About Me

Ever since I was young I knew I always wanted to travel. I was influenced by watching Discovery Travel & Living (now known as TLC) when I was in primary school. (kids of the 90's don't just watch cartoons you know haha)

I also love studying geography. I just can't imagine not knowing what's around me which I think it kinda pushed me to take up International Relations as my course in my university.

Diplomacy is my major, not because I'm into global politics but because I want to have a diplomatic passport haha! just kidding. (well partly yes) but seriously I'm more into cultural and social relations of countries and becoming a diplomat is still one of my dreams.

Last January 2016 I quit from my corporate job in my home country and decided to travel for an indefinite period so I can see the beauty of the world and discover what I really want in life. I previously worked for leading financial institutions/intl'l banks but I knew it was way out of my field of study so I really felt the urge of escaping that path.

Now that I'm back in the Philippines I'm hoping to fulfill my career in the field of International Relations.

I'm also a former youth ambassador and a representative to different international organizations when I was a student. I was able to represent the Philippines in different international conferences at a young age.

As a person I think I get along with anyone pretty well. It's easy for me to relate despite any age, gender or cultural differences. Traveling is also one thing that keeps me motivated and driven and I really won't stop until I get to see the rest of the world and what it has to offer. :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I initially visited other ASEAN countries when I was still 19 and I finally completed the 10 ASEAN countries when I reached 24 last year.

I made the most out of every vacation or leave I get from work/school even if it means staying in Myanmar just for 24 hours lol. Now that I completed one small region of the world, I'm planning to visit the countries in other regions as well.
