Bea is a senior multimedia reporter who's covered Congress, the national police, Philippine politics, and disasters for Rappler. She earned her communication degree from Ateneo de Manila University in 2011.
She is obsessed with basil and cooking as much as she obsesses over politics. In a different lifetime, she was a Rappler social media producer and the editor for the lifestyle and entertainment sections. She looks forward to the day when she can crochet without having to check YouTube tutorials.
