Hi there! Welcome to my hub!
I am Yza Santiago, usually called by my friends as wyza (thus, the title of this portfolio ^_^). I graduated from the University of the Philippines Los Baños with the degree BS Development Communication. I took my major in Educational Communication (aka Educational Technology) which enabled me to learn the basics in graphics design, visual aids and materials production, documentary and other video production skills.
During my college years, I participated in the activities of Victory Christian Fellowship Los Baños and became part of the teamworshipLB – Mix team. TeamworshipLB is the joint team of the music team, IT(media) and technical support(mix) team. To honor God and pursue His kingdom, this team worked together to conduct excellent services for God’s glory. I also became a kid’s teacher during Sunday services in my third year because I have this penchant for little kids. 🙂
As a girl, it was my dream to be a part of a production team for a development-oriented television program to practice my skills in communication, public affairs and community works. But then, as years pass by, I guess God has another great plans for me.
I admit, I was a frustrated computer science student; hence, my minor subjects include computer science and statistics. When the time came for me to work on my own website, however, I only have limited practice so eventually, I am still learning and learning. I guess the path for learning never really gets old, right?
Currently, I spend my free time watching movies, chatting with friends, surfing the net and blogging. I previously worked in a call center industry with an internet service provider account so I basically know all about internet troubleshooting. Now, I’m working as product development specialist at Diwa Learning Systems Inc where I am part of the e-learning craze, especially for Genyo e-learning. During my free time, I write for Maganda Filipino, an e-magazine promoting Philippines and Maganda Wedding, an online one-stop shop for your wedding needs. I also collect life’s testimonies and inspirational stories so as to share it to the world through this website, since I have a fair share of my own. I am God’s work in progress and I am just proud to say that.
Lastly, I am an e-learning enthusiast by heart. Probably because of my exposure to the e-learning technology, I collect news and updates about e-learning and educational technology. If you have any idea that you can share with me, message me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I hope you enjoyed your brief stay here. As you get to explore other things about my life, feel free to browse and share anything you like. Thanks and Godspeed! 🙂
