I wanted to create a space where I can safely and freely explore my design style while reconnecting with my roots. I started to feel like a stranger to my own culture because of being away for so long so I created Sampaguita Creative as a way to keep my memories alive and to help other Filipinxs abroad by creating tools that educate and help with the generational transfer of culture. Projects include nostalgic illustrations that remind us of home and educational resources to help future generations speak our language, learn about our traditions and culture.
