Hi there! Welcome to my hub!
I am Yza, usually called by my friends as wyza (thus, the title of this blog ^_^). 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) and learned the basics in graphics design, visual aids and materials production, documentary and other video production skills.
I have been working in the publishing industry here in the Philippines for the past 10 years and during those eight years in the industry, I realized my passion is in the education sector — helping people learn, creating learning materials and designing learning experiences.
People mistake me for an extrovert, for I am always game at meeting new people. In reality, I’m an ambivert. I can go with the flow and socialize to an extent, but at the end of the day, I just wanna chill and read a book, or watch a movie. I love to learn anything, but my mind focuses only on feel-good things. I like to go to places and learn about their culture. Sometimes, I write about it, sometimes I don’t. But one thing is for sure — I take a good deal of photos and keep it with me. My ultimate bucket list is to travel around the Philippines, and write my experience about it.
I also like nature, so hiking and camping are my favourites. I love to swim, so if you’ll invite me for camping trips with a sidetrip to the waterfalls, definitely count me in. I rarely talk to people, but when you hear me share endlessly about my stories, consider yourself one of my trusted few.
Lastly, I am a Born-again Christian. Twelve (12) years ago, when my life was chaotic and I was a mess, I met Jesus and experienced His unconditional love for me. I believe in the Bible and since then, I try to apply what I’ve learned about it. When I was just new in faith, I remember writing poems and psalms about my experience. I wanna relive the experience so I’ve put up this blog ten (10) years ago. I’ve learned about life so now, I am using this online space to document and inspire others by what I learn along the way.
I think this is the most personal introduction I’ve written about myself. You may read about both the positive and negative things that happened to me, and we may disagree about certain things I’ve written. I hope you still give me a second thought and give me the benefit of the doubt. If you’re still getting uncomfortable, feel free to unfollow me and I won’t hold it against you.
So there. I hope you enjoyed reading and feel free to browse to your own heart’s content. 🙂
