Jem is 30 years old. She grew up in a village of Cagayan Valley, northeast of the Philippines. She completed a degree in Health Sciences at the Medical Colleges of Northern Philippines. She wants to continue her studies in nursing but due to financial constraints, she had to work abroad. After working three years in Hong Kong, she is now working at Moscow. She loves taking pictures, especially of birds because they remind her of herself. She embraces freedom and likes to chart her own path in life. She joined Lensational in May 2013 after reading about it in The Sun, the major Filipino newspaper in Hong Kong.
