He used to be a supplemental trainer at BPO, but now he works as a radio DJ at 93.9 iFM. Back in the year 2013, Andrew became a member of Voice of the Youth Network (VOTY) where he learned and experienced treasurable moments he kept for life.

Looking back to his VOTY moments, Andrew met different people with the same principle as him to  "INFORM, INSPIRE, INVOLVE, and EMPOWER". He also mentioned the application of VOTY in TAYO AWARD of the National Youth Commission, The Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations (TAYO) Awards is a giving-award program that supports the outstanding contribution of Youth organizations that made an action through Social media regarding Societal Issues in the country.

He also mentioned the conferences and conventions that helped him grow and reach where he is right now. He believes that what he achieves today,VOTY, still gave a greater impact on his life. He became a host for five different shows that helped him to pursue his career and passion. He believes that his exposure to VOTY while studying helps him develop his character, attitude, working habits, etiquette, and in dealing with other people. He learned the power of sharing your knowledge because he believes that it is not something that could lessen you as a person if you help and recognize others' growth. He also became a speaker at various conventions and seminars.

His Message to VOTY members is to continue the fire, the activeness in serving Voice of the Youth Network. He commended the  Founder of the Philippine Center for Voice Acting.

Mr. Pocholo De Leon Gonzales, for believing in their talents and for giving them an opportunity that changes their lives. He is also overwhelmed to meet and have the VoiceMaster as his mentor. Furthermore, he also encourages the Youths to join the VOTY, and congratulates the members that choose the organization that can surely change their lives, because in VOTY no one is left behind.

Quote 1:

“The greatest lesson that I learned in VOTY is the Power of Sharing your knowledge, may favorite ako na paniniwala, na hindi kabawasan sayo ang pagtulong at pag angat ng ibang tao, kasi pag tinulungan mo silang umangat ibig sabihin mas magaling kang tao. I think yun naman dapat amg principle natin, To help, to inform, to inspire, to involve and to empower. Yung mga individual na nakikitaan mo ng potential, kasi pangit naman na ikaw lang ang magaling, I believe mas maganda ang isang lugar, isang community na lahat kayo magagaling.”

Quote 2:

“And yung pagbabago naman eh hindi naman yun one way, pag tinulungan mo ung tao, nandun na yun sa tao kung gusto niyang magbago.”

Quote 3:

“Pumasok ka sa isang organization na we help each other para mas maging maganda ang buhay or we help each other to be better.”
