Gabrielle Joy Gamboa – Social Media Specialist
My friends have always tagged me “the walking encyclopedia” for knowing the most random facts. Even though I’ve always found that amusing, the teasing made me hesitant to share the things I knew, until the day I discovered my passion for research and Social Media Management.
Hi! My name is Gabrielle Gamboa, and I just might be the person you’re looking for your next venture.
I found my passion for research and social media management by accident. Truth be told, I didn’t know that you could make a career out of being on Facebook for extensive hours every day! Three years ago, while working as a call quality specialist for a Call Center, social media was just a place for sharing random things about your day, and then one day a friend asked me if I knew anything about Facebook ads and Page management.
At that time, I had zero knowledge about Social Media Management, but my curiosity got the better of me and told my friend that I would take on the role she was offering as long as she let me learn things I didn’t know online. Thankfully she said yes, and so I got on YouTube, poured hours into training videos, and the rest, they say, is history!
Now, I may still not be an expert on anything but I have two years of being a freelance research specialist and Social Media Manager under my belt. I have done 2000+ hours of research and almost two years of handling social media accounts that I can be proud of… but I still want my skills to grow, thus I have continued to be curious and learn as much as I can.
My friends still tease me for being a “walking encyclopedia”, and though I still find it amusing, I sure as heck am owning that title now. 😉
