I am Layla, a thirty-something Filipina grad student who is also a public servant.

Recently, I’ve decided to use my real name as my blog name. I am hoping to make this blog a little more professional; perhaps to share my graduate school work, and one day a more streamlined portfolio of more creative work.

I’m presently working closely with The Friday Book Club, a young organisation working on helping children with no convenient access to books, reading, and learning–to gain that access. We organise book drives, mini-art workshops, and storytelling sessions.

Want to work with me or The Friday Book Club? Please feel free to shoot an email to either one of these email addresses:
