Raven was born in the Philippines. She was just a year old when her parents moved to New Zealand. According to her mom Cherrie, Raven has found interest in acting and singing when she’s four at a Chinese Lantern Festival where she went to the stage and sang a song from ‘Moana’.

The #SingerStudioAllies is a roster of major competition winners themselves, record label artists, and celebrities that have walked and lived the stage. Coach Jojo Acosta is Raven’s main mentor. Coach Jojo is a Manila-based international voice coach, founder of the Singer Studio — the Philippines’ first studio of customized-voice lessons.
Raven is a diligent student, also active at the Auckland Performing Arts Academy. She gets many invites to perform at various events in New Zealand.
