FACES OF CEBU: Danieca Goc-ong, 24, teacher/content creator

CEBU CITY, Philippines—  Have you ever heard of the word “volumatic?”

If you have been lurking around the internet lately, for sure you have stumbled upon this word in one of the videos by teacher Dan.

Dan is Danieca Arreglado Goc-ong, 24, who is from Liloan town in northern Cebu. She has been trending lately because of her unique and fun way of teaching music class online.

Goc-ong, who is a teacher by profession, wants to share her own experience online and make sure she has some fun while doing it.

In her videos, you can see and hear her teach how some songs should be sung using her own techniques.

Mind you, these techniques are made for the sake of having fun and should not to be taken seriously. The netizens love these, by the way.

Here are some of her videos you might want to look at to learn a thing or two about singing or at least just have a good laugh today:

“I started my vlog last year August that was all about teachers’ experiences and have this music class of mine. I have fun making all of these because I wanted to give happiness and positive vibes to all the viewers despite what we are facing right now,” she said.

In some of her videos, she uses the words “volumatic,” “wavelength,” “opening remarks,” “prolong,” and “proshort.”

“Volumatic” is the most trending.

“Volumatic is fading of the voice from opening to closing your mouth. Hehehe basta, mam mugawas ra na kalit nako (it just comes out from me) hehe,” she explains.

Goc-ong is now taking a break from actual teaching as her contract just expired last year. She is looking for better opportunities this year in line with teaching.

For now, she is happy to be teaching and spreading good vibes to people online.

Goc-ong may not be a hero or a noted personality just yet, but during the celebration of Women’s Month this March, she deserves to be honored for her wit and humor as a teacher and as a lady.
