My name is Aureli Sinsuat. I was born in Quezon City, Philippines, but I spent my formative years in Seattle, a popular American city. After graduating from high school in Glendale, Arizona, I returned to the country of my birth for undergraduate studies. I am currently pursuing a BA in Political Science at the University of Philippines – Diliman.
Aside from politics, I also have a great interest in journalism. I wrote for my high school paper, and I have had work printed in the high school sports publication RISE Magazine, as well as the Manila Times and the Philippine Daily Inquirer. Also, I was fortunate enough to be named a 2008 Free Spirit Journalism Scholar by the Freedom Forum. (Free Spirits Forever!)
Over the past couple of years, I have discovered that I relish new experiences. It must be this spirit of adventure that prompted me to return to the Philippines. I have created this blog to share my experiences in the Philippines, to depict my impression of her – an estranged son reconciling with his motherland.
I can’t wait to see what is in store.
Sige na, thanks for reading.
