It must be your dream to be a model.
I wasn’t into modeling before. Good thing fashion director Joey Espino encouraged me to try it. He became my mentor. Training’s tough pero kaya.
Was it like a modeling boot camp?
It’s like America’s Next Top Model. Pero iba ang approach. Models should be conscious of her movements from the tip of her hair to the tip of her toe.
Tell us your Milan story.
They find our features very exotic. Reaction nga sa akin at first, “Wow! Cinese.” Chinese daw ako. Hahaha.
What else would you rather do other than walking the catwalk?
Nagkaroon din ako ng band. The first one is called Fame. Puro models kami doon. Kasama ko si Francine Prieto sa vocals. The next one was G-Steps. Ang music namin more on pop and R&B.
