Meet Pauline Superable, WYA’s New Multimedia Manager

“If I have dignity, others must have dignity too,” WYA’s new Multimedia Manager, Pauline Superable, recalls this quote when asked how she sees her own life correlating with WYA’s beliefs. “It was WYA that taught me how valuable it was to be aware of your own worth. Growing up in the Philippines has exposed me to a lot of crimes against the dignity of the human person, particularly in the current administration. There is war, poverty, crime etc. Seeing people being treated with such inequality and disrespect, and having their rights taken away from them without good reason really makes you realize how vital it is to teach people about human dignity.”

Hailing from Manila, Philippines, Pauline graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Multimedia Arts at the De La Salle – College of Saint Benilde. She first learned about WYA through her brother who was then a regional intern at the Asia Pacific office before becoming a marketing intern at the headquarters in New York. “I stayed because of the people that I’ve met. Being a part of WYA has given me the opportunity to meet people who have inspired me in many ways. My co-interns (both from my Asia Pacific and New York internships), the staff members, and the people that I’ve met along the way have now become a big part of my life and I’m grateful. Cheesy? I know. But it’s true!”

As the incoming Multimedia Manager for WYA, Pauline shares a few of the goals she would like to focus on, “First, I would like to figure out ways on how I can help improve WYA’s marketing collaterals without affecting the brand of the organization. I would also like to gain new members by trying out different techniques and strategies. Furthermore, I hope to increase our page likes, page interactions, and page visits by looking into our social media statistics and being smart about when, what, and how to post. And finally, I plan to get more people involved by designing posters and ads that encourage interaction between the members (and non-members).”

As she looks forward to becoming part of the WYA staff, Pauline shares, “I love the work that I do. Graphic design and illustration have always been a big part of my life, and to be a part of an organization that welcomes these skills is an honor.”
