Lyca Gairanod entered showbiz at a young age, when she emerged as the champion in "The Voice Kids" Season 1.
Six years later, Lyca is now enjoying the fruits of her labor. She got to invest in a new house and is currently growing her Youtube channel.
Along with fame came the bashers, and she's had to face below-the-belt accusations about her looks
Speaking to Toni Gonzaga in "I Feel U" on November 1, Lyca shared, "Siguro 'yung pagpap-aretoke po. Nagulat lang po ako na sinasabi nila na nagpa-retoke raw po ako. Pero hindi po ako nagpa-retoke."
"Hinahayaan ko na lang din po ['yung mga bashers]. Parang okay lang naman po sa akin kasi sila din po 'yung nagpalakas ng [loob ko] para mas galingan ko pa," she said.
Now, Lyca has learned how to show her true self to the public.
"Natuto po ako na magpasaya ng tao. Dati po kasi akong tahimik kasi nga po mahiyain ako dati. Sa ngayon po, nagkaroon ako ng lakas ng loob na ibahagi po sa inyo kung sino po ako. 'Yung totoo lang po na ako," she enthused.
