What do you love about working for Thrive so far?
I love the support and guidance of my teammates. I enjoy having someone to share ideas and experiences with while working.
When you’re not at work, how do you spend your time?
I spend it with my family. I also do a bit of cooking, baking and catching up with my Netflix shows. Before the pandemic, we would travel to parks and recreation areas near our city.

If you could be any character from any book or movie, who would you be?

Where did you grow up and what is special about that place?
I grew up in a small town in Mindanao, which is the southern part of the Philippines. It’s a special place because it reminds me of a time when life was simpler. We played outside for hours, most people knew each other and you can walk into anyone’s house and feel at home.
