One of the most frequent questions I get asked since I started handling Joyce Pring is, “What do you love about Joyce? “Paano siya ka-trabaho?” and “Masungit ba siya?” LOL, siguro dahil seryoso resting face nya.
And I am very happy to answer these questions, as someone who has observed her, worked with her and has become an “Ate” and a friend to her. Joyce is lovable, selfless and genuine. My job as celebrity brand manager is not easy, but Joyce has made my work easier and more enjoyable. Her appreciation and gratitude have made me appreciate what I do even more. Her dedication, hard work and passion for her craft adds to my motivation to learn and improve my work that I have been doing for the past 7 years.
People come in our lives in different capacities, some become just acquaintances, some become friends and some rare ones become family. There are people who are just facebook friends, you may even hide from some of them if bump in to them. Some are lifelong friends, who you see once in a blue moon but feels like no time has passed when you finally catch up and there are people that you crossed paths with perhaps during professional encounters and you would have never thought but they became a family, and that's what Joyce Pring means to me! She has become my family.
I know there are many others that feel the same way about Joyce and since today is her 27th birthday, as a birthday present, I have decided to ask colleagues, clients and friends from the industry this question “What are the two things you love about Joyce Pring?”
And here are some very beautiful anecdotes and messages from industry friends and colleagues that I would like to share with you;
Ms. Pam Mariano, Corporate Communication from Disney Philippines shared that,
“Joyce is very GENUINE.
What you see is what you get. She is not very 'showbiz-y' who wants to please everybody, because in her emanates a confident woman amidst a world filled with longing for validation and approval. I also love how wide and deep she thinks, and how this is coupled with her genuine hunger to not only to know but to understand.”
“Joyce is unashamedly Christian.
People who are in the limelight are always subject to scrutiny, but this has not hampered Joyce from sharing her life testimony. Normal na sa kanya na si Jesus is part of her conversations, and I adore her because of that. She has truly been an inspiration, even for Christians to speak up -- loud and proud -- about their faith.”
Aaron Atayde, Host, Radio and Podcast partner also shared his thoughts for Joyce Pring,
“One things that I love about working with Joyce is that she always makes me wanna be better. She shows me how to put in the right work to get better at everything that we do, so with every improvement she has, I feel like I need to be able to do the same.
As for one thing I love about being her friend, I love that she will never abandon me. I know that we are locked in this life together, whether we like it or not, til the end of our days.”
Ms. Gela Laurel, her Make up artist and close friend said,
“When I first met Joyce, we clicked right away. It was non-stop chatting. To this day, we continue to chat. I love our life talks during our makeup sessions. Joyce is empowering and always has a positive view in every situation. I also love her sense of humor. Thanks for always laughing with me.” ❤️❤️❤️
When you’re a Team Joyce Pring, you are a family to her, that’s what her video editor Gelo Tan loves about her.
Gelo wrote, “One of the things that I really love about Joyce is that she made me feel that I’m more than just her editor. She made me feel that I am a friend, that I belong to her circle of friends. Aside from that, I also love her genuine heart. The generosity and the kindness that she possesses is incredible. Plus her sense of humor? A total package. Joyce is a blessing to everyone.”
Matt Alcazaren, our client, who accompanied her in her international event says,
“What I love about working with Joyce, is that you don’t even have to work AT ALL.
Just tell her what you want and she'll do all the work! No script needed! Haha With Joyce, you can basically talk to her literally about anything, she'll always have something to say! Best thing about it tho, more than just making friends, she knows how to use her kadaldalan to help and inspire other people.”
