Young Blood

Philippine Tatler - - FACES -

At a fresh age of 23, Alessan­dra Poblador— or Alex—is quite the achiever. A grad­u­ate of com­puter science in Columbia Univer­sity, she now works as project man­ager in AIG and is based in New York.

Dur­ing her free time, she can be found read­ing the news or books on fic­tion and his­tory. She also likes strolling around her Brook­lyn neigh­bour­hood which has been her home for six years now. She ad­vo­cates for women’s em­pow­er­ment and en­vi­ron­men­tal preser­va­tion, im­prov­ing ac­cess to ed­u­ca­tion and in­for­ma­tion, as well as in­creas­ing civic re­spon­si­bil­ity and po­lit­i­cal en­gage­ment. She lists Hil­lary Clin­ton, Bey­oncé, Chi­ma­manda Ngozi Adichie, and Elon Musk as her in­spi­ra­tions.

The only daugh­ter out of real es­tate bro­ker Sandie Poblador and law prac­ti­tioner Manuel Poblador’s three chil­dren, Alex would like to fol­low the spir­i­tu­al­ity of her par­ents. She ad­mires their sense of in­di­vid­u­al­ism and abil­ity to en­joy life. A trav­eller, hiker, cy­clist, and yogi, she would like to achieve her full po­ten­tial some­day and also hopes to write for Na­tional Ge­o­graphic.
