Toni Gonzaga was joined by celebrities with courageous hearts on the latest episode of "I Feel U" last Sunday, November 1!
Janine Berdin, Lyca Gairanod, and best friends Fumiya Sankai and Yamyam Gucom all opened up about how they've faced life's biggest challenges with courage.
"Tawag ng Tanghalan" champ Janine recently had a transformation that got a lot of attention online. Despite the many opinions about her, Janine remained happy.
In the interview, she said, "Ginawa ko po 'yun para sa self ko. Sabi ko, kahit anong sabihin ng iba, basta masaya po ako para sa sarili ko. And then ayun po sobrang nakaka-overwhelm 'yung reaction, I'm so thankful."
Even at a young age, Lyca has been displaying courage. She was only 9-years-old when she joined "The Voice Kids Philippines" in 2014 to help her family. She was eventually declared as the champion.
Now that she's a teenager, Lyca faced a plastic surgery issue that tested her values.
She addressed it, saying, "Nagulat lang po ako na sinasabi nila na nagpa-retoke po ako. Hindi po ako nagpa-retoke."
But Lyca used those judgments as motivation, saying, "Okay lang naman po sa akin kasi sila din po 'yung nagpalakas ng [loob ko] para mas galingan ko pa."
Meanwhile, "Pinoy Big Brother: Otso" besties Yamyam and Fumiya displayed courage through their friendship.
The two are known for their funny moments on the reality show. Yamyam is a full-blooded Pinoy from Bohol, and Fumiya is Japanese. But despite the language barrier, they understand each other not just through words but also in their hearts.
Fumiya said he is thankful for their wonderful friendship. He shared, "When I talk to him, [I learn from his stories] talaga. How he thinks, his experiences, it's all new [to me] and it's so inspiring that's why I'm very thankful."
Yamyam feels the same about his friend. He said, "Grabe po. Napaka-thankful ko po na dumating po siya sa buhay ko kasi it's very rare po talaga na, magkabilang-mundo yung pinagmulan namin, grabe 'yung solid na friendship na nabuo sa loob ng bahay."
