About Nica C.T.

Hello, my name is Nica. 

I'm an artist and creative non-fiction writer. I write about food, love, and creativity. My work is often called honest.

I am a Manila girl ~ which means I grew up riding jeepneys, taxis, tricycles, and air-conditioned cars. After graduating high school in the Philippines, I moved to California to study why poverty exists while an undergraduate at UC Berkeley. Such themes are embedded in my writing practice and career as a worker and policy organizer in California.

Besides writing, I experiment with mediums like paint, textile, and paper to discover new ways to tell a story. Kwento by Nica is my living memoir of creativity with a beginning and (so far) no end.

Nice to meet you!

 Nica was a 2022 Fiction Fellow for emerging writers of color at the San Francisco's Writers Grotto. She is completing her MFA in Creative Writing at San Jose State University and works as a Policy Organizer for labor and environmental organizations in California.
