Grad Student, Uninterrupted is a little space in the internet that I can call mine.

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

The blog title is in part inspired by one of myfavourite movies, Girl, Interrupted. In this case, however, I want to continue telling stories—no matter how sad, corny, or mundane they may be.

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:
