How LEGO® building has helped Inez make friends from all over the world
Inez Vasquez is a working mom from the Philippines. She’s a real-estate lawyer for one of the country’s big property developers.
With two children, aged five and seven, life is always on the go for Inez – but one thing she always tries to make time for is LEGO® building.
She sees it as her own personal creative outlet to balance out the stressful nature of her job. For her, it brings a sense of calm to everyday life.
“Interestingly, I know quite a lot of lawyers who are into LEGO bricks.”
Inez didn’t own any LEGO sets as a child because they were expensive in the Philippines. It was her love for books that led her to purchase her first set when she was thirty years old: it was a LEGO The Hobbit Gandalf set.
Once she got a taste for LEGO building, she went on to buy more sets like LEGO Harry Potter™ and LEGO The Lord of the Rings™. Now, she’s lost track of how many sets she owns, and the best part is she’s even discovered some newfound friends.
