Extra, extra! Read all about it!

A couple of months ago, The Filipino Expat Magazine contacted me and asked me to be the cover girl of their Spring Issue. They approached me through Instagram, and was curious about my European dream story, thinking it would be an inspiring story for expats around the world. How can I say no?! And so, we met up for a photo shoot at the beautiful Lloyd Hotel in Amsterdam, riding bikes despite the rain and hail, all smiles and purple lipstick. I am so honoured to be representing the Filipino expat community, and sharing my story to dreamers everywhere.

At the interview, I talked about my dream of living in Europe, Swedish indie music as an inspiration (the spark that started it all), perseverance (with the help of a loving support system and fika) and not giving up. I also gave some travel tips on my favourite places to visit in the cities I have lived in: Stockholm, Bilbao and Amsterdam.
