“Hi, everything! Are you feeling right now?” That seven-word greeting has been stuck in our minds and they are enough to get us laughing out loud. Those were also the words that made Jeric or Ericka Camata, now popularly known as Miss Everything, an internet sensation.
In this episode of I Feel U, the quarantine online star opened up about his dreams and journey in a rib-tickling conversation with Toni Gonzaga. Just a hint of how hilarious it went, Toni even said, “Parang lalagnatin ako sa English mo.”
As the guest greeted everyone, Toni commented, “So you’re an English speaker, huh?” Ericka replied, “I came from another land which is an English functional dictionary.” Asked where that “land” comes from, Ericka answered, “It’s another dimension.”
According to Ericka, that life-changing quote was an accidental slip. He was nervous while introducing himself at a barangay event, thus saying “Hi, everything!” instead of “Hello, everyone!” The crowd laughed, so he decided to keep it.
Hailing from Samar, Ericka’s dream is to become a mermaid. Kidding aside, he wants to be a “wonderful, adorable girl,” which actually means to make everyone happy. He never imagined living the life he has now but he wouldn’t complain. He’s happy about the netizens embracing him – flaws and all. He feels so loved and accepted.
Ericka’s natural penchant for spreading good vibes has changed his life as well. The Waray native now has endorsement offers in the city. He enjoys the journey. Most of all, he’s happy that he’s able to share love and positivity.
