Who wouldn’t want to be Liza Soberano?
She is easily one of the most beautiful ladies of the country. Her face alone makes her stand out from the crowd. Throw in a great fashion sense, some talent and a genuine attitude too. What more could you need, right?
As much as we all envy her, however, there was a time when she was just like the rest of us. A teenager who was just trying to survive school and follow the trends. In fact, it might be hard to believe, but once upon a time Liza went through the phase of being a “jejemon.” If you are cringing at the thought, do not worry because you are not alone.
In her Magandang Buhay guesting in 2019, wherein her high school besties Roselyn Locquiao and Arischelle Garcia also appeared, Liza freaked out when her old photos were brought up. She could not even look at herself, particularly when a picture of the three of them in wacky poses was flashed, which they attempted to recreate as requested by the momshie-hosts. Apparently, she was one of those who jumped into the popular side bangs bandwagon then as seen in most of her throwback photos.
A class photo from her welding class was also shown, where she personally made a grill. Fun fact: one way their teacher would test how well they welded is by throwing it to see if it would break. “Pero ‘yong sa’kin ‘di nasira kaya mataas score ko d’yan,” she boasted.
She was also hailed Miss Intramurals, which definitely comes as no surprise. According to the Forevermore actress, she was only forced by their class adviser to join, yet it was her who won in the end. While her competitors had hair and make-up teams to help them, she reached the top with her effortless, natural beauty.
Despite already breaking into the local entertainment scene, the three besties revealed that Liza was still able to visit them in Pangasinan when she was still starting her acting career. There was one summer that they went for a swim. “’Yon lang po ulit ‘yong time na uuwi po siya. Tapos sinundo niya pa rin po kami, ‘di niya kami nakalimutan,” Liza’s friend Arischelle revealed.
