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. Yet, after approximately eight years, her mother returned to Hongkong to continue in her work as a domestic helper.
Despite looking too close to perfection, Yassi reveals that she has her fair share of insecurities as well; especially when it comes to her skin and thighs. Yassi feels like being on the plumper side of the society's beauty meter. But now that she has learned to take care of her skin and feel good deep inside, Yassi is slowly letting go of these negative thoughts about herself.
