"I am not an advocate for too specific identity politics where my identity is tied to necessarily just me being a woman, a Filipina, a Cebuana, a manager, or a wife. There’s too much baggage. I do believe that there are many intersections for identity. A lot of mine was shaped by my being the eldest so I had to do many things independently. I had to learn on my own. And I’ve also just done things because I like to, not because I’m a woman or because of the work that I do. For example underwear, I really like lacy but subdued understated lingerie. I don’t do that thinking that my husband will see me or some other person. It’s just for me."
