Course – Advanced Diploma in Business, Leadership and Management

I moved to Perth in March 2020 and studied Advanced Diploma in Business, Leadership and Management.

Perth reminds me of my hometown, Cebu in the Philippines – surrounded by great beaches, a laidback vibe, brilliant sunsets and amazing food.

Ever since I was young, I always envisioned myself becoming a businesswoman. When I was 16 years old, and I already commenced business by selling printed shirts for more than 100 people. I found joy and passion in talking with people, and it just happened naturally. Credits to my Mum, as she showed me what success means from building her own business starting from scratch whilst encountering challenges and problems along the way. Her resilience to do anything just to get her dream business was my inspiration, and here I am today aspiring to become like her or even a better version. My future aspiration is to become a sustainable businesswoman in the fashion and fitness industry in Western Australia.

I enjoy starting my mornings with yoga, as this allows me to start my day with some body movement and mindfulness. I partake in kickboxing to allow myself some exercise, plus I really enjoy it.
