Former "Pinoy Big Brother" teen housemate Aljon Mendoza admitted on his interview in "Magandang Buhay" earlier today, February 20, that he was shy and timid even before he entered the famous house.
But contrary to his shy personality, Aljon has joined numerous school pageants as his way to overcome his fear of being in front of many people.
"Sinasabihan po ako ng mga teacher ko na sumali and gusto ko ring i-try para may [bago] akong experience na maranasan," he related.
Following his teachers' advice, Aljon discovered that it was a great joy to go out of his comfort zone.
As he reminisced his pageant days, Aljon remembered how his late grandfather supported him in every single one.
"Lagi po siyang nanunood kapag may pageant ako sa school," he recalled. "Sobrang saya po niya, talagang pinagchi-cheer po niya ako."
He furthered, "Nung nawala na po siya sobrang bigat sa pakiramdam kasi sobrang close po kami ng lolo ko."
ICYDK, Aljon is set to star in a TV series with his co-housemates Ali Abinal and Reign Parani soon this year (https://starcinema.abs-cbn.com/2019/1/31/news/pbb-otso-teen-housemates-aljon-ali-at-reign-s-47148).
