Born on the 25th of November in 1995, Joseph Simon Araneta Marcos is the son of President-elect Bongbong Marcos and lawyer Liza Araneta. He is the middle son between President-elect Bongbong Marcos’ other two sons, Ferdinand Alexander Sandro Araneta Marcos and William Vincent Vinny Araneta Marcos.
Describing how he is
Simon reminisced about his early youth in Ilocos Norte, describing how he and his siblings would go to the beach with their neighbours and assist a local fisherman who used to reside in the barrio next to us in catching fish. Simon’s formative years were spent in this region of the Philippines.
As a surprise for his father on Father’s Day, Simon related a lesson that his father had taught him and his siblings while the family still lived in Ilocos Norte near the ocean. During the scene filmed in Ilocos Norte by the shore, Simon exclaimed Hey, Pops! Remember when you, San, and Vinny were maybe five years old when we lived here? You gathered us together and discussed the many blessings we had received. And taught us that the fact that we were lucky was not significant enough; rather, the fact that we had to share our blessings with everyone else who was less fortunate was the essential thing.
After spending his youth in Ilocos Norte, Simon followed in the footsteps of his elder brother Sandro and enrolled in the boarding school in the United Kingdom known as Worth School. His education continued at Oxford Brookes University, where he earned a degree in Business Administration and Management. He now works as an analyst, which is how he characterises his profession.
Interview accompanying members
On his father’s YouTube channel, he has made multiple appearances in various vlogs. In an interview that took place in 2018 with his father and Net 25, he said that he had given his whole family pet names, including “Paps” for his father, “Vince” for his younger brother Vinny, and “Sands” for his elder brother Sandro.
Vinny, Simon’s younger brother, described him to Boy Abunda in an interview in 2022 as a bit more restrained, a little more contemplative. Vinny made this comparison because of the two men’s reticent personalities, which are similar. Although he consciously avoided the public’s attention, he was notably active during the presidential election season. As part of the BBM Youth Movement, he went to Cagayan de Oro to advocate for his father.
Joseph Simon Girlfriend
The public does not pay much attention to Joseph Simon Araneta’s girlfriend. His Instagram feed shows that he does not have a significant other. Joseph may be more preoccupied with his job than being in a relationship at this point in his life. In 2018, he completed internships with the Berjaya Group Berhad and then with the Chaudhary Group. In addition to that, he keeps his Twitter and Instagram profiles updated and active at all times. Up to now, he has amassed 165 Okay followers and 97 posts.
