’s magazine. But the best hat that she has worn, is the hat she wears now- a digital marketer for an international school. She helps curate content for anything you can think of: campaigns, websites, social media feeds, and more. Writing feature articles is still on Guia’s hat rack but what she really takes pleasure in is being surrounded by jolly kids and being part of a close-knit community. It’s sharing a connection with people through what she does that keeps her going every single day.
“At my core, I am a storyteller. I am fascinated by stories of people, events, and activities. It’s amazing how you meet someone or learn about something just by striking a conversation,” Guia shared when asked to describe herself.
Even if Guia’s focus is more on the Guia Galvez: Digital Marketer, somewhere inside of her lies Guia Galvez: Photographer, Guia Galvez: Volunteer, and Guia Galvez: Writer. That’s why when asked about what advice she can share, she says:
“We are so fortunate that we live in a time when we don’t have to be just one thing. You can be a successful writer and still want to be an entrepreneur, a digital marketer, etc. You create your own strength by choosing what you pursue.”
They will tell you a lot of things, but this what Guia Galvez tells you because she is Guia Galvez+, and she can be anything.
Follow Guia’s zest for life and love on her social media channels.
