Corabelle Guevarra

Corabelle, outside her full-time job as a Digital Marketing Manager in Clark, she still makes time for her hobbies, be with her family and friends, travel, and work on a side business. Someday she wishes to fulfill her travel goals by being able to visit all the beautiful islands of the Philippines and see the sights of the different countries in Asia and the world. Just like anyone who has that wanderlust gene, Corabelle’s mantra is: “work, save, travel… repeat.”
