Iana has always been a closeted writer, but this time around feels different. She is actively choosing to write about the moments that hurt, the truths no one sees, and the joys that are seldom celebrated. This style of writing is her love letter to all the spaces and shadows that we don’t talk about, all the voices that cannot speak up, and all the love that gets misplaced. Teaching yoga and backpacking around the Philippines has taught her how to stick to your truth and adjust your delivery. Writing has become her companion through all masks and walks of life, and she continues to write with her heart on her sleeve.
