Bio

About Me

An emphatic person who is either introvert or extrovert at the same time. I am easily distracted by violence and harassment not necessarily directed to me. I am basically obsessed with anything arts, culture, and heritage. I am an advocate of locally produced or manufactured products and goods which made me more interested in social enterprise. I firmly believed that a person's wickedness is a result of unhealed wounds, of tormented childhood, and of unresolved pains and hatred.

My Vision

To create a space for communal understanding and respect, space where everyone will be motivated to innovate and to create.

Needs

Funding, skills, and leadership training opportunities that will help me motivate and empower women economically and socially.

Abilities

Visual content creation, creative writing, handicraft and DIY jewelry-making, homemade soapmaking

Interests
