Ruby Ibarra – Scientist by day, Rapper by night

In this segment of So Inspiring, we are joined by scientist-slash-rapper @Ruby Ibarra. She was recently featured for the OST of award-winning docu-film “A Thousand Cuts”. She’s also one of the scientists who helped develop a vaccine for COVID-19.

When asked how she was chosen to be featured in the OST for “A Thousand Cuts,” Ruby recalls how she met both Maria Ressa and Ramona S. Diaz (director) on Rappler headquarters. She was then reached out to by Ramona to produce a song for her film.

The #pinaywarrior also talked about her inspiration and motivation to use her talents in talking about social issues, how she balances her work as a scientist and her artistry in the rap industry, how @Kollective Hustle and @MYX Philippines give her and other fil-am artists a platform for their art, and more.
