Hi. I’m Bianca. I am a twenty-something writer, (aspiring) stray animal whisperer, and wonder-er on a mission. I live in the Philippines, where I work with amazing young people and teams across the world, learning and engaging in God’s mission as we go.
I love Jesus; my faith is integral to who I am and the way I see the world, and ultimately, how I interact with it. At the end of the day, I’m a normal person who trips up in both major and minor ways, getting by on Grace, wanting to make a difference wherever I am called.
I am passionate about getting to the core of God, people, and the world. This comes out in my work (mobilization, facilitating the discovery that there is so much more to being a Christian than church once a week), my artistry (creative expression of a truth or concept, thereby illuminating a different side of said truth or concept), and my love of people’s stories (debrief, helping others make sense of themselves, asking the right questions to arrive at an often unexpected, but nonetheless truthful, answer).
I have always needed to write something down to make sense of it. Paper helps me see where the ideas fit; it’s like steadily collecting all the puzzle pieces I need to complete a large and intricate picture, but I need the space to try putting the pieces down in the right order.
This blog is that space, with every important milestone yielding its share of puzzle pieces–mostly musings on creativity, culture, and the universal human experience, as we wander and wonder through life.
If you can’t find the words to tell your story, I hope this helps.
