At a time when the internet is our only way to access everything else in the ~outside world~, content creators on social media have become the source of distraction for many of us. One of the internet personalities we're glad to have discovered in 2020 is TikTok star Rain Matienzo. In case you're not aware, the 20-year-old student has been wowing the online crowd with her short POV videos on the app.

Whether you're a fan since the beginning or a new admirer, here are a few things to know about Rain Matienzo:

Rain became known as the "Conyo Girl" on TikTok.

If you were an OG fan of Rain, you'd know that she started out on TikTok by making short skits about the different types of people you meet in college. Many have been in awe by how Rain executes her conyo personas on TikTok. In an interview with Candy, Rain once shared how she came up with the different POVs she acts out in her videos: "I’ve always 'practiced' meeting my crush’s parents in front of my relatives as a joke during family gatherings, one day I just thought of making it into a TikTok video and was surprised people apart from my family liked my crazy side." As of writing, Rain has almost 150,000 followers and 3.6 million likes on the app.

Contrary to popular belief, Rain IRL does not actually talk like how she does in her videos. "People say nahahawa sila with my manner of speaking, which is funny because I don't talk like that in real life!" she tells Candy in an old interview.

Rain is studying at University of the Philippines.

Rain is currently on her final year of college at University of the Philippines - Diliman. She is taking up BA Broadcast Communication and is expected to graduate in 2021. Last push!

Rain was a also a student jock for a local radio station.

If part of the reason why you follow Rain's content is because you find her voice soothing and easy to listen to, you're probably not the only one. Before becoming a UAAP courtside reporter and a TikTok star, Rain was a student jock for local radio station Monster 93.1. She has been on air with the station for a total of three years!

Rain studied in a science high school.

When Rain was just starting out as a content creator on TikTok, many of her followers initially assumed that she came from an exclusive or international high school. Rain debunks this and said that she actually graduated from a public science high school. Still pretty impressive!

Contrary to popular belief, Rain once told Candy in an interview that she is more on the introverted side of the spectrum, which is surprising to many because it's totally unlike her many POVs on TikTok. Just proves how much effort and talent she puts into her content.
