She’s the newest addition to the Kapamilya network’s list of beautiful leading ladies. Not only that, she’s headlining the latest adaptation of the favorite romantic series Precious Hearts Romances Araw Gabi. It’s a promising launch to the long career path ahead of her. But before all of this, she was just a “Doll Along Da Riles Ng Albay.”
There was a time when she was just another fangirl, herself. Whenever Barbie spotted a star, she grabbed that photo opportunity. She now has a remembrance from the moments she met Liza Soberano, Sarah Lahbati and her idol Nadine Lustre among others. She even attended a JaDine mall show once. Who can’t relate to her?
“Mahirap pero masaya,” this is how she described her old life on Tonight with Boy Abunda. Barbie revealed that the houses were so close next to each other, you could smell your neighbors’ food. Their family’s most prized possession at that time was a motorcycle that her mother rode to sell products from Divisoria. This humble beginning has motivated her to work hard every day.
