“The world was hers for the reading.”

Hi! My name is Zayda. I was born on February 9, 2003, and I’m 15. I was born in New Jersey in the US, but I’m Filipino. I’ve been in Myanmar for eight years, almost nine. However, I still can’t speak Myanmar. I can speak Filipino and English fluently, and I used to learn ASL by signing to songs. I stopped, but I’m planning on taking it up again. I have a twin sister, my mom, my grandparents, three uncles, five cousins, and eight aunts.
Things I Like
- Books, such as
- Percy Jackson
- Kane Chronicles
- The Land of Stories
- The Trials of Apollo
- Magnus Chase and The Norse Gods
- The Mortal Instruments
- The Infernal Devices
- The Dark Artifices
- Music, such as
- Taylor Swift
- Fall Out Boy
- My Chemical Romance
- Twenty One Pilots
- Ice Cream
- Dan and Phil
- Marvel (Especially Captain America and Bucky Barnes)
- The Greenhouse Academy
I know. Nerd. The bookshelf at home contains literally stacks of books. My mom sighs whenever my sister and I go to a bookstore. When we go back to school shopping in the Philippines, we get distracted by the books. Books!
I’m also a feminist. I tend to talk about human rights, women’s rights, what’s going on in the US, and equality often. I can and will rant about those topics if you get me going, although quite a lot of it is centered around the US since that’s what I see online most of the time. Anyway, that’s it about me.

Love this Zayda! You are incredibly smart and interesting. Nice to always meet a fellow bookworm. Good blog post. Keep up the nice work.
