Social media personality Bretman Rock was recognized by the Hawaii House of Representatives for his work in bringing entertainment and positive influence to his audience. 

On Instagram, the beauty influencer expressed his gladness over marking another milestone as he shared photos from the ceremony. 


“Thank you so much for the opportunity, I never thought this would ever happen, I was just an Ewa Beach boy twerking behind the manapua truck, giving MTV crib tours of my high school and singing my boba song everywhere,” he wrote. 


The Hawaii-based content creator remarked that the recognition will remain memorable for him as he went on to thank the people in his life who contributed to his achievement. 

“I will never forget this day. I also got to spend it with the Filipino Caucus and it was so fun and so brown. I loved every moment of it and spending it with my people,” added the influencer.

The Filipino American vlogger rose to fame after one of his makeup videos went viral in 2015. He has received numerous awards including a People’s Choice award for “Beauty Influencer” and “Breakthrough Social Star” award at the 2021 MTV Movie and TV Awards.

Rock has also starred in different music videos and his own reality television series titled “MTV’s Following: Bretman Rock.” He was also the first openly gay man to appear on the cover of Playboy magazine. 

The social media powerhouse has also written a memoir, which he calls a “love letter” to the Filipino culture as he strives to push representation in the global community.

“I always say that it’s a love letter to my first quarter of life, and obviously, my identity being Filipino, so it is truly a love letter to that little boy who dreamt in Cagayan. So yeah, it is a love letter to the Philippines and to the representation of it… Obviously, representation means a lot, not just to me but to other queer kids that are immigrants,” he told Vogue Philippines.
