Freeze | Jerleen Nicole N. Buenavista

BORN in Davao City on Aug. 16, 2000, Jerleen Nicole Nabos Buenavista wants to become a pilot. “Nikki, Jerleen, Niks” is studying at the Asian International School of Aeronautics and Technology (AISAT) to make her dream come true. Drawing and collecting pets occupy her free time.This 17-year-old girl considers becoming the 2016-2017 President of the Artist Guild at the Holy Cross of Davao College (HCDC) as her best achievement so far. She won 2nd runner up in the sketch wars of engineering and architecture at the Ateneo de Davao University. Nikki was champion in a poster-making contest during a math festival at AISAT. AT HCDC, she won “unang gantimpala bilang masigasig na paglahok sa pagdiriwang ng buwan ng wikang pambansa (first prize for enthusiastically joining the celebration of the national language month).”

Miss Buenavista is glad to have received a certificate of appreciation for participating in the Visual Arts Workshop organized by the Act for Children with Guhit Pinas Davao last Apr. 14, 2018, at Matina Central Elementary School.

Jerleen said she got depressed when her grandfather died in 2014. She quit art for some time. Fellow artists from Guhit Pinas succeeded to convince her to draw again. She feels grateful to her artist friends for helping her put on a brave face and carry on with art.
