Blog Watch seeks voter empowerment , citizen engagement and governance transformation. Initially called a Blog Watch project for the 2010 elections, it was our vision to simply provide another avenue to promote voter education. We found ourselves extending the project beyond the 100 day honeymoon period of President Noynoy Aquino. Today, Blog Watch focuses on the continuing education of the online community on proper citizen monitoring, good governance , voter education and digital citizenship. Most of all , we wanted a platform for our citizen advocates.
As an intern, you will be involved in our work as a nonpartisan citizens’ watchdog and collective conscience for transparency and good governance. You will be exposed to the following
1. Social media engagement and Hashtag campaigns for advocacy projects
3. Content curation and their tools
4. Commentary and feature writing with your own byline for our Blog Watch Citizen Media site.
5. Taking videos and photos for our Blog Watch Citizen Media site.
6. Coverage of forums and interviews using various multimedia tools including live tweeting or live blogging

I am an advocate. I am NOT neutral. I will NOT give social media mileage to members of political clans, epal, a previous candidate for the same position and those I believe are a waste of taxpayers' money.
I do not support or belong to any political party. I was part of accredited media covering the Office of the Vice President and Leni Robredo as she ran as a presidential aspirant in the 2022 National and local elections.
On August 5, 2021, YouTube announced that I was selected as one of 50 Program participants of its Creator Program for Independent Journalists
She was a Senior Consultant for ALL media engagements for the PCOO-led Committee on Media Affairs & Strategic Communications (CMASC) under the ASEAN 2017 National Organizing Council from January 4 -July 5, 2017.
