my story…

i help creatives build a business they love & start living their dream.

hey there!

I’m Silvia, a designer who loves what I do. I’ve been coding since I was fifteen and started designing when I turned sixteen. I’m a bookworm, and I especially love the old ones with that unique, nostalgic smell. Writing is also a passion of mine, and I’ve even written three novels.

I’ve also found that freelancing and working remotely are the best fit for me. They allow me to collaborate with people from all over the world, and I love that I can work from anywhere. That’s why I’ve started writing about freelancing, design, and productivity on my blog. I believe that sharing what I know with others is what makes me truly happy.

I love connecting with like-minded individuals and helping them reach their full potential. I believe that we all have something valuable to offer, and by sharing our knowledge and experiences, we can make the world a better place.

I’m always looking for new ways to expand my knowledge and skills, and I’m excited to see where my journey takes me. Thanks for taking the time to learn a little bit more about me. If you have any questions or would like to connect, feel free to reach out!

Cheers,
Silvia Auralia

HOW IT ALL BEGAN

let’s do what we love

I was a wide-eyed sophomore in high school, barely 15, when I got hooked on coding. The internet raised me right! I spent my teenage years glued to the computer, learning tons of cool stuff online and teaching myself the art of coding. I even had my own hobby blog back then. It was pretty awesome.

Back in the day, I had no clue what I wanted to be when I grew up, other than the typical “doctor” suggestion everyone seemed to throw at me (as an asian). But then I crossed paths with my best-friend, he was a junior designer at ed-tech company. His work was so impressive, it got me inspired. I didn’t take myself too seriously at first, I was at the whole medical student gig. But life had plans for me ~

My mom always dropped these nuggets of wisdom on me “Do your own thing, don’t follow the crowd. Don’t chase someone else’s dream just because it seems cool. Do what you love, be passionate about it, and kick ass at it.” So, that’s how my career began. I can still feel the excitement of that first paycheck and working with a client for the very first time.

I’m so proud of the person I’ve become along the way. I’ve had the pleasure of teaming up with all sorts of cool companies and startups, taking on freelance gigs, and working with folks from all over the world. It’s been an eye-opening experience that has shaped me into who I am today as a person and designer. So, take a look around, and hopefully, you’ll find something that speaks to you!

i believe in…

001.

generosity.

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. It’s not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving.

002.

perseverance.

Strength grows in the moments when you think you can’t go on but you keep going anyway. I believe that success is not an accident.

003.

blessings.

Somebody didn’t wake up today, but you did. That’s enough reason to stop complaining, and that’s enough to be thankful for.
