Animator + Illustrator
Dominic Panganiban (born September 27, 1990 in Manila, Philippines) is a Filipino/Canadian YouTuber and animator more known by his nickname and YouTube channel Domics.
The channel generally posts videos Domics animates in which he tells a story about his life, an aspect of it, or his thoughts. As of September 2018, this channel has over 750 million views and nearly 6 million subscribers, ranking him in the 658th place for most subscribed. Dominic originally drew online comics, hence his screen name "Domics", a combination of "Dominic" and "comics." He discontinued this to create YouTube videos full-time. (via Wikipedia)
Rapper + Music Producer
Known for her sharp lyricism and rhythmic multi-syllabic flows, Ruby attributes her musical identity to being a child during the 90s-- constantly hearing Tupac, Eminem, and Wu Tang Clan play on the radio and television, she instantly knew rap was the best way she could express herself.
As a teenager, Ruby began crafting her own rhymes until she began to develop her own style and became comfortable with sharing her story. She's been able to showcase to the world her intricate lyricism and powerful messages. Her debut album 'Circa91' is out now.
Founder of 'Peace of Mind'
Loizza Aquino is an 18 year-old social activist. She has received national and global recognition for her work. She was selected as one of the recipients of the RBC Top 25 Immigrants Award, Canada-wide. Loizza is a motivational speaker and youth mental health advocate currently attending the University of Toronto. Her youth-led non-profit organization, Peace of Mind Canada, holds events called Youth Against Metal Health and Illness Stigma (YAMHIS), which provide a safe space for students to share their stories and experiences.
