Born in September 13, 1983 in Norala, South Cotabato, Philippines, I grew up to be a talented person. Which I give most of the credit to my mother who supported and helped me hone my talents and potentials. I was just 6 years old when I started drawing and painting. I wrote my first stage play at the age of 11 and graduated as Artist of the Year as well as received the First Honor Award during my Elementary Education.
In High School, I was an official student journalist of our school’s magazine and newspaper. I served as literary editor for one year. I often represented our school in various competitions such as Science Fairs, Quizz Bees, Writing Competitions, Poster Making and Slogan Competitions, etc, etc, and most of the time went home bringing the bacon. It was also during High School that I was fond reading novels and started making my own too. High School life ended but it gave me an achievement, being the Salutatorian among 1,000 graduates.
I welcomed College life with open arms. I thought it was just easy, but the moment the class started, my impression and presumptions turned out amiss. In fact, it was the hardest! I took up Bachelor of Science in Architecture in UP Mindanao (whoa! I’m proud to be UPian!) and spent hundreds of sleepless nights making plates and studying for other subjects other than Architecture. I really burnt my brows. But along the way, all my hardworks paid off. I received excellent grades and often I was included in the roster of Dean’s Lister or College Scholars.
Today I enjoy life writing Romance Stories and working hard to earn money, hehe, and having fun. I’m a nocturmal creature… a self-confessed vampire (*wink) and I’m up at night receiving calls and talking to Americans instead of sucking blood… I also do Architectural designs like Auto-CAD and 3D Modelling.
My greatest desire is to become a successful architect/writer/painter/entrepreneur and earn lots and lots of money so I’ll have the resources to build a self-sustaining School for underpriviledged students. I came from a humble beginning so I know what its like being one. Yung gustong-gusto mong mag-aral tapos walang sapat na pera ang parents mo to send you to school. Ang hirap. I believe having a good education is a tool to success! That’s why I worked and sacrificed a lot for everything I have now. I’m not yet rich at the moment but I’m living a decent life. At hindi na ako nawawalan ng pamasahe at ginugutom dahil may maganda akong trabaho which can sometimes support luxuries.
Idol ko si Oprah. Someday I’ll have my own school too! And there would be no streetchildren loittering around begging for alms. They will be spending their times honing their knowledge and skills in my school! haha! such a great plan for a small woman! I know I’m not a superwoman but I know I will make a difference someday!
