WHO I AM:
I’m Monic Del Rosario, a Brand and Communications Marketing Professional residing in Manila, Philippines. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Development Studies from the University of the Philippines, and briefly took up Master of International Studies from the same institution. On the side, I also do photography gigs.
I’ve always been fascinated with creativity. My artistic journey started in preschool when I realized drawing is something I enjoy doing. Since then I continued to improve and find new techniques, even trying out digital sketching. To see some of my drawings, click here.
Growing up, I also joined journalism clubs in school. I have experience in competing in inter-school journalism competitions, including Photojournalism, and Feature Writing. I also joined several poster-making contests, and fortunately won a couple of them. In addition, I competed in several academic Language Contests, coveting for titles in terms of grammar proficiency, spelling, reading, among many others; my specialty was, and still is, the English language.
Today, I do creative output and direction in terms of content writing, curation, and layouts. I continuously sketch, paint, and take photos during my free time. Other interests of mine are science, animals, nature, yoga, video and gaming content, and news and current affairs.
WHAT I DO:
A communications and marketing professional, I study and make art when I’m not working – writing, painting, sketching, photography. You may view some of my works here: Writing Portfolio | Painting Portfolio | Sample Photography
Previous jobs I’ve had included public relations and corporate communications, marketing content creation and curation, campaigns strategy, account management, B2B investments, and government service.
