Since then, this little damsel likes to draw and dreamed of having a degree in Arts. That’s when she was given a chance to study again after finishing a two-year course and worked at a small office in Taytay as a Layout Artist, she eagerly grabbed it. Her skills in drawing improved more when she entered college at a State University in their town, just approximately four blocks away from her home. Her experience being employed before gave her at least a little inch of advantage in her study.
As for her writing career, she started scribbling letters on her notebook in high school, inspired by her first heartbreak. Publishing her stories online in a site called “Wattpad” gave her more confidence. Then opportunity came. She published her first novel entitled “Fourteen Pages” last 2014 by Lifebooks Publishing and got her second novel “Flashbacks” published in year 2016 under the same publishing house.
