About Me
I grew up on a farm in a very remote town in South Australia called Moorook. At a young age I aspired to become either an artist, a writer, a singer or a chef. My passions in life are art, writing, cooking, photography, acting, tennis and singing. I am currently studying visual arts at the University of South Australia but also wish to study a creative writing course at Flinders University. I have no idea what I will become in the end but I do love a mystery. Because I am creatively inclined, I am also highly sensitive and empathetic towards others. I have three beautiful sisters around my age who are also very gifted. We are all half Philippino and Australian and very proud of our heritage. I have taken on lead roles in musicals such as Nancy in Oliver, and Mother Abbess in The Sound of Music. Even though I had endured a major operation, during the last year of high school I achieved the highest marks in my Creative English class. This year, I moved to Adelaide with two of my sisters.

Favorite Word:

mystery
I believe that without this word existing in its true form within us, our world would be bleak and predictable. We need to keep asking questions about life, about possibilities, or we will inevitably become old and tired, with no desire to imagine and create. Science will always be necessary, but it inevitably narrows our scope of thinking. We need the art of mystery along with it, to instil hope and keep our souls intact. Life is a mystery, a novel of adventure that will keep us captivated.

Least Favorite Word:

repugnant
The mere sound of this word is unpleasant to the ear. When it is spoken, I quiver uncontrollably and my insides turn. 'Repugnant' is the epitome of what is distasteful in our language. One would have to think twice before serving this horrible dish to anyone worth serving. More specifically, 're' conveys a 'ripping' sound, 'pug' sounds like 'slug', and 'nant' suggests something stagnant. If I had it my way, I would completely erase its presence in every dictionary and book there is.
