Marjorie Gavan is a Technical Writer (a job she constantly needs to explain to people) from the Philippines who is passionate about writing, reading, traveling, and volunteering. These four things have long since transcended its functions and meaning as mere leisure pursuits. These are now integral to Marge’s survival as she uses these passions to manage her clinical depression — a condition she has since high school although she would not be officially diagnosed until 2012.
Born a fighter, Marjorie battles her way out of bouts of depression by making good of her time, both professionally and on a more personal level.
This B.S. Journalism graduate from Lyceum of the Philippines has come a long way from the skinny 11-year-old who secretly writes poetry. She now has 14 years of writing and editing experience in the field of marketing, public relation, technical writing, government service, and blogging.
She is one of those people who always complains about not having enough money but still travels a lot and eats a damn lot too. She loves drinking coffee and is planning to make the addiction more meaningful by taking a coffee-making course. She can visualize herself owning her own cafe in the near future and she plans to name it after her blog, Coffeehan.
