With the belief that writing can take you places and traveling can inspire you to write, Nikka pursued a career as a lifestyle journalist. Her work has taken her to her dream destinations, which she has written about, and which have been immortalized in various print and online publications.
Graduating with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication Arts from the University of the Philippines Los Baños, she got her feet wet in the local publishing industry before becoming a full-time freelance writer. Since then, she has written several features for Mabuhay, asianTraveler, Travelife, Spark, Business World, Highlife, Mango, Metro, Metro Society, GMA News Online, ClicktheCity.com, Spot.ph, Herword.com, and FemaleNetwork.com.
Nikka has also been published in Filipino publications abroad such as Filipino Star News in Michigan, Hawaii Filipino Chronicle, and Dubai-based magazine Illustrado. With her work, she was able to interact with movie celebrities, former ambassadors, and other interesting personalities. Aside from meeting and interviewing different characters, she particularly enjoys writing about travel, food, and other lifestyle-related features.
She is currently a Contributing Editor in Smile, the in-flight magazine of Cebu Pacific Air, and is also the Content Manager of OfficiallyPhilippines.com, a local website that aims to be the ultimate travel guide to the Philippines. She prefers to always keep her writer’s hat on since she believes that anything can be turned into a story.
