Filipinos learn to live out life

I love learning about new cultures as you may have noticed from my past posts. But one culture that is near and dear to my heart is my own Filipino culture. So for this post, I gathered three of my fellow Filipino friends (Ciara Hendrickson, Sali Dagandan and D.J. Alejandre) to help me better explain our…

Veronica experiences life through different lens

Those who know me know that it takes some time to get me to fully open up to someone. Especially, if it’s someone I had just met. I usually test out the waters first before jumping in to full conversation with someone, mainly because that’s just how I am. But when I first met Veronica…

Denise makes a decision
