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.
We know the drill. Wake up. Work. Eat. Work again. Sleep. Repeat. This cycle is endless. It encompasses different walks of life, regardless if you're a student, an employee, an entrepreneur, or whatnot. While productivity is an asset that will surely help...
