We always say that it takes a special type of person to work as a SupaAgent, or just any freelancing jobs in general. Without the constraints of an office environment, it takes discipline and planning in order to make the most out of a career as a freelancer. Speaking to April’s SupaAgent of the month, Sarah, about how she organizes her time really showed us how she made the most out of her role as a SupaAgent so far.
Our SupaAgent of the month greets us all the way from Batangas, a magnetic province in Philippines that many tourists frequent during their summer vacations. One can unwind in its tranquil beaches, discover a rich cultural heritage, or even seek adventure near the active Taal Volcano!
SupaAgent Ruby is a diligent and high-spirited mother with a quirky sense of humor. Alongside a supportive partner of 10 years, Daryl, or ‘Pag-ibig’ as she calls him, she currently cares for a 6 year old boy and a 2 year old girl, Heineken and Hennessy – named after our couple’s favourite drinks from their youthful days!
Our SupaAgent of the month resides in Quezon City, the largest city in the Philippines by area and population, even heralded as the country’s capital at one point!
In a sentence, SupaAgent Jerwin, is a humble and positive character with broad interests and talents. According to him, the song which describes him best is Basket Case by Green Day – for all that, after you read this article you’ll come to understand why that’s grossly misleading at best. Jerwin enjoys playing basketball and based on a hunch, occasionally plays the air guitar to some of his favourite punk bands.
If it ever was so fitting, our SupaAgent of this month can most accurately be described as the Jill of all trades, whilst being the master of time, organisation and spirit.
A mother of two beautiful girls, Nikka resides in the renowned ‘Queen City of the South’ in a country known for its cultural diversity founded upon a rich cauldron of diaspora- Cebu, Philippines.

Our SupaAgent of the Month for December hails all the way from the Philippines which he describes as a place where “Christmas begins in September and ends on the second Sunday of January!”
