Tell us about your heritage and family background. 

"My sister and I continue to practice and embrace our culture daily."

I was born in the Philippines and moved to the United States when I was 10 years old. Even though we moved when I was young, my sister and I continue to practice and embrace our culture daily, including speaking our Filipino dialect (Kapangpangan) and eating home-cooked Filipino food my mom makes.

What are your hobbies and interests? 

My main hobby is hiking. The first hike that sparked my love for the sport was a snowy hike at Mt. Baden Powell in the San Gabriel Mountains.  After that, I promised myself that I will hike as many Southern California peaks as I can, including the top six highest ones. I’ve conquered three out of six so far!  

What is something you are proud of? 

 I just recently became a Quality Manager at Behr Paint Company. It’s my first role as a manager with direct reports, so I’m both excited and apprehensive. But I’m looking forward to the new challenges and learnings the role will bring with the support of my family by my side.
