About me

I'm a freelance journalist with 6+ years experience covering a wide range of cultural topics – from the Philippines' war on drugs, the future of art patronage, to London's cycling politics. I'm also currently Studio Production Manager at Marco Brambilla Studio. I have an interdisciplinary background in non-profit, marketing, academia and publishing, with practical skills in research and development, media production and copywriting. I'm always looking for a new challenge. So, try me. me@saivillafuerte.com www.saivillafuerte.com

Awards

2015

Visual and Creative Arts Award

Council for Independent Education (CIFE)

  • "Anna Isabelle Villafuerte received the CIFE award for Visual and Creative Arts. Anna joined DLD in 2012 from her home in the Philippines to enjoy an English education with the intention of moving on to a British university. As a photographer, she clearly has an intelligent approach to the visual world. As a creative writer, Anna has great flair and originality: she produced an excellent portfolio that demonstrated imaginative ambition, stylistic control and superb sense of narrative structure. Anna is a very thorough and resourceful student who is determined to succeed. She is now reading International Politics at City University, London. Anna was an extremely mature, highly motivated student who thrived at A-Level. She strengthened and enhanced her official studies with a range of extra-curricular related activities that displayed exceptional energy and determination, spending much of her free time involved in professional and cultural activities related to her studies."
