From a young girl retelling Disney tales to my grandmother every night in our native Filipino dialect to a seventh-grader writing fanfiction online under an alias, I discovered the power of words and storytelling. I graduated from University of Washington in Seattle with a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism and minors in English and diversity.
I have worked and interned with various Seattle news outlets including the International Examiner, The Seattle Times, The Seattle Globalist, KIRO 7 News, and KCTS 9.
I have also appeared on the Philippines-based international news channel ABS-CBN covering the December 2017 Amtrak train derailment in Washington state.
I aspire to use my skills in digital media and my passion for storytelling in a career where information, media/entertainment, and diversity intersect.
