This is your first bikini shoot!
I was nervous because it’s my first time to pose in a swimsuit. Pero excited ako kasi pag nakakikita ako ng FHM iniisip kong gusto ko rin lumabas dito. Besides, nagtu-two-piece naman ako sa beach. It was my mom who had qualms about it. Even when my manager Manny Valera said I should go for it, I waited for my mom’s go signal.
When FHM came out eight years ago, you were only 10! And you were already in showbiz then, right?
Yes, I was already part of Ang TV. I was discovered because Nadia Montenegro is my half-sister. She encouraged me to try out for the show. Medyo nahirapan nga lang ako kasi hindi pa ako marunong mag-Tagalog. I was born in Spain and I had just moved to the Philippines, so I only knew little Filipino and English. So, during the show, nasa background lang ako, hindi masyadong nagsasalita, ha ha!
