Currently based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Lauralyn is a Filipina third culture individual with around 14 years of experience in several diverse roles, from Multimedia Design to Branding & Marketing Communications to Project Management to Sales.
Lauralyn has worked with clients (paid & voluntary) from North America to Asia-Pacific. Some of the accounts and projects she’s handled cover the following industries:

By day, Lauralyn provides virtual event & digital marketing solutions to academic institutions like University of Malaya (Top 10 QS Asia University Rankings 2021) & event organisers like South China Morning Post and the Youth & Sports Ministry Malaysia.
By “night”, Lauralyn freelances (see: services
) and is part of the UN Women APAC 30 for 2030 network. She’s volunteered her time to several initiatives organised by the UN Women Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific – and their partners. The most recent endeavour was the 16 Days of Activism Campaign in 2021. Lauralyn is particularly interested in the intersection of human rights (especially women's rights, LGBTQ+ rights & sexual and reproductive health and rights), gender-based violence, health & wellbeing (including financial health), and the power of mass communication.
When Lauralyn isn’t working, volunteering, or learning/unlearning/relearning, she’s a human who does her best to live an authentic life while indulging in pleasures like comedy, singing, and dancing – to name a few. She is also open to connecting and collaborating with like-minded people. Send her a meme or if you're a social cause that needs help with your marketing & communications, drop her a note via Whatsapp, email, or slide into her DMs on social media.
