Iza Calzado, Maris Racal, and Lou Yanong talked all about resilience and hope on the latest episode of the digital talk show “I Feel U" yesterday, October 11.
Iza, who starred in Star Cinema’s “Starting Over Again”, contracted COVID-19 last March. The show’s host Toni Gonzaga asked her how she was able to go through the ordeal.
She said, “It really of course starts with God’s grace. God’s mercy and grace talaga. Pinatibay din Niya ako, naniwala ako na okay, I will pull through, God is with me. Nakatulong ng malaki talaga ang prayers.”
And for those who are going through hardships right now, Iza said, “Definitely, naniniwala ako na kaya ninyo. Kung ikaw ay may pinagdadaanan ngayon, ano man ‘yun, kaya mo ‘yan di ba?”
Lou, who placed third on the reality show “Pinoy Big Brother: Otso” is still adjusting to being in the public eye. She admitted, “Until now po, tina-try ko pa din mag-adjust kasi honestly, for me, sobrang opinionated ko na tao.”
But Lou remains strong because she’s aware that a lot of young supporters are looking up at her, and she wants to be a responsible role model. “Biglang may mga weak times talaga at hindi mawawala ‘yun, and at the same time, ‘yun din ang nagpapalakas sa akin.”
Maris is another “Pinoy Big Brother” alum that entered showbiz after a stint in the reality show. Just recently, she vlogged about her new house, which she bought and designed on her own.
When asked why she did not give up on her career after “PBB”, Maris said, “Para sa akin kasi, ang dami ko pang dreams na hindi ko pa na-achieve. I'm thankful, but part of me [feels] I'm quite not satisfied pa, gusto ko pa lumaki ‘yung mga nakakarinig sa songs ko. I also want to tap the music scene kasi ibang challenge din 'yun, and passion ko talaga siya eh, it keeps me going.”
