Her early years were exposed to the beauty of nature, simple and slow-paced life. Her poems entitled: God's Orchestra and the Tall Trees In Our Backyard depict her profound love for the natural world.

In college, for a brief period of time, she tried news reporting at the Dawn, the official student publication of the University of the East. She has also served as the news editor of the Sulyap, the official newsletter of the UE Political Science Society.

She once hated poems because of their intricacies and ambiguities.But she found solace when she tried writing free verse poems as a tribute to her father when he died in 2016.

Her poems often deal with social problems that beset mankind: War Is A Vicious Cycle, Rebellion Is A Descendant Of Harsh Hands and Pain Of Lies to name a few.

She was born to parents Florante Dacuag Juan, Sr.(deceased) and Trifona Mangapit Recido Juan. She has only one sibling, Florante Juan, Jr..
