In her 20 years in showbiz, K Brosas had both victories and defeat. Her journey wasn’t smooth-sailing and their came moments when it felt stagnant. Yet, passionate about her craft, K never thought of quitting. And with every effort to keep pressing forward came an opportunity to evolve as an artist.
K started acting in theaters as a teenager. She got pregnant at 22, and then worked as an OFW while her daughter Crystal was only three years old. When she came back to the Philippines, she began to pursue a showbiz career. K was known as a well-rounded artist since then.
The perseverance was rooted from the desire to give her child a good life. As a single mother for 23 years, K makes sure that her decisions are anchored on her daughter’s welfare, although showbiz commitments often force her to sacrifice quality time with Crystal. Seeing the latter grow up into a respectful and strong individual, K feels like every sacrifice was worth it. She also considers Crystal’s
college graduation as one of the biggest rewards of parenthood.
In an Instagram post, K expressed full support to Crystal who came out as a lesbian. She thought there’s no need to go public but it was Crystal who wanted to be more open about her sexual preference. “Ipaglalaban ko kung ano ‘yung karapatan niya,” said K.
K won’t deny that she’s ready to enter a new relationship and she has Crystal’s support on this. “Lagi naman tayong handa, ang problema waley. Kasi kung may darating, bakit ko naman ide-deprive ang sarili kong kaligayahan?” The singer-comedienne revealed that she has high expectations which often halt potential relationships. “Ang hirap makahanap ng mas strong kaysa sa akin kasi nai-intimidate most of the time,” she admits.
Answering questions from Crystal, K mentioned that she would like to be remembered for making other people laugh. She’s ready to see Crystal walk down the aisle five years from now, albeit she underscored that keeping a specific deadline for major life accomplishments is an attitude that millennials must break.
As advice to single moms like her, K underscored the importance of keeping an open communication, adding that a strict parenting style might only push the child to keep secrets and become rebellious.
