MARICEL SISON

Maricel is affectionately known as the “Lady of the House” and “The Principal” at the Beat Junkie Institute of Sound. She is the driving force within the team, she is passionate about growing community and empowering others, as well as cultivating DJ the culture. After witnessing the growth BJIOS, Maricel decided to create a platform for the women of the DJ community. Ask anyone, and they’ll say she is the core of all the behind-the-scene logistics to the school — from operating class schedules, to content creating and marketing, to producing our constant school events such as Sip N’ Scratch; and of course, Ladies of Sound!
