Startup Pinay Meetup: Saving time and headaches with no-code

September 30, 2021


I love what I do, but there’s more to me than that. I go to spinning and dance classses regularly, travel as much as possible, and try to read and learn new things daily. I’m not one to turn down discussing tech, watching rom-coms (particularly Korean ones) and sci-fi/fantasy, and most especially, drinking a pint of IPA. I also like to study Japanese (my current goal is to pass JLPT N5) as well as practice writing with my friends through our monthly workshops.

Random facts about me:

  • I lived in Japan for a couple of years, something that I still look back on as some of the coolest, most interesting years of my life–but I believe the best is yet to come.

  • I’m a big fan of The Lord of the Rings, to the point that I once tried to learn Elvish (yes, both Quenya and Sindarin).

  • More coming soon when I think of them!
