Hey, I want you guys to get to know me more so…

Here are 10 Things You Should Know About Yours Truly

1 I was born and raised in the Philippines, one of the most beautiful countries in the world. My goal is to explore all 7,107 islands in the future.

2 I have earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications in the Philippines and a Post Graduate Diploma in Business Management here in New Zealand.

3 Pens and papers are my obsession. I hate lined journals because I feel restricted while writing on it and yes, I have a terrible handwriting too. Ha ha! Thank God for computers, eh? 🙂

Also, I wrote an article about my World Youth Day experience in Madrid, Spain. My sharing got included in the Official WYD e-book called, “Tiempo De Valientes” which was published and was given to the Holy Father, Benedict XVI. The book contains 70 testimonies from young pilgrims all over the world. It was pretty incredible!

4 I love Music. Aside from writing, singing is my other love. I discovered that I can actually write songs after High School and I am a very big fan of the Indie Music scene. Basically, I like to listen to the type of songs that get your creative juices flowing. #InspireMe

My song “Awakening” which was inspired by my World Youth Day experience in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil in 2013, has been featured in the CBCP News Website while my other song “Field of Faith” which was co-written by a good friend from Guatemala was featured in the Catholic Social Media Summit version 2.0 in the Philippines. Also, I was blessed to be included in the Official Website of the Diocesis Coria-Caceres in Spain for singing the Spanish version of the song “I Give You My Heart” (Te Doy Mi Corazon) in Sierra de Fuentes.

5 I worked as a Fulltime Pastoral Worker for 4 years. My love for travel intensified so much when I was working as a Catholic Lay Missionary for a Non-Profit Organization in the Philippines.

6 I am passionate about anything visual. I love watching movies, reading adventure books, visiting art galleries and taking interesting photos on the road. I have an awesome photo gallery on Instagram so you better check it out too. 🙂

7 I can eat spaghetti all day, every day!

8 My favorite color is Yellow but I always wear Black.

9 I have a unique laugh… I laugh really loud haha! 😀

10 And of course, I love my family. No matter what happens, at the end of the day, they are my paradise.
