Entering the entertainment world is indeed a tough game. For some, it is like plunging into a deep blue ocean, one must learn how to swim and keep up along the waves and the gravity. Meanwhile for others, chasing one's dream is spending time on their favorite amusement park, it's full of fun and free from hesitations.
Last Saturday, May 26, at the EDSA Shangri-La Plaza Atrium, MYX, the leading music channel in the country, has welcomed the newest members of their #MYXsquad.
Samm Alvero, 21, and Kaye Reyes, 19, two fresh faces, fueled by their determination to live their teenage dreams, have officially joined VJ Robi Domingo, VJ Donny Pangilinan, VJ Ai dela Cruz, VJ Sharlene San Pedro, VJ Sunny Kim, VJ Turs Daza, and VJ Inigo Pascual for a six-month contract with the channel.
Samm shared, "This is my first time to audition for anything in my life. Anything this big. So, when I got in I was like 'Whoa, I can't believe it. It's so cool.' I got to grow through the different challenges and improved my craft."
It was the same day when Samm has to attend her college graduation at Ateneo de Manila University but instead she chose the search and luckily she won.
Kaye, meanwhile, shared that she promised herself two years ago to be a MYX VJ at the age of 18.
"Sa audition pa lang sabi ko, 'No, I'm not gonna get in. Everyone's so good. I'm not good enough.' So nagulat ako when I got a message from MYX na nakapasok ako sa finalist. Okay na okay na sa akin 'yon kasi this experience is really heart-warming and maraming nag-audition, eh, pero may nakita sila sayo and I'm really grateful for that."
Both girls expressed their gratitude towards their senior VJs for never letting them feel inferior.
"They're very helpful. They always make you feel like you've known each other forever na," Samm said which Kaye agreed upon.
Samm and Kaye shone above 10 other VJ hopefuls during the competition in which they proved their hosting skills and showcased the right attitude in promoting good vibes to the MYX viewers.
Meanwhile, Samm is former MYX VJ Iya Villania' (2004-2013) fan girl, whom genuineness she admires and has Beyonce on the top of her wish list of the celebrities she dreams to interview, while Kaye has VJ Ai as her LODI due to her kind and friendly demeanor and wishes to interview Alicia Keys in her lifetime.
