5 in 5: Justin Quirino

The radio DJ and former Candy Cutie gives you a few pieces of advice on public speaking.

Do you want to be a host, a radio DJ, or a public speaker just like former Candy Cutie and one of this year's hosts at the #CandyFair2014, Justin Quirino? We chatted with this guy backstage during the event and he shared a few pointers if you want to be one and more.

  1. How do you feel about hosting this year's Candy Fair? "First of all, I'm very, very happy that the Candy editorial team asked me to come back. I'm honored, you know, because I hosted last year as well which means, I suppose, they were happy and I'm happy to be back. I love the Candy girls. I love their energy and it's always so much fun to host the Candy Fair."

  2. What do you want to tell girls who aspire to be a host or radio DJ like you? "The best advice is, know who you are first, and to practice expressing how you feel, through words of course. And your intonation, up and down and everything. Keep it interesting. Next, choose a station that you would like to go to like 99.5. Play FM, for example, listen to the kind of music that hey play and try to copy the DJs, but put your own flavor into it, alright? Because of course you want us to see that your personality will shine, it'll stand out, and we want to see what's special and unique about you. If you have that thing that's very special and unique, why not share it the rest of the Philippines?"

  3. How was it hosting with Joyce Pring? "I love Joyce! First of all, she's dancing all the time, and I love to dance too so it's easy. I can just start busting a move with her wherever we go and it's cool. Yeah, she's super high energy, just like me. I hope to host with her again soon."

  4. What qualities do you find most attractive in a girl? "Medyo deep kasi. Medyo deep kasi. Honestly, her faith. If she has strong faith and she can walk the talk as well, and that of course translates to how she serves people around her, her friends, her family, that’s the most attractive thing for me. She does it selflessly."

  5. What's the hardest part of being a radio DJ? "The preparation. Okay, I think a lot of people think we just go on air, say whatever, laugh about whatever, but there's actually a lot of hard work that goes into it. We have to research hours before the show: current events, pop culture, maybe just a little bit of politics, just so we're in the know, you know. And we have to practice verbalizing that as well, and being entertaining. So the most challenging part really is the preparation and conceptualization of the show, with the prod work, before the show actually happens."
