Isabel Gatuslao- Creative Pinoy



Every race in this world has something to be proud of and thankful for. I’m from thePhilippines. It’s a third world country, but with thriving economy and frequently-challenged-yet-fun-loving folks.

When I saw what my brother wrote about an astounding local invention made of bamboo (loudbasstard), I felt the nudge to feature another fellow Filipino with indigenous creative talent- a local figure who makes really good produce and deserving to be known globally. And that is someone who could make you and me feel proud of being a Pinoy! This is also for everyone to know that our talents are not just limited to singing or boxing. I can humbly say that we have much to give to the rest of the whole wide world.

So, here’s one creative Filipino who has been making a mark in design. I would like to introduce to you the utterly gifted Isabel Gatuslao.

I think I’m starting to be a big fan! It’s inspiring to know people like Isabel Gatuslao who fearlessly pursue what they cherish no matter what the cost is. Now, I’m learning too!
