About Samantha Toloza

Samantha Marie Toloza is a 4th-year student at Ateneo de Manila University majoring in BFA Creative Writing. She specializes in fiction writing and most of her works manifest the elements of realism and expressionism, as she draws inspiration from her experiences. She intends her stories to be an exploration of things that could’ve been, a quest to discover answers to her ‘what ifs’ in life.  Apart from practicing her craft as a writer, she explores other forms of art to find new hobbies such as sketching, singing, learning musical instruments, painting, and composing music.
