hello Grüezi



Dear Visitor, welcome and thank you for visiting my portfolio! Throughout my travels, I was always fascinated with how language has the power to open up new worlds. After a fulfilling career as a Chef, I now find myself pursuing my love of languages and a new calling in language studies and education.

Highlights of My CV

Since Fall of 2022 I have been working with the Indo Pacific Languages and Literatures Department at UH Mānoa (UHM) as their Administrative and Fiscal Support Specialist

I have a diverse academic background with degrees from the following institutions.

I always had a passion for languages. I speak Filipino and English fluently but I can also hold a conversation in Cebuano, German and Spanish. During my spare time, I use learning apps to study other languages such as Russian, Japanese and French, although I must admit I'm still a beginner in these.

Education is the only real inheritance I can leave you.”
