A dreamer's aspirations always stay with him whether he pursues or let it go as he continues in his life. But the real action takers are those who will still go after it when the opportunity presents itself again to them. This is the story of Reymar Peña's persistence to pursue his dreams despite it took a backseat first in the past years.

At present, Reymar is the station manager of VG8 Online Radio which stands for Voice of Greatness and initiated by VoiceMaster, Pocholo Gonzales. This is their online platform to inspire, discuss, and share different topics. 

He is also a rising YouTube vlogger with his channel Ramyer TV currently with 1,000+ subscribers. Most of his content shows the adventures of a voice artist, dubber, and impressionist. Recently, he was on the viral video "This Is My Voice" challenge featuring voice-over artist edition.

Find out how he started taking the steps towards his dreams in this article interview.

Discovering His Passion For Voice Acting Through Impressionism

Reymar can do different impressionism from celebrities to politicians which began way back in his highschool years. At first, he was only goofing around with his voice until he decided to learn more. He shared, "Yun niche ko sa pagiging impressionist since highschool kasi yun ang ginagawa ko. Nagsimula kasi sa mga anime, mga cartoons...laru-laro lang hanggang sa ginagaya ko. Kasi 4th year highschool ako, mahiyain talaga ako. Grade 1 hanggang 4th year highschool, mahiyain ako...di talaga ako nagsasalita. Di ako masyadong nagsasalita, di ako talkative. Noong nag-college ako na, doon ako na-develop kasi na-adapt ko na yun from highschool sa New Era (University) hanggang sa naging college ako yun ang naging campus ko. Noong 4th year highschool, doon na-build yun confidence ko. Then yun talent ko na yun nailabas ko siya, yun ang combined ko para maging active ako sa labas, maging extrovert ako. Yun pagiging impressionist ko, ginawa ko para makapagpatawa sa mga tao hanggang sa na-dedevelop ko na siya, na-kokontrol ko na siya. Self-taught lang din. Tapos nood lang akong cartoons. Kasi ang ginagawa ko kasi, nanonood akong cartoons, nag-dodrawing ako. Habang nag-dodrawing ako, ginagaya ko na rin boses nila. Yun ang nagiging libangan ko noon. Meron akong namana din sa tatay ko na pagka-komedyante so ginagamit ko yun pagka-komedyante ko with voice acting."

Convinced and assured that he needed to level up his skills both in impressionism and voice acting, he started to search for more information until he found out about the VoiceMaster. He explained, "Hanggang sa nakita ko nga sa YouTube, sa website si Sir Pocholo na nag-vovoice acting siya sa Hero TV. Doon ako nagka-idea kay Sir Pocholo tapos nag-search ako hanggang sa nakita kong may school pala siya. Kasi siya lang yun nakita kong merong school eh. Out of nowhere sabi ko, ‘Wow! Meron palang school talaga.’ Kasi dati nagtitingin ako (Google) paano maging voice artist, walang lumalabas talaga hanggang sa nakita ko may VoiceWorx. Yun VoiceWorx, yun ang pangalawang beses nag-search ako, yun ang nakita ko. Then the VoiceWorx is priced P3,000 lang dati, 2004 mga Batch 2 at 3...pasimula yun ng VoiceWorx. From 2005 sila hanggang sa tuloy-tuloy na yun VoiceWorx noon. Mga college ako noon, nangangarap akong sana makaipon ako ng ganung pera, kaso hindi talaga...itinaon talaga noon. Kaya nag-work muna ako as Med Rep. Tapos yun pag-aaral ko sa pag-iimpressionist ko, na-improve ko nang na-improve hanggang sa nag-decide akong itutuloy ko ito kapag may pagkakataon."

The VoiceMaster Opening Doors For The Dreamer: A Rare Chance To Be Handpicked As A Scholar

To become a student of the VoiceMaster in his training program is already a huge opportunity. Imagine more if you're handpicked and personally selected to be one of his scholars, then Reymar has shown his potential and determination as soon as he grabbed this opportunity. He recalled, "“Dahil din sa passion ko. Since high school, gusto ko nang makapasok dito since 4th year highschool noong nalaman kong may voice acting academy sa Pilipinas. Since then, fina-follow ko na rin sa social media si Sir Choy (Pocholo Gonzales) so nakaka-chat ko na rin siya sa workshop. That time nga, P3,000 pa ang workshop noon eh, noong time na yun ha, mga 2004. Mga bandang nasa P3,000 pa lang workshop noon. Hanggang sa isinantabi ko muna yung pangarap ko sa voice acting pero tuloy-tuloy ang training ko. Tapos ngayon itong 2019, noong May 2019 bago mag-birthday si Sir Choy, meron siyang “Gusto Kong Maging Voice Talent” seminar. Sinend namin yun videos sa kanya tapos kung sino yun makukuha, siya yun may free scholarship sa one-day workshop. Doon nabuo yun the Voice Acting Team na halos puro scholars yun."

The VoiceMaster Honing Him As A Leader Early In His Career

Recalling more of his journey, he mentioned how the VoiceMaster entrusted him being the team leader of their respective batch. It is as if the VoiceMaster has already seen more of what he can do, Reymar was appointed as the station manager of VG8 Online Radio in the next months after his free workshop. He narrated, "Ako yun naging team leader, inappoint ako ni Sir Pocholo na ako maging team leader ng the Voice Acting Team Batch 1. Hanggang sa nagtuloy-tuloy na yun. Dati nag-wowork pa ako as a Med Rep noong nagsimula ako rito. Hanggang sa after ilang buwan, after 3 months, nag-decide akong magresign. Full-time ko na siya (CreatiVoices Productions) this year lang din 2019. So from May(seminar)...June, July, August, September. Last month ko ng October so fully resigned na ako sa work at full-time na ako dito. Tapos yun na, noong October 1, binigyan ako ng responsibility sa VG8 Radio as a station manager pero nag-dudubbing na kami since May sa Filipino Fairy Tales. Yun ang naging training ground ko, naming mga Batch 1 hanggang sa Batch 4 ng the Voice Acting team. Kami nag-handle lahat nun. Sadly to say, may mga kasama kami na mga inactive pero gusto pa rin namin silang makabalik kasi kung baga andoon na yun passion nila eh, nawalan lang sila ng alab. Yun din ang follow-up namin sa kanila, kung ano ba talagang plano nila. Hinihintay lang din namin na makabalik sila kung makakasabay sila sa agos kasi ngayon yun VG8 Radio pataas na siya. So marami kaming programs na napapasok doon."

He excited shared more milestones in his journey even when he only started becoming a part of CreatiVoices Productions this same year (2019). He said, "Then ito yun pinaka-latest na nangyari sa career ko as a voice artist...yun nga yun Batch 50 ng VoiceWorx na-assist ko na sa dubbing workshop. Naka-experience na rin ako ng magturo. Then, may mga school na rin kaming kasama ako na nagta-talk as a voice artist na nagbibigay inspirasyon doon sa mga iniinvite kaming as a host, as a speaker sa mga voice acting seminar nila. First time ko rin magkaroon ng project outside doon sa ABS-CBN kung magkaroon na ng schedule so ayun na lang hinihintay namin. Isa yun sa highlight sa buhay ko na makasama ako sa CreatiVoices Productions at yun ang pangarap ko since highschool ako."

Despite being a newbie in the industry, Reymar Peña did not let it stop him to try every opportunity that he sees. This is why even if he's just less than a year with the VoiceMaster, his growth accelerated quickly.
