Hi, my name is Desiree.


I’m a twenty-two-year-old Filipino-Chinese girl from Manila, Philippines. While preparing for postgraduate studies in the United Kingdom this coming fall, I am currently immersed in writing, design, photography, reading fiction, travel, brushing up on my Mandarin, and getting to know wonderful people every chance I get. In 2012, I graduated from the Ateneo de Manila University with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. I love walk-friendly cities, airports, libraries, social media, colors that are difficult to name, and taking pictures of strangers and beautiful things.

I would love to do meaningful work and new projects with you. Kindly contact me at desireetan [at] outlook [dot] com. Meanwhile, perhaps you could visit my blog, or follow me on Twitter.
