About Me

I'm 15 years old, living in Manila. I love writing poems, short stories, essays, and news articles, and speaking in formal rhetoric. I've been the editor-in-chief of my school's official organ for two years now, a competitive orator, and an aggressive debater. As a student leader, I am a vocal defender of Press freedom and student rights. I am an aspiring lawyer and I want to establish my own law firm someday. I also dream of becoming a Chief Justice in the Supreme Court in the Philippines and a judge at the International Court of Justice in The Hague.

My hobbies are writing, reading, drawing, and playing sports (such as badminton, volleyball, and basketball). My interests include politics, science, analytical study on the different religions, history, humanities, anthropology, and psychology. I am born a Roman Catholic but I follow a "natural religion" (similar to deism). My social views include liberalism, secularism, and humanism. My favorite books are Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo (both by Jose Rizal), The Prince and Discourses on Levy (both by Niccolo Machiavelli), and The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri. My favorite writers are Jose Rizal, Dante Alighieri, Mark Twain, and Lourd Ernest de Veyra.

The world is not really that clear to me. I have yet to understand the world. I wish to understand it through literature. Through reading, what I know about the world is expanded. Through writing, I contribute to expanding the world in thought.
