Kristel Fulgar, Elha Nympha, and Xyriel Manabat opened up about what it means to be a Dalagang Pilipina in the latest episode of "I Feel U" last Sunday, October 4.
Kristel Fulgar who began in the biz as a child star, is now spreading inspiration through music and vlogging. She's also noted for her love for Korean culture, which led her to learn the Korean language.
Speaking with host Toni Gonzaga, Kristel shared, "Madali lang po siya talaga. Kapag po na-try niyo siya, sasabihin niyo, 'Ay ganun lang pala?' Sabi nga pinakamadali daw na language na pag-aralan isulat saka basahin, sa buong mundo is Korean."
Elha Nympha joined and won "The Voice Kids Philippines" in 2015. Now, that she's a teenager, there came a point that she wanted "change" to happen.
Opening up about her weight loss journey, she said, "May point po na, gusto ko lang ng change para po sa sarili ko. Paunti-unti po, 'di ko po namalayan na naglu-lose na po pala talaga ako ng weight. Hanggang ngayon nagda-diet pa rin po."
Xyriel Manabat was a child star we all loved due to her television roles. She's a teenager now, and people still remember her for the characters she played in shows such as "Momay" and "100 Days to Heaven."
She shared, "Nakakatuwa po kasi naalala pa po nila 'yung mga roles na ginampanan ko po dati."
Toni also asked the girls how they would describe a Dalagang Pilipina.
For Kristel, being a dalagang Pilipina means, "May prinsipyo."
Elha said a Filipina is "strong and brave." She added, "Sobrang laki po ng self-confidence niya at hindi po siya natatakot."
Xyriel shares the same sentiment. She said, "Brave. Kasi kaya po nilang i-counter 'yung ganitong klase ng mundo, na mas madami na po 'yung challenges, mas madami na po 'yung mga mata na akala nila may karapatan sila manghusga. So, sobra pong ang tatapang po nila para magpatuloy at ipaglaban ang alam nilang tama."
