“The Four Bad Boys and Me” actress Maymay Entrata has opened up about living away from her family for several years now.
In her interview with “Magandang Buhay” hosts Karla Estrada, Jolina Magdangal, and Melai Cantiveros, Maymay shared that while she is away from her family, she is not alone, as she is living with her friends here in Metro Manila.
"Hindi ako mag-isa. Gusto ko lang i-clear po 'yun," she said. “Kasi 'yung family ko nasa province, sa Camiguin. Ang nanay ko naman saka mga kapatid ko nasa Japan.”
She continued, “Ang kasama ko dito po ay yung mga matalik kong kaibigan. So tatlo kami.”
Maymay, who is the Big Winner of “Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky Season 7”, said that she learned how to be independent when she was 16-years-old. Then after her stint on “PBB”, she stayed in Manila and lived with her two best friends.
Maymay still visits her family and relatives whenever she has the time, and especially during special occasions such as holidays, Christmas, and birthdays.
She related, "Parang nasanay na din ako na malayo sa kanila. Pero ginagawa ko 'yung best ko para kahit papaano, eh mag-visit ako sa kanila, na makita ko sila sa personal.”
Since the COVID-19 pandemic hit the country this year, Maymay hasn't been able to see her family. She said, "Mahirap sa akin yun."
Despite the challenges, The 23-year-old actress said that her faith grew stronger during this time.
"Kasi ‘di ba nagiging masaya ‘yung Panginoon kapag nag-remain faithful ka [sa Kanya] dun sa trials na binibigay niya sayo,” she said.
Maymay plays the Master Lovecaster DJ Zari in Star Cinema’s first "Listen to Love" visual podcast, “Four Bad Boys and Me."
