We’d like to welcome aboard Mariel Vera Go, our chapter’s Assistant Events and Publicity Coordinator. Here she is in the photo above, clearly enjoying a visit to a public library in Indiana.
Mariel is a graphic designer, illustrator and writer who is published in collaborative works like the WWF Workbook Climate Change Changes Everything and the Ang Ilustrador ng Kabataan (Ang INK) anthology, Mga Tambay sa Tabi-Tabi.
She is a New Client Implementation Manager in a proudly Philippine-owned global design BPO. Enjoying the experience of client interaction, widened travel horizons and working with high-caliber professionals has been unmatched. However, with new interests to pursue, she prefers to consult. She is focused on carving a niche in Children and YA Publishing through SCBWI and Ang INK, plus exploring storytelling for children and the elderly.
We look forward to having Mariel join us in planning and implementing our various plans for distinctively SCBWI Philippine events in children’s & YA books. We’re so happy to have Mariel, so now there’s five in our team: Nikki Torres, Assistant Regional Advisor; Neni Sta. Romana Cruz, Chapter Advisory Board Member; Karina Bolasco, Chapter Advisory Board Member; Beaulah Taguiwalo, Regional Advisor; and Mariel Vera Go, Assistant Events and Publicity Coordinator. — BPT
