"After a year of professional growth and success, Bretman Rock’s personal life crashes down around him. In order to heal the strained relationship with his sister, Princess Mae, they turn to therapy for answers.

A post shared by Carla Ibarra (@miss.carlaibarra)

As one of the applicants selected by the MTV Entertainment Group social impact team, she's gearing up to create impactful campaigns to change the thought surrounding mental health in marginalized communities. The group of creators are set to attend a six-week program by MTV to identify and work on developing a campaign for their communities to foster change. They'll get the exposure needed by partnering with MTV which includes PSAs, podcasts, digital art, and other digital tools needed to help improve mental health.

“It is our hope that the concepts that are presented at the Forum will be carried forward and developed into a tangible creative campaign that can reach millions of young people across the country."

VAUGHAN BAGLEY, SENIOR MANAGER OF SOCIAL IMPACT FOR MTV ENTERTAINMENT GROUP

Looking to put an end to the stigma surrounding mental health, the event wants to reach young people who are least likely to seek help or not have enough resources available to them, according to Forbes. With the White House officials involved, senior officials and the individuals from the Department of Health and Human Services are expected to speak at the event. Best of luck is in order for Carla Ibarra as she not only will represent the Filipino community, but also the LGBTQ+ community.

Artist and overall creative Rich Tu just debuted his collaboration with UNIQLO USA. The collab is for the 15th anniversary of their SOHO Flagship store. He has created two customizable t-shirt designs for this particular collab. These designs were inspired by his love for New York and his FilipinX heritage. But this isn't the first time Rich has collaborated with such big companies.

In 2019 he collaborated with NIKE for the "First Gen" Air Max 270 Reacts. Aesthetically they were also designed with the thought of his heritage, inspired by First Generation Immigrants. The colors represent oxidized metal which is a common sight in developing nations like the Philippines.

"As part of a special NYC x NikeByYou drop, I collaborated with Nike on these Nike Air Max 270 Reacts, which were inspired by the First Gen Burden podcast. A few hundred special pairs were sold, and proceeds were donated to ACLU to support immigrants rights."

2020 was a time for Bretman Rock to move on to bigger and better things. He moved into a new place, dipping his toes as a reality show star, becoming a fitness guru, and overall influencer sensation. Take a look of the feature on Teen Vogue, Bretman Rock: King of Manifesting.

Influencers nowadays are many, but Bretman's widening influence not only happened by chance but by sheer will. The star of Teen Vogue's July cover chalks up his success to mere manifestation and insane work ethic plus knowing his way around the internet. However the truth is, as Bretman says, “I always knew I was going to be a star.”

Beyond his reality shows, he was announced as a face of Nike’s Pride-themed Be True campaign. He also was named MTV’s 2021 Breakthrough Social Star, People’s Choice Awards Beauty Influencer of the Year and one of Time’s 30 Most Influential Teens. In between all that, he’s been collecting brand collaborations and sponsorship deals and growing his fan base. However, it wasn't always peachy for Bretman and his family. Originally from Philippines’ Cagayan Valley, he and his mom immigrated to Hawai'i and Bretman's mom worked multiple jobs to stay afloat which left him and Princess Mae to look after themselves.

Anything that had a lens, I was always in front of.

BRETMAN ROCK

Teen Vogue says that "young Bretman found solace in the fantasies he manufactured in front of the camera. He often borrowed his mother’s phone to film make-believe commercials." A natural born performer, it's no wonder why his followers are drawn to his witty attitude, clapbacks, punchlines, and catchphrases.

However, constantly being in the spotlight is sometimes a dreading task. Bretman says, “It’s hard to wrap your mind around it when you grow up on such a small island,” reflecting back between his viral life and IRL reality. He admited that the person we see online is just a persona, a character that he plays up for the cameras. He’s also felt the need to separate himself from the internet’s Bretman Rock, to stay grounded. “I think that’s the beauty of growing up. Yes, I have however many millions of followers, but I can’t touch that. I can’t touch these videos that I’m making,” he says. “But I can touch my family and my friends, the people that I love.

We get to see Bretman be himself in 30 Days With: Bretman Rock, his latest reality series differs from his MTV series Bretman Rock. The series, part heartfelt documentary and part survival show, follows Bretman as he attempts to endure the Hawaii wilderness alone and away from social media. No mirrors, no Internet connection, and it's just him in the jungle.

Teen Vogue gave an insight to Bretman roughing it out. Though the filming was challenging (according to Bretman's team, the crew was only allowed to give him one bottle of water a day as a part of his 30 survival challenge where he was to gather his own resources), it was a chance to reconnect with Bretman before the fame.

“Fame is not who I am, it's not even what I do. It's just a part of my job. This show is about finding me, Bret, and not the Bretman Rock people see online.”

Bretman Rock proudly announced on Instagram that he is one of the faces chosen to represent Nike in their "Be True" campaign.

He said "“Strength has no gender ! It’s measure from within” ?️‍? I’m so excited to announce that I’m one of @nike faces for their #betrue campaign this year❤️????? ????truly such an honor to be seen and heard from Nike, it’s so surreal." Featured photos from Nike.com.

Just a few weeks ago, Bretman took home an MTV Movies & TV Award for "Social Media Breakout Star," and was featured in his own hit reality TV show, "Following Bretman Rock," that you can watch here.

Add another award or whatevah to Bretman Rock's list of achievements. This time, he wins the 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards Breakout Social Media Star award. In his acceptance speech, he thanks "everyone who watched me grow up on the internet. It's probably the most traumatizing [thing] I've ever done in my entire life." Side note, he accepted the award to Olivia Rodrigo's Deja Vu playing while he walked onstage. How perfect is that! Bretman also presented the award for Best New Unscripted Series, which went to Selena Gomez‘s Selena + Chef.

