Look Who’s Talking: Marie Cielo Bayobay

Posted by Peach Angeles ,

Beyond a timid, shy facade is a kind and clever person, who could go on for hours talking about the many anime series she’s watched and the many books she’s read. 

But, of course, you wouldn’t know any of these until you get to know her deeply and she starts to open up to you. 

Did we mention that she’s also one of the most brilliant in the content department? 

She’s a storyteller that produces quality content even on a rough day. She’s been a great addition to the team and more than half a year later, she continues to improve her craft and it only gets better every day. 

Everyone, here’s Marie Cielo Bayobay, off-site content writer, for today’s segment of Look Who’s Talking. 

Describe your role at OOm. 

I am an off-site content writer who is responsible for creating written copies for most of OOm’s clients. Sometimes, I write social media posts for OOm’s Facebook page, too. 

Walk us through your typical workday. 

I check first the tasks that are assigned to me for the day and then make a list of the ones that I should prioritize first. After that, I would write random sentences to get into the mood of writing and then start writing blogs.

During break time, I would watch one episode of an anime series to take time off from the long gruelling hours of writing. And then, I’d go back to work. 

What powers you through the day? 

Watching anime and reading manga while commuting. Because of this, I feel energised and positive most throughout the day. Sometimes, music helps too. It keeps me awake and helps me stay alert while writing. 

What makes you feel accomplished at work? 

Whenever I am able to finish at least 7-8 articles a day. 

Cielo poses as Futaba Sakura from the hit role-playing video game, ‘Persona 5’.

How do you see your career in the next 5 years? 

Honestly, I don’t know where exactly my career is heading to. But, since I am currently in the digital marketing field, I’d probably still continue writing blogs and soon become an onsite writer. 

We understand that you cosplay. Who’s your most favourite character you played so far and why? 

If I had to pick one that would be Hani-senpai from Ouran High School Host Club. We both look way too young for our age, and we both like sweets. Plus, he can also be a mischievous at his friends just like I me. 

What’s your favourite movie of all time and why did it speak to you so much? 

The Proposal. I have always been a fan of stories and movies that show how two exact opposites can end up falling for each other. I also love the character of the female protagonist because I somehow see myself in her. 

Second to the right, Cielo plays Fran from the manga series, ‘Katekyo Hitman Reborn’.

What’s the one thing that people always misunderstand about you? 

I am an insensitive person because whenever I tell a joke, it comes out quite offensive. I don’t know how to control the tone of my voice so the joke wouldn’t become an insult. 

What was the last book you read and when? 

Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella. I read it during the time I was still looking for a job.  

What do you love most at OOm? 

I love the whole Content team. Thanks to them, I learned a lot of things that I thought I could never do before. Also, because each one of them would patiently teach me on the areas that I am having difficulties with.
