Rizza Maruja


Rizza Maruja is a 20ish-old freelance writer and illustrator from Angono, Rizal. She’s a graduate of Bachelor of Fine Arts Major in Advertising in University of Rizal System Angono and a 2 year-course Computer System Design and Programming in AMA Computer Learning Center in Taytay, Rizal. Born in the month of Larkspur at 6:15 in the morning, she is the third of four children of her parents.

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.


“More about the blogger”

You’re a Seeker. (I am a seeker. cool \m/) A good listener with a heart of gold, your friends know they can rely on you for support and advice in good times and bad. You’re kind and generous, and helping others comes naturally.

A sensitive soul with an expressive nature, you tend to be a romantic at heart. Sometimes you love nothing more than escaping into your very own dreamworld. Spontaneous new experiences can be inspiring to you, and you like exploring your creative side from time to time. Reliable and trustworthy, you seek harmony and balance in your life. You forge strong, long-lasting friendships, and your friends really value your honesty and frank opinions. You may prefer routine and security to lots of new experiences.

You have the right idea! It seems like you’re feeling really balanced and centered. You don’t let anything stress you out too much, and it’d take a lot to throw you off kilter.

A healthy relationship really is the bedrock of a happy home, but it also takes a lot of energy and commitment to maintain. Make sure that with all the other distractions in life, your love-life doesn’t end up at the bottom of the list.

For you, it’s important to remember to tap into your inner strength and to believe in yourself. Take on new challenges and stay stimulated so you remain enthusiastic and inspired by life. As a Seeker, you get excited by new ideas. You like adventure and original experiences that stimulate and challenge your status quo. Stay inspired with a rich mix of activities, and find time for hobbies that allow you to explore your creative side. Learn to recognize when you need variety in your life, and then incorporate it into your daily plans. Have you ever written a list of your positive features or asked your friends to do the same? It’s a great exercise and it might just surprise you. As a Harmonizer, it’s important to learn to trust your intuition and to know that everything will work out for the best. Learn to say yes to new experiences from time to time. Your confidence and self-belief will grow and grow. Sometimes a challenge or a change of scene could be just the thing you need.

You have a natural sense of the importance of quiet reflection on your deepest hopes and desires for life. Your faith is a wonderful gift that gives you strength and support in everything you do. Make sure you have the confidence to carve out that space for yourself however busy your schedule may be.”
