Kapamilya actress Yassi Pressman is one of showbiz' most beautiful faces; and given her mestiza look and elegant aura, Yassi would pass as a girl from the high society. But Yassi, popularly known as Alyana in the Primetime series FPJ"s Ang Probinsyano, clarifies this misconception and says she is not born on a silver platter.
Yassi admits, though, that her Daddy Ronnie used to have a wealthy lifestyle before due to his large businesses, including gem and furniture lines. But unexpected turn of events suddenly took place and her father's businesses did not work out well in the end; diminishing his riches and leading to a more challenging way of living.
In 1993, her Dad met her Mom, who is working as a domestic helper in Hongkong then. They both fell for each other and Yassi was born out of their love story in 1995. Her sister, Issa Pressman was born in 1997 and they all went home to the Philippines for good.
Recently, Issa has announced that she has a girlfriend. Yassi is proud of her little sister and says she does not look at Issa as a bisexual woman, or any other term that people tag the members of the LGBT community. Rather, she sees Issa as just a simple human who fell in love with another person.
Yassi has already ventured into writing as well and published her very own book, "Say Yass to Happiness" According to Yassi, a multi-hyphenate artist, the book is a bridge that helps her connect to her fans. As its title suggests, "Say Yass to Happiness" aims to inspire and spark the reader's sense of happiness; and is composed of interactive pages that can be filled-up by the readers themselves.
