Maris Racal gave an empowering message to all the girls who doubt themselves because of boys' beauty standards.
A video of the young singer-actress went viral on Twitter last Tuesday, January 29. She was hosting a live Q&A on her Instagram when she encountered a question that concerns boys who find morena girls less appealing.
The question went, "Totoo po ba na mas attractive ang mga tisay kesa sa morena? 'Yun kasi ang pansinin ng boys, eh."
Maris answered the question like a champ! No girl should comply to any boy's beauty type.
"Hindi 'yan nagma-matter. Love yourself. 'Wag mo isipin kung ano 'yung type ng boys, 'wag mo isipin 'yung standards nila. Mahalin mo 'yung sarili mo at may magmamahal sa'yo for who you are. Don't listen to boys!"
Ugh, we stan girl empowering girls!
Maris previously starred in "Vince and Kath and James" and "Bloody Crayons." She'll star in "I'm Ellenya L" alongside Inigo Pascual, as well as the Mikhail Red-helmed zombie flick "Block Z."
