Ivana Alawi still finds it hard to believe how she went from a simple vlogger into a YouTube sensation. In this The Best Talk clip, she shared with Boy Abunda her initial reaction when she first saw one of her videos reach one million views.
Ivana confesses how she could not believe it at first, “I’m just a normal girl who’s pasaway.” For her, there are a lot of more talented people in singing, dancing, or hosting so it was quite a surprise.
In fact, her first video that made the one million cut was just a chill bulalo eating video with her sister, Mona. At that time, she just went with Mona’s gimmick to eat bulalo on cam. Little did Ivana know that it would one day be her big break in the vlogging sphere.
The experience was definitely overwhelming; she would even be recognized by netizens outside the country, citing her popular bulalo video. Now as a rising star and actress, Ivana can’t help but recall the memory fondly and laugh at the amusement of it all.
