Meet Andra Gogan; The Multi-talented Vlogger and Two Time World Record Holder

Published

on

What were you doing when you were around ten years old? Most of us at that age still had no idea of how the world works. Many still had no dream of whom they wanted to become, and those who did, dreamt of what they wanted to be when they become adults. Most of the dreams do not come true. Even so, there are a few individuals that take a different path. At only 11 years of age, Alexandra Gabriela Valentina Gogan, famously known as Andra Gogan, was already breaking world records and achieving the unthinkable.

Gogan is a young woman with many talents, which she discovered at a young age. She is a singer, actor, vlogger, and can play the guitar. Incredibly, she has excelled in all those fields and is continuing to do so. Gogan is achieving what no one else of her age before her have achieved. Gogan is setting the pace for others coming after her.

Breaking Two World Records with Music

Gogan is a 21-year-old YouTube star from Buzau, Romania. She started singing at the age of three. Together with her brother,  Răzvan Gogan, with whom they share the same talent, they went on to do things that were not done before by anyone in the music industry. They appear not once, but twice in the Guinness Book of World Records.

In 2009, Gogan and her brother broke the record for the longest live concert held by a child. The show lasted for three hours and 20 minutes after she performed 55 songs continuously. Gogan also broke the world record for the most CDs released by a child. She had released a total of 16 albums.

The world record was confirmed on September 15 of that year. 

Some of her music compilations include, Hallelujah (2013), Beautiful Sick (2014), See you in September (2017), What a Boy (2017), And you can be popular (2017), Your Eyes Speak When You Don’t (2017), Whatever Happened (2018), You Break a Generation (2018), Dislike (2018), Heart on Insta (2018), Christmas with  you (2018) among others.

Apart from her brother, her father, Florin Gogan has also appeared on one of her Instagram posts.

Going into Acting

Apart from breaking the two world records, Gogan has achieved more in the field of acting. She, however, did not start in front of a camera. Gogan’s first started as a voice-over actor. One of the first projects she did of that kind was when she did voice-overs for the animation Rise of the Guardians in the year 2012. 

Later on, she became famous after dubbing live-action animation shows like Doctorița Plușica, Ferb, Phineas, Dog with a Blog, Violet, and Jake and the Pirates Nowhere for Disney, and Come on, Young Titans! For Cartoon Network. Also, she did commercials and other voice-overs for secondary characters for Disney Junior, Disney Channel, and Nickelodeon.

Her most significant success though was when she did the Romanian version of the animated princess in Sofia the First, Ariel Winter did the English version of the same animation movie. Gogan and her brother also participated in the 2016 Romanians Got Talent, a reality contest television program done by the British company, Simco Limited and featured on PRO TV.

What She’s up to Now 

Her journey as a vlogger started in 2016 when she launched the mini-series, How to Become Popular at High School. The mini-series went on for four seasons, from 2016 to 2018. Since then, she has accumulated a total of 780,000 YouTube subscribers, millions of views, and almost 700,000 followers on Instagram.

Currently, Gogan is still making music with her brother, choreography, influencing and vlogging on her Tik Tok. She has an audience of over 1.5 Million viewers in TikTok and is planning a music concert scheduled for September this year, Tickets for the Chisinau concert.

In conclusion, Andra Gogan’s success speaks for itself. She has conquered the entertainment world at such a young age, which is nothing short of incredible. That, demonstrating that it is possible to achieve one’s dreams no matter the age. After all, it is just a number. Don’t let it come between you and your dreams.

Meet Anton Ortigas; ​one of 2019s top travel photography artist.

Published

on

Anton lives in the corporate world; he breathes the hustle and bustle of the concrete jungle. He seems like your average yuppie: finished his MBA, works a day job, dabbles in photography… if only they were that. Instead his Master’s degree in Entrepreneurship from Ateneo GSB is put to good use daily in his many roles: first, as one of the youngest Country Managers of an international company, second, as an owner of an f&b franchisor, and third, as a globetrotting Instagram influencer.

Anton is behind Cotecna Elite Philippines Inc., a leading third-party audit, training, testing, inspection, and certification (ATTIC) global provider dedicated to developing and employing Filipinos in different provinces so they can provide local companies with world-class assurance services. With a bustling professional workforce of more than 300 employees in the Philippines, Anton has certainly carved himself a top spot in a niche industry, and yet despite his success, you can still see him in action, always in pursuit of bettering himself and others around him. This is why they recently launched their capacity-building initiative The Cotecna Institute, a training facility providing technical and vocational education to further professionalize the industry. It also provides leadership and skills enhancement seminars available to the youth in partnership with various government agencies.

His passion for empowering people goes beyond the confines of skyscrapers and traffic jams, and this is seen in We The People Coffee and Tea Company, a homegrown farm-to-palate coffee shop with three branches in Manila that serves handcrafted specialty coffee made from locally sourced and roasted beans. It also features curated products from students and budding entrepreneurs, as well as art pieces from illustrators, writers, and photographers from metro south, including his pieces from his internet-famous IG @antonorts, with over 90,000 followers and counting. There you can see his travels around the globe, captured in their wonder with Anton’s unique take on lines, shapes, and colors. When asked how he can manage to find time to take such beautiful photos in his busy life, he answers: “Social media provides an escape – a means to find inspiration and breathing spaces in other realities.” It’s no wonder that he takes such poignant and inspired images.

Here are some questions I asked him:

How did you make a name for yourself in your industry?

By taking photos of unique things, creating moments through everyday life experiences

What obstacles did you face to get to where you are now? 

I was young when I started managing our family business. It was hard to improve our corporate culture in the beginning because more senior employees did not listen and were resistant to change.

How did you overcome these obstacles?

Lead by example and worked hard to get more clients. I implemented programs within the company that empowered our employees to make decisions and lead their teams independently. This infused in them a feeling of ownership and it leads to positive growth and unity amongst each other.

The crazy thing was, it was pretty much my whole circle I had to cut off so it was pretty much just myself and my determination this whole process.
