Experience

Hope was a news segment and show producer for NBC Asia, CNN, and Bloomberg TV; she also spent some years as a contributor for BBC features with a focus on the environment. Whenever she needed to recover from news burnout, Hope was lucky enough to find work in the food and beverage space, first as a food editor, and then in the marketing communications department of The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong where she spent most of her time in the hotel's kitchen picking up tips and tricks from the hotel's executive and pastry chefs. The highlight of her hotel PR career involved assisting in the organization of its first-ever Charity White Truffle Auction, which raised tens of thousands of Euros for a local children's charity.

Education

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.
