It was a bit confusing on having to decide which talent we were to focus on this feature on Dey Vega for this 109 AB-MMA student is quite versatile with fashion, film making, photography and dance. But we asked him which would be his top priority; he said it would be film making and photography in which he is still willing to learn and explore further.

Short Action Film by Dey Vega: Seven Minutes
“Fashion is part of my artistic expression of who am I, and what I love to do.”, says Dey when we asked him what fashion is to him. “It doesn’t mean that you are feminine when you like fashion.”
1.Don’t be afraid to mix up your clothes. If you have a jacket, find something that suits it well. If you have a polo, find pants that compliments too.
2.You don’t have to put extra layers of clothing on your to look good.
3.It is up to you on how you present yourself; if you can carry yourself well, I think people will appreciate you even if you only wear something simple.
What is COMEONE GROUND?
It’s name was formerly, “Aftaskoo” which was established back in 2008 and a year later it became “Comeone Ground” which was composed of 12 people who wanted to dance and inspire. Now with almost 70++ members, Comeone Ground is a group that caters to CSB & DLSU students and gives them an outlet to dance, to express and to share their talents in dancing. Dey says they are open for new members and they might have auditions next month, so watch out!
Being part of this talented dance team, Dey admits that we wouldn’t want to see him dance at all back when he was in highschool. He says he wasn’t a dancer, he just had the chance to develop it when he joined C1G during his sophomore year in college. “No one starts out great.”, that’s what his friend told him that inspired him to develop his talent.
You guys might really recognize this photo which currently hit around 800++ shares and over 1000++ likes all over Facebook a few weeks ago. Dey was quite fascinated with the current trend “its more fun in the Philippines” that he decided to make use of his favorite photograph he took of our very own SDA Building. At the beginning of it, he never even bothered to include a watermark copyright on his photograph because he thought only his friends would appreciate it but never in his wildest thinking expected such overwhelming hype to happen.
Believe it or not but Dey entered CSB without even having a single knowledge about anything related to Multimedia Arts; he didn’t know how to draw or use Photoshop and didn’t even know anything about photography. Initially, like most aspiring artists; he just wanted his own DSLR, and that eventually gave him the willingness to learn and become a good photographer. If you have the determination and passion to discover what you can do, then it is not impossible to attain what you can. Dey Vega shows us very well how perseverance leads to development when you have the passion to build up what you love doing.

Its quite remarkable how he controls his time given his busy schedule with school, projects and dance practice late at night. Dey says, “Time is important when you have many things to do.”, other passions are things that shouldn’t be a distraction to your education but it should also push you further to do well in other aspects.
