I adopted my second language, English, when I started attending school, while having been raised to speak in my mother tongue and a dialect, Ilocano, from the locals in the Philippines. I was later exposed to Spanish when I moved to the United States, which I thought was strange that I was able to understand bits of this “foreign” language. Although this established the beginning of adapting to diverse cultural experiences, it also made it difficult to define myself as one or the other. But it isn't about me; it's about these communities that create these influences. These pseudo language barriers have sparked my need to comprehend and to translate complex ideas into coherent and relatable stories, and engagements through graphic design. I am an explorer with the intent to immerse, discover, and understand.
