I took up BA English Studies (Language) in UP Diliman thinking that it would be my pre-law course, but in my third year, I fell in love with studying the structure of a sentence. My love grew deeper when I took a sociolinguistics class. I knew then and there that my dream changed from being a lawyer to being a teacher who aims to show other people how exciting studying languages can be. I am currently finishing my MA degree in English Studies (Language). Some of my research interests are language and gender, language education, language policies and politics, language and identity, semantics, and sociolinguistics.
