BaiCon InFest 2020: A Weekend Trip to Outer Space

In 2019, I somehow found myself on a stage with some of the top content creators in the Philippines, standing right next to Cat Arambulo-Antonio.

I got major impostor syndrome.

Privy to only a significant few people then, at that point I was at one of the lowest points of my life, having gone through an emotional ordeal in recent months. I was scraped raw, deeply anxious, uninspired, and lacked a sense of self-worth and confidence—personal and professional—that I questioned every single choice I made.

Yet being on that stage for BaiCon InFest 2019 kickstarted something inside me: That through it all, I’m a content creator through and through. While I may not have felt like I deserved to be there back then, it was something I could work on.

It took a while considering everything that’s happened in the past year and all the self-doubt I battled with, but a few months ago I strengthened my resolve to start writing and creating content again. It has become therapeutic of sorts, to just write my thoughts down as I experienced things, especially in the new normal.

Today I’m paying it forward and sharing some good news in the hopes that BaiCon would be able to make a difference to someone like it did to me: Although the ongoing pandemic dictates no large physical gatherings this year, that’s not stopping BaiCon from happening.

BaiCon InFest 2020 is invading digital space! Happening on October 23 & 24, this virtual event will be the biggest gathering of content creators and influencers in the Philippines.

There will be over 80 of the country’s most famous online personalities in attendance, including Cebu’s very own Alem Garcia, Sarah Del Mar, Issa Perez-Gandionco, and David Wilde X alongside Erwan Heussaff, Dani Barretto-Panlilio, Enchong Dee, and more.

This year’s BaiCon InFest 2020 is also raising funds for the benefit of the most important influencers of them all: teachers. Before the pandemic, they were provided teaching materials from the school, but since then, they’ve had to use up their own money to buy equipment.

BaiCon, through the Republiq Group of Companies and the Creator and Influencer Council of the Philippines’s advocacy drive #CreatorsUnitedPH, will be providing teachers of the Philippine Public School Teacher’s Association with the Teacher’s Digital Tool Kit. This will contain digital necessities such as a pocket WiFi, earphones and microphones, a USB flash drive, and a ring light for adequate lighting.

For a minimum donation of Php 100, you can help out with this cause. Donate through GoGetFunding, or through bank deposit, details below:
