Vernise L. Tantuco
Vernise Tantuco is on Rappler's Research Team, fact checking suspicious claims, wrangling data, and telling stories that need to be heard.
Before working with the Research Team, Vern was the desk editor for our Lifestyle and Entertainment section, where she talked to celebrities, ate and photographed food, traveled, and hosted our music show Rappler Live Jam.
She graduated from Ateneo de Manila University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Management, major in Communications Technology Management, and a minor in Literature (English).
When she's not writing, reading, or dreaming up stories, Vern can be found binge watching TV shows, practicing yoga, and enjoying stationery, astrology, and makeup.
