With 13.2 million subscribers and increasing Kapamilya projects, it’s undeniable that almost anyone would recognize the beautiful YouTube star and actress Ivana Alawi no matter where she went. Despite this, Ivana hasn’t gotten used to the fame and makes it a point to live the same as before she became an Internet sensation.
“Hindi ko siya nilalagay sa utak ko kasi ‘yon tinuturo sa akin ng mama ko,” she shares to The Best Talk host Boy Abunda in an interview.
So when she goes out to the mall or public places, she goes as she normally would. However, she attracts crowds, sometimes causing a commotion. At one point, the mall officers had to get involved to calm down the situation between her and her fans.
Ivana confessed how things like that get her in trouble with her manager because she refuses to have a bodyguard with her when she goes to public places. “As much as possible, I just like to be myself,” she adds.
Ivana’s popularity is still sure to rise soon as the Sino ang Maysala?: Mea Culpa star has a new movie project in the works!
