Hello! I am Raffy, a Manila-based Med student who has a passion for writing. I was a former campus journalist and book blogger who is now delving deeper into human interest articles and creative writing. I also contribute to When In Manila.

My experience in blogging introduced me to content creation and Gen Z branding, which, coupled with the habit of writing poetry, led me to self-publish my first zine, How It Should Have Ended. It is a collection of short stories and poetry revolving around the concept of endings.

I am also a social media enthusiast, public speaker, and youth and LGBT advocate all on the side.
