I am Ma. Karenina Galang Patac, a Mass Communications major in Journalism graduate from Centro Escolar University in the Philippines. Called Karen or Yen by friends and family, I have always considered myself as a passionate yet reluctant writer. My love for words, poetry, and doodling is strong, yet I am not confident to share my works with the rest of the world. Given that, I entered the world of the newspaper publishing industry, first as a proofreader for various sections in the Editorial Department and later on as a staff assistant/writer for the Advertising Department. In Advertising, I was given the opportunity to travel locally to interview local chief executives and write about their projects for their constituents and their turf. With the help of my editor, when given a writing assignment, my pieces made it to press, which made my reluctant writer heart happy and elated. I was also tasked to do the editing of press releases submitted by PR agencies that will be included in the newspaper’s next day issue. Now I am a digital content editor for e-learning courses and modules and, the passion for writing just keeps on burning.
