10. If you could meet a famous or not so famous person, who would that be and why?

Julie Andrews. She seems quite fascinating.

11. How old should a person start traveling?

The moment you feel like it, just do it. There’s no such thing as too young or too old in doing what you love.

12. What is your best experience in traveling/living in the Philippines?

Meeting and spending time with different people from all walks of life. Also, I’ve got this yearly thing that I celebrate my birthday by going somewhere alone and that’s when I joined one of ExPh’s road trips last year. I never thought that I’ll get to taste “ang pinakamasarap na cake and banana bread” ng Northern Samar during RRT49. Besides the cake, the trip, most especially the experience, has been remarkable as well. I decided to join and sign up for this alone yet the trip ended gaining a lot of friends. And it just goes on after.

13. In one sentence, how would you like people to remember you?

I want people to remember me for being me. ????
