Liza Soberano is taking her Youtube channel to the next level.
The actress spoke about her growing Youtube following and how she ventured into vlogging with the help of her manager Ogie Diaz in a digital press conference last August 7. The Kapamilya actress admitted that she initially had no plans to pursue vlogging, and believed that she could express herself much better through writing.
"During the course of quarantine, I never thought that I would actually come up with my own vlogs because I don't think I'm a good talker. I'm better at writing," she said. "But then, I realized that writing sometimes doesn't convey the real emotions that we have. So I decided to try out YouTube with the push, of course, of Tito Ogie, my manager."
Liza said she finds vlogging enjoyable because she gets to share her personal life with her fans.
"I'm still trying to get better at it but I'm starting to kind of enjoy it," she said. "It's a way of sharing my life to my fans, which I haven't been able to do so in my previous years because I was always more of the private type."
"I didn't like sharing what was going on in my life, but I decided maybe it's about time," she continued.
The "Make It With You" actress admitted that prior to the quarantine, she was always uncomfortable watching her own footage. Overcoming that, she said, helped her decide it was time to venture into Youtube.
"I'm at a place where I'm more comfortable with myself and seeing myself more often, because before I hated seeing myself on billboards or TV. I wouldn't watch it," she revealed. "When I watch myself, I notice these little flaws about myself and I hate it, but I learned a lot about myself over the course of quarantine, and I guess that's also what pushed me to start vlogging."
Liza launched her "Life with Liza" channel last July, six months after her reel-and-real life partner Enrique Gil also ventured into vlogging.
