📍Hi! I'm Mika. I'm currently:

My One-Pager

✨ Building something new in fintech & web3, specifically giving financial superpowers to global professionals in emerging markets @ parallax.to

💼 Previously product lead @ LinkedIn Jobs, Kumu & Ripcord through the KPCB Product Fellowship. I started the Filip[in]os @ LinkedIn group & was a Women in Product executive member.

🎓 I graduated B.A. Economics, Psychology, Data Analysis from Wesleyan UniversityPhi Beta Kappa & a summa cum laude. I'm a proud Philippine Science High School scholar.

🇵🇭 I'm most passionate about broadening access through tech in emerging markets like my home, the Philippines & in the rest of S.E. Asia. On the side, I work(ed) on a virtual startup incubator for emerging markets, & launched a fun social card game.

⚡ Nowadays, I'm overloading on coffee & obsessing over payments. Any interesting ideas in web3, fintech and cross-border payments? Send me a note at hello@mikareyes.com.

My Dreams

  1. Create meaningful impact for women in tech (esp. founders).
  2. Grow technology economies in emerging markets (especially the Philippines).
  3. Establish a beach resort in the Philippines.
  4. Start and run a coffee shop.
  5. Start and run something like Studio Dance Club (dance classes by day, dance parties by night complete with dance instructors.)
  6. Bring crypto to the forefronts in a meaningful way, ideally addressing needs in global, emerging markets.
  7. Buy a home or pay for a trip for my parents.
  8. Teach a class. [done] Teach a class full-time
  9. Achieve the freedom to learn and dive deep into anything I want.
