Almost 1,000 Information Technology students from all over the Bicol region attended the 6th Bicol Youth Congress on Information Technology (BYCIT) on December 10-12, held at the Camarines Sur Polytechnic Colleges in Nabua, Camarines Sur. With the theme “WEBeyond: Widening Experience Beyond ICT,” the seminar aims to equip the IT students of the region with additional knowledge in their field as well as about their future career in Information Technology.
Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales brought the house down with his talk about “The Art of Voice Acting in IT”. The young crowd watched in amazement as the VoiceMaster did one character voice after the other – from cartoon characters to famous personalities. He even played a short radio drama for the audience where he voiced all the characters and sound effects!
More than mesmerizing the audience with his voice acting skills, Pocholo captivated the students’ hearts with inspiration and words of wisdom on how they can make the most out of their youth by being an inspiration to their fellow students. He challenged the students to become the modern-day Jose Rizal, whom he considers the epitome of greatness and excellence in every Filipino. He also challenged the students to go beyond thinking about their future career, but more importantly, thinking of the LEGACY they can create by pursuing their passion and living their dreams.
