Hi, I'm Hannah and I write about thinking, productivity and lifelong learning.
Thank you for stopping by! Let me introduce myself a little more.
I’m a 28-year-old based in Manila, Philippines, but I consider myself a global citizen. I have three main roles in life.
Three Things About Me
I’m an entrepreneur, co-managing our family business, a real estate company. My dad founded it in 2010 with a vision of developing leisure properties all over the Philippines. The challenge for me today is transforming it into a well-managed company since he passed away last year. Good thing I find much joy in serving people, from customers to employees.
I’m a creative educator, helping lifelong learners think better, work smart, and live with purpose. Much of who I am today I owe to non-formal education and real-life experiences. Over time, I’ve collected mental models, habits, and first principles to navigate life, and I delight in sharing them with others. I do this by writing, creating video content, and hosting talks and workshops.
I’m a global volunteer, often a participant, facilitator, or speaker for social impact programs on education and entrepreneurship. I embrace opportunities to mentor young, bright-eyed students with the drive to make a difference. I enjoy working with culturally diverse teams united by a common goal.
Three Things I Love
First: adventure. From strolling around Manila’s old Spanish town to standing before the picturesque beauty of the Rockies, from gasping for air to climb to a summit to diving over a shipwreck for corals, I love anything that allows me to explore a world different from my own. I like to take in and absorb the history, culture, and character of a place and its people.
The second is learning. To me, every waking moment is an educational one. Books, podcasts, and documentaries fill my time. I enjoy talking to people I can learn much from as much as I like teaching what I know. Pursuing understanding makes my life a grand flow experience. It’s fun and I’m never done.
The last one is the source of all the good that comes from my being: my love for God. Over my workaday life looms an overarching purpose: to glorify Him. My faith shapes my worldview, and the more I search for truth, the more I am convinced that there is no greater joy in this life than having His love and salvation.
