From being the barrio lass who initially endeared us with her bubbly and admirable personality and innate sense of humor during her triumphant stint in Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7, in which she was also hailed as the Big Winner, Maymay Entrata went on to become one of the role models of the new generation when it comes to confidence and women empowerment.
In the recent years, we have witnessed her evolution from a simple youngster to becoming an “Amakabogera,” who doesn’t need to keep up with all the trends and adhere to the beauty standards that we grew up to since she is unapologetically confident of herself.
Now that she’s in her mid-20s, we’ve noticed how the “Ang Wacky-Go-Lucky ng Cagayan de Oro” is gradually shedding off her teeny bopper image as she becomes more sophisticated and edgier with regards to how she presents herself. From wearing preppy, demure, and simple outfits in her television, movie, and public appearances, the 25-year-old stunner has grown more experimental and flamboyant with her outfits as she tends to put on pieces that are flashy and bare more skin.
We could notice it in the pieces that she donned in the music videos of her songs “AMAKABOGERA” and “‘Di Kawalan”, as well as in her performances in ASAP Natin ‘To as this generation’s “Dancefloor Sweetheart.” And, of course, who would forget her trending and scorching look and production number during the recent Binibining Pilipinas 2022 coronation night?
With the confidence and overall beauty that Maymay possesses, it’s definitely not surprising that she’s chosen to be the newest cover girl of Star Magic’s digital video magazine “Slay.” She divulged what for her is the real definition of “AMAKABOGERA”.

She stated, "Ang pagiging ‘amakabogera’ ay hindi lang 'yung sa nakikita natin physically. Nagba-base ito sa katauhan natin. Natural naman lumalabas ang pagiging confident mo kapag fully accepted mo kung sino ka. Kasi the more mo ina-accept 'yong sarili mong ganda ay nawawala na rin 'yong insecurities mo.”
However, before she was able to embrace being an “amakabogera,” Maymay disclosed that she actually used to have a lot of insecurities and conform to the beauty standards set by the society. She used to listen to what the bashers were telling him, so she forced herself to be different until it wore her down and made her unhappy. In the end, she realized that what we should be seeking is God’s approval rather than of others.
Maymay further shared that she feels the sexiest whenever she’s happy and smiling, saying, “Ang sexy para sa akin ay kapag masiyahin at humble ka. Hindi mo naman kailangan i-brag ang meron ka. Lalabas ‘yon ng kusa based sa pagkatao mo. Kapag masaya ako, feeling ko sexy ako. Kapag palagi akong nakangiti, tingin ko ang ganda ko.”
