Hello! My name is GELAINE SANTIAGO.
I’m a modern gal in my mid-20’s living and working in Toronto. In 2015, I was tired of being a corporate zombie so I quit my 9-to-5 day job in HR and marketing to start my own business. These days, I’m co-founder of Cambio Market, an online boutique selling socially responsible and uniquely made products sourced from social enterprises around the world. I also founded ChooseSocial.PH, an online directory of social enterprises in the Philippines.
Besides starting things, I’m also a language learner, foodie, travel junkie, and tech geek wannabe. I write a lot about entrepreneurship and startups, leadership, recruitment, and marketing. But I also write about social media, travel adventures, non-profits and social enterprises, and whatever new topic happens to tug at my curiosity.
As Robin Sharma said, “don’t live the same year 75 times and call it a life.” Nothing beats learning something new, so might as well write about it.
