Tes Silverman was born in Manila, Philippines and has been a New Yorker for over 40 years. Moving from the Philippines to New York opened the doors to the possibility of a life of writing and travel. Before starting a family, she traveled to Iceland, Portugal, Belgium, and France, all the while writing about the people she met through her adventures. After starting a family, she became a freelance writer for publications such as Newsday’s Parents & Children and various local newspapers. In 2014, she created her blog, The Pinay Perspective. PinayPerspective.com was designed to provide women of all ages and nationalities the space to discuss the similarities and differences on how we view life and the world around us. As a result of her blog, she has written for BlogHer.com and has been invited to attend and blog about the Social Good Summit and Mom+Social Good. In addition, she was the Managing Editor of a newsletter for a local grassroots activism group, ATLI(Action Together Long Island). Currently residing in Virginia Beach, VA, she is the host and producer of r(E)volutionary Woman podcast and the World Voice Editor for World Moms Network, continuing to write stories of women and children who make an impact in their communities and provide them a place to vocalize their passions.
