Gem Darren P. Amacio – Customer Service Specialist

gem-amacio-formalMy name is Gem Darren P. Amacio. I have 3 sisters and a brother. I am the eldest. Our parents are separated, so we live with our grandparents in the province.

I always wanted to be with my mother, so when she visits us in the province, I always make time to be with her and make sure that I am always on her side. I would always cry when she left to go to Manila but I have to understand that she is working for us. Even though she was away from us, she has always made sure that we have everything that we need. My mother taught us to be grateful for everything that we have and to be content.

Since we are in the province, I was accustomed to being around with adults. Sometimes, I would think like an adult from an early age, and that maturity made me not that playful when I was in my childhood. I excelled at most of my many and varied hobbies. I did well in school, especially in arts and design. I was quite smug when I was younger, although I didn’t realise it at that time.

In high school, I discovered my knowledge in arts and in the subject of physical science, especially in sports. I was gem-amacio-outdoorsnot that Cool Guy, instead, my classmates considered me a Nerd Guy without glasses even though I am not at the top of the class. In truth, I am just a normal guy and I don’t want their attention on me at all. In short, I’m a shy guy.

In college, I studied Bachelor in Sports Science and was involved in a few outside activities. I excelled in some of our subjects. Due to the sports that I’m involved with, I learned how to work as a team, and the value of hard work and perseverance.

I started working at the age of 21 as a Customer Service Representative in a BPO Company. I learned how to be approachable and to solve problems on my own and how to talk to others. After a year, I decided to use my knowledge of what I’d learned in College and as a CSR. I worked as a Physical Educator in a private school, teaching senior high school and college students.

gem-amacio-footballI was enjoying myself as a single man and I didn’t want to have a family and the big responsibilities that come with it… but then, all that changed when I met my wife. We got married in March 2019 and she is currently carrying our first little girl. The thought of being a dad makes me more excited and motivated to work hard to give her a great future and provide for their needs.

I believe all the things that I have experienced makes my personality stronger, greater and qualified to be part of your company.

I am excited that you’ll consider me to work with you and thank you so much for your time to read my story.
