About

My name is Dennisa Villa, born and raised in Cebu, Philippines.
I moved here to California since 2012.
Back home, I majored in Linguistics and Arts at the University of San Carlos, Cebu, Philippines.
I’m a current Santa Monica College student, major in Broadcasting Journalism, transferring to a four-year university to get my degree here in the US.
I self-studied the English language when I was seven years old.
I would read piles of books that my grandfather had on his bookshelf.
I was in love with discovering new words. I think that’s how I became a logophilia.
I used to compete in journalistic competitions back in the Philippines. I was one of the chosen students to represent the school’s press conference. Now, this was just a part of school activity. However, at that moment, I think it led me to discover my forte. It took me several years to figure out what exactly I want to do in life. There are so many career options in the world, but journalism got my heart. That’s how my passion in English language, writing and public speaking sprouted.

I created this site to share beautiful and heart-captivating stories of people, places, experiences, and ideas in Southern California, particularly in Santa Monica and Venice Beach.
