This is a smorgasbord of items. “Relevant” ones are not necessarily writing-related or directly work-related, but still worth mentioning. Expect more certifications or updates (and images as I have yet to take pictures or scan stuff) to be added here in the future. Feel free to click on the images.

***NOTES: To explain the differences in my name on the certificates…
- In case you’re confused, Federizo is my maiden last name. Just to add a background info, my mother’s maiden last name was “del Barrio”.
- When I was small, the conventional way to write last names that had “de”, “del”, “dela” and “de los” in them was to start with a small letter and have the next word start with a capital letter (ergo, “del Barrio”). That was why when writing initials, one would write “B” rather than “D”. That’s what we grew up using. In the last decades, the rules changed to using two letters like “dB”, then the small letter became a capital as well, so it was “Db/DB”. These days, the required format is the one using the first letter, so I am left with “D” now. For me, both of “dB/DB” and “B” work as my middle initial, though I still personally prefer the last. I just leave it to agencies I submit forms to to decide what to put on my IDs. If I really have to, I follow the rules and use “D”.
- Note to non-Filipinos: What we consider as our middle names are our mother’s maiden last names. So for example, my daughter was named “Zoe F. Enriquez”.
