What made you decide to sign up with VIVA?
For as long as I can remember, gusto ko nang maging artista but I couldn't take the leap and do it full time kasi I also wanted to work on my other talent, which was dancing. Luckily, nabigyan ako ng opportunity ng VIVA to do both and I'm really thankful for that.
So how long have you been dancing?
Member ako before ng De La Salle College of Saint Benilde Pep Squad and then every time na may talent portion sa pageant, dancing yung talent ko. Nakuha ko rin yung talent ng dancing sa mom ko kasi sumasayaw din siya. Siguro nasa genes talaga namin.
Why Tahitian dance, though?
Nagyo-YouTube lang ako nun tapos I came across a Tahitian dance video. I immediately fell in love with their outfits and nakita ko ring malaki yung hips nila like me so like... why not try it?
How about pageantry? What got you into that?
We were just hanging around at a mall and a talent scout approached me. It was for a big pageant in our province, Laguna. Then the talent scout got my mom's number and a day later, we got all the details. I guess that was what started my career in show business and pageantry.
Did you win the pageant?
Yeah, I did! I'm a former Bb. Pagsanghan! It's actually really funny kasi hindi ko ine-expect na ma-scout, let alone win the competition. Isipin mo kumakain lang kami ni mommy ng Bibingkinitan at nagkakape nun.
So, we guess that explains why you like dancing and participating in pageants. But what about acting, what made you decide you wanted to really pursue it now?
I really love playing different characters kasi. Parang I'm really interested to know what it's like to live out other people's lives. Sobrang interesting for me yung mga shows na may characters na multiple personalities. I want to experience playing challenging roles like that.
