About the Isparkleen
Hi. I prefer to be called MM on most occasions. I’m a writer/magazine editor/graduate student based in Manila, Philippines. I like stars and I wanted to come up with a name that has “spark” (because it sounds so strong) and “Lee” (because Lee Ryan is my fave) in it, hence isparkleen.
Disclaimer: The views expressed here do not necessarily reflect the views of the publication I work for.
I graduated with a degree in Communication Arts from University of Santo Tomas some years back. Currently, I am pursuing a master’s degree in Journalism at Ateneo de Manila University.
I am also a geek at times, with great interest on technology, specifically gadgets and social media.
One of my biggest dreams is to tour the world, try various authentic cuisines and have tourist-y photos taken. I plan to fangirl while I’m at it (Check out my Last.fm for artists I listen to).
Professionally speaking, I was first published in a broadsheet when I was 12. I started writing for Candy while in college, and moved on to a home and design magazine, where I learned the ropes and climbed the ladder in the span of four years.
