Perhaps the biggest transformation in the history of The BACKPACKERS is with one of its smartest member. The metamorphosis started to unfold as we spend more time together, and we realize that it feels good when this person opens up to you. She is typically quiet and restrained..but wait until you see her exhibit her prowess in Balagtasan and realize that she can be very makulit and madaldal too. She truly resembles the traits of a BACKPACKER – a nature lover and a person who is not afraid to face the challenges of the outdoors. A naturally sweet girl who prefers to call The BACKPACKERS a FAMILY aside from being a mountaineering group.

Liz served as The BACKPACKERS Secretary from 2010 - 2014.
She was recognized as The BACKPACKER of the Year 2012.
