  • Hope spent much of her career working in television news production.
  • She also spent much of that time being a single mother, and learning that "having it all" comes at a cost.
  • The best part of her life was spent raising a son who knows how to respect women and a daughter who doesn't view gender as a barrier to great things.


Hope spent years in television, working for NBC Asia, CNN International, and Bloomberg TV with a focus on international politics and business. Her interest in viewing events through a woman's perspective came in handy when she began working at The List. Hope currently spends her time keeping up with current affairs and indulging in her other passion, reading about food.


Hope has a degree in interdisciplinary studies from the Ateneo de Manila University, where she studied under Filipino culinary giant Doreen Fernandez who was one of her writing professors. She also has a Master of Sociology (with Distinction) from The University of Hong Kong, with a focus on Media, Culture, and Creative Cities.
