Sheena Gonzales—an illustrator, a designer, a travel writer, and a blogger—is the wandering, creative mind behind the travel and lifestyle website Sheena Loves Sunsets. But most of all, she is a blissful wife and a mom with two kids.
Sheena Gonzales on her passionate journey to write
As theAsianparent-Philippines got in touch with this amazing woman, we barely imagine how meticulously Sheena, 31, manages her daily routines with her two kids around. Having been able to sneak us in her schedule, Sheena recalled about how her passion for travel and writing together has always been close to heart since the early years.
“It has always been a childhood dream to work as a travel writer. Now, as a freelance travel writer, I not only get to do things that I love (travel, taking photos and writing) but it also gives me the time and freedom to be hands-on with my kids.”
As Sheena puts it, through her websites and social media accounts, she writes for the reason to share her adventures touring around the world. It always goes with an emphasis on God’s unwavering works in her life.
Thus, it’s a personal goal for her “to inspire families to go see the beauty of God’s creations first hand[.] So that in the process, they will stand in awe of God’s majesty and praise Him alone (that includes the little ones!).” It comes especially true now that she is a wife and a mom of her very own family.
