A Facebook user named Ruben Zata Rivera is currently making the rounds on social media for his goofy graduation photos.

On Thursday, December 31, 2020, Ruben uploaded his graduation photos which included a "creative layout" inspired by social-media sensation and YouTube vlogger Mimiyuuuh. His post went viral and has now received more than 15,000 reactions and 6,600 shares.

For his caption, Ruben wrote (published as is), "So ayun na nga, maraming nagsasabe na kamukha ko daw si mimiyuuuh hahaha kaya naisipan ko na siya ang gawin kong creative shots sa grad pic ko [emoji] - nasa comment section din yung mga post na ginaya ko sakanya, diko man magaya exactly pero pwede na [emoji] Enjoy!"

In an exclusive interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) via Facebook Messenger on Tuesday afternoon, January 12, 2021, Ruben said he did not expect this many netizens to react to his graduation photos.

"Hindi po kasi katuwaan po namin magkakaibigan, sobrang saya ko po nang dahil po sa katuwaan namin ay marami po kaming Pinoy na napasaya, lalo na po iyong mga fans ni Mimiyuuuh."

Ruben said it was his friends who pointed out that his resemblance to the vlogger, and they even encouraged him to copy her TikTok videos. This inspired him to channel her in his "creative shots."

He told PEP.ph, "Ang mga kaibigan ko po ang nagsasabi sa akin na kamukha ko daw po si Mimiyuuuh. During lockdown, pinupush po ako ng mga kaibigan ko na gayahin iyong TikTok videos ni Mimiyuuuh.

"Pinagbigyan ko na rin po sila para mapasaya na rin po mga kaibihan ko. At may time po na nagbibigay po ako ng challenge sa kanila (5k comments) before ko po gawin ang isang video, sinasabayan po ako ng mga kaibigan ko at sa huli sila po panalo. Kaya gagayahin ko po iyong request nila."

The 22-year-old graduating college student further noted, "Since 2019 pa po binabanggit sa akin ng mga kaibigan ko na kamukha ko po daw si Mimiyuuuh, may time pa nga po na tinatawag nila akong 'Mimi' sa school.

"Napasearch po ako kung sino tinutukoy nila at nung nakita ko po, nasabi ko na rin po sa sarili ko na kamukha ko si Mimiyuuuh.'"

Ruben is also ecstatic to know that Mimiyuuuh had already seen and commented on his photos.

Ruben said, "Sobrang saya po, agad ko pong ini-screenshot at pinakita sa mga kaibigan ko. Then sabi ko po sa kanila, para po sa kanila ito, dahil po sa patuloy pag support at pag push po sa akin."

Ruben told PEP.ph that he would love to meet his long lost "twin."

He quipped, "Gusto ko rin pong mameet ang kambal ko na si Mimiyuuuh dahil simula sanggol ay hindi ko na po siya nakita at wala po akong alaala o mga imahe na kasama siya hahahaha Good vibes lang po tayo dyan [emoji]."

He also hopes to become a vlogger like Mimiyuuuh.

But Ruben is currently focused on studying to pass the Certified Public Accountant Licensure examination, which he plans to take later this year.

He said, "Noon po plano ko na po maging vlogger and mga friends ko po sinasabihan ako na gumawa na ng YouTube channel.

"Pero as of now po ay nag-iipon po ako ng mga review materials po, preparation po para sa CPA board exam."

His advice to other students: "Tuloy lang po nilang tuparin ang pangarap nila. Alam ko po mahirap ang online class ngayon, pero sa bawat pagsagot po nila sa module nila ay ang unti-unti nilang pagtupad sa pangarap nila.

"Tsaka imbes na gumala at mag explore na sila ng hobby habang nasa bahay. Kasi napakasarap po sa feeling na iyong hobby mo ay nakakapagpasaya ng maraming tao."

Ruben is scheduled to graduate in January 2021, after completing his bachelor's degree in Accountancy in a college in Tarlac City.
