We know you’re pretty well known on social media. How are your numbers so far?
Okay naman. But I only started my IG account last year so I have to work on increasing the 50k followers I have so far.
So does the Chao surname mean you have predominantly Chinese blood?
My dad is 1/2 Chinese. My lolo on his side is pure Chinese and my Lola is Filipina. My mom naman is half-arabian. So yun ang mix ko—Filipino, Chinese, and Arabian.
Nice! So tell us how started in the modeling scene.
I started modeling when I was 16. I’m 23 now. I got invited to do car shows through Facebook, kasi I was posting photo shoots of my collabs with photographers, and also I had done some ramp modeling. Nag-aaral pa ako non but I decided to stop kasi kumikita na ako so nag-focus muna ako sa work. I was in college then, taking up Mass Communication.
How does it feel to be famous? In some ways you’re probably even more famous on social media than some artista.
Masarap kasi bata pa ako gusto ko na maging artista kaso di ako naging artista ha ha ha! Naging model ako but ang talent ko talaga is dancing.
Is the dream of becoming an artista still there?
