In this day and age, students are more likely to listen to more ~*relatable*~ figures rather than the celebrities and influencers we have become so accustomed to. Because these student influencers go through the same things that they do, their audience feels seen and heard. Their vlogs about their campus life, workload, style, and routines make their viewers feel like they’re a friend who can relate to all the similar school and life struggles they go through.
If you’re from the University of the Philippines, here are some fellow Iskos and Iskas you can follow and subscribe to. Keep on reading to learn more about them:
