For the curious..

Who are you? 

My name is Sharmaine Parrenas. My handle is @xharpism and there is a story behind it. My name is pretty common, every "Sharmaine" on Instagram has already taken over all the possible handles I could think of. So, I resorted to my sister for her suggestion and we came up with "xharpism" , XHAR for SHAR, the first syllable of my name and P for the first letter of my last name, and ISM signifies an artistic movement. And, that's how XHARPISM was born. 

 

Where are you from?

Ethnicity wise - I am Filipino. Therefore, I came from the Philippines. 

Residency wise - I am based in New York. (That's all there is to know. :P) 

 

What do you do?

Currently, I am an engineering student and a blogger.
