Hello! My name is Kleigh, I'm a Filipina freelance journalist based in NYC. I recently graduated from the New School with a bachelor of arts in Journalism + Design. I am incredibly passionate about telling stories of my community and redefining white-centric journalism. My writing centers around my interests in  fashion, art, trends, film, music, and everything in between.
In 2020, I started Kindergarten Mag with my best friend. Currently, I design the site's graphics and run the social media pages. I've also been able to do a lot of amazing things through Kindergarten, like selling stickers to raise money for the AAPI community and designing a physical zine of our summer issue.
