Jee Geronimo knew she wanted to write as early as high school, but all throughout college did not know what exactly to write about.

She explored all possibilities as a Communication major in Ateneo, even joining the school publication The GUIDON and spending her internship with investigative news magazine Newsbreak. It was not until her first job in a small high school in Laguna that she found what she is most passionate about: education.

Jee covers the promising sector of education, and believes good education governance means cascading every reform down to the last teacher and student. And while she still cringes at most of her blogs back in high school, she thinks it was one of the best times of her life. She hopes every student can say the same about school.

Jee also writes about health and, on rare occasions, Asian culture. She has decided to live vicariously through Asian drama series until she starts backpacking across the continent. She also hopes to visit Israel someday to retrace the steps of her Savior.