In his closing remarks, Bretman emphasizes that "this award is for all the Asian Americans who [believe] in me, all the Pacific Islanders, and most importantly, this is for all the LGBTQ community."

"But it's all worth it because I'm here onstage accepting this award."

MYX Featured Influencer, Princess Mae, is one of the most known Filipina fashion & beauty influencers of this generation, with over 4M+ social media followers on Instagram, YouTube, Twitter & TikTok. Born in the Philippines, currently living in Hawai'i, you've laughed with her funny commentary on her brother Bretman Rock YouTube channel and have gotten to learn more about her on their hit MTV reality show "MTV Following: Bretman Rock." Binge-watch the season at www.myx.global/bretman-rock-mtv ICYMI.

We sat down with Princess Mae at her Pinay Magazine billboard shoot in Hawai'i, and dove in to get to know her better as the business woman, influencer, mom, and sister. Watch the exclusive BTS video at her Pinay Magazine LA & NYC Timesquare music video shoot, shot & edited by Sharvis Ortega of Hawaii’s Finest Media.

What was it like being born in the Philippines and then moving to Hawai'i? What's your favorite part about growing up here.
I was born in Cagayan, in Sanchez Mira. I came here [Hawai'i] when I was turning 2 years old with my mom and oldest brother, but we left Bretman. What I love growing up in Hawai'i it is so beautiful, take a look around - Hawai'i is just paradise and I'm glad to be around here and the energy it gives.

What are some of the highs and lows in your household growing up?One of the hardest things I dealt with growing up was not being able to have my father. In the beginning, everything was very humble. When we came here from the Philippines, we lived in a garage in a cardboard box. Being 2 years old, other people had to watch me while my mom was working. It was hard but taught me a lot of things. I'm thankful for what I went through when I was younger because it made me the strong woman I am today.

Were you ever nervous about a scene being filmed or anything after the fact?
One of the hardest things about the show was coming to the show because I'd be running late. I have two kids and it's hard to stay on track. I felt very nervous about zip-lining and working out with my brother. It was the first time I was on a show, we do the Youtube thing and it's fun, but we were showing the world who we really are. I hope when you watch, you get to know me, my brother, and my family more.


"I think millions of people love watching the show because we're just being real. Being ourselves is everything, I think that's why people love us. I am who I am and my brother is who he is."

Princess Mae on why the show is likeable

Being a mom for the first time, did it make you realize how hard it was for your mom raising 3 kids on her own. What's a piece of advice she's given you?
Before my daughter, I was pretty rebellious. Then having Cleo in my life, it was a blessing & beauty in disguise. I was rushing my life and wanting to grow up so fast, but now I'm growing up with her [Cleo] and learning. I understood so many things now, like just wanting her to be a child. When my mom said 'focus on school, focus on this,' you'll get to do other things later on and I get it more now as a new mom.

Having Cleo slowed down my life in a good way. It helped me think about my decision-making, my patience, and how to love myself more. She taught me to be very strong. My mom is also very strong, raising us, working 3 jobs, while still helping me a lot in raising Cleo. She has me, she has my mom, and Bretman. She's living her best life, everyone loves her.

How is it different having your son and your second child as well?
Having Ezekiel in my life, it hasn't changed anything. I think I'm more of a girly girl mom and I was like, 'what do I do?' But he's my emotional child. Like I said, Cleo is living her best life but Ezekiel is emotional in a good way.

Can you talk about some memorable moments in your career?
A few things that are most memorable in my career is that first, I'm blessed with this whole career. Being 20 years old and making money by doing what I love and being me is an honor. I feel it was meant for me, growing up we never really had anything. Growing up, I never thought I'd work with companies I buy from like SavagexFenty and Fashion Nova, it's just a dream come true. And working with MTV, that was the ultimate dream and we manifested that we'd always be on a reality TV show. Living our biggest dreams while being in America, my mom worked hard and how we can all do what we love.

Lastly, having these fans and they're everything to me. That's who I'm doing it for. Even if they're not family, we're family.

"I got to hang out with my family again, because we are so busy, I don't get to do that a lot."

Princess Mae on favorite part about shooting the show

What does "Making it in America" mean to you?
"Making it in America" means to me, is being able to provide for my kids and myself, and doing what I love to do. Also, being around my family who's doing the same thing and living life.

In the 'Meet the Cast' episode you brought over Jollibee.Why is it always important to showcase the Filipino culture in your content?
When we found out Jollibee was going to be here in Hawai'i, I stood in a line to get it. I was just waiting to get a C2, C3, and a bucket. Jollibee is classic and bomb ASF!

Speaking of food, you have a special on Mama Merces food truck is lechon belly and fried chicken. Have you learned any of your mom's recipes?
The truth is, I wanted the lechon belly and pinakbet. But my mom said that's her special. We were fighting over this. I learned the fried chicken recipe, but not the lechon belly. My oldest brother who owns Mama Merces, is patient with my momm and she throws down, which he learned from. When it comes to recipes, she doesn't like slow people. She wants to teach us, but there's definitely critiques. But just her being there for us, and teaching it to me, I appreciate every second with her.

"I always wanted to be in movies or people have told me I can be a voice actor."

What Princess Mae is Manifesting in the Future

Do you have a special message for all your fans where they feel represented by seeing you?
I just want to say thank you for all my fans. Like what my brother said in an episode, "I couldn't afford anything, but my dreams," is so true for all of us. We dreamed big and it came true. Now, that's what I want to tell my fans - to always follow their dreams and never give up. Dream big.
