Ruby is a fierce believer in artists utilizing their platform to speak up about social issues. Thus, Ruby is a vocal activist for voting in this election and the Black Lives Matter movement, while also advocating against the injustices currently occurring in the Philippines. She is also a research-scientist in a biotech company focusing on COVID-19 test kits and a potential vaccine! Sign-up today to secure a spot in this concert and discussion! Spaces are limited.
