She grew up and studied in an ashram from primary to secondary school where she lived a life of minimalism and mindfulness under the care of Vaishnava devotees. She is currently based in San Diego, California pursuing a creative life as an artist to communicate stories on climate, mindfulness, minimalism, and Filipino pride.
