Francine Diaz opens up about rough life before showbiz

Teen star Francine Diaz has opened up about growing up in a poor family, which pushed her to work hard and pursue showbiz.

"Nalubog kami noon sa utang. Palagi kami napuputulan ng kuryente, ng tubig. Tapos nakailang lipat din po kami ng bahay kasi napapalayas kami. Pero hindi naman po ‘yung pinalalayas na pinalalabas kami bigla ng bahay. Kumbaga, pinapaalis kami kasi hindi na talaga kayang bayaran ‘yung renta," Francine said on Star Magic's video last Sunday August 23.

She added, "Noong first year [high school] ako, wala akong libro. Wala kaming pambili ng libro noon. Kaya ‘yun po siguro ‘yung mga challenges na hinarap namin dati sa buhay."

The hardships she experienced as a young kid taught her to become more mature and to value hard work.

She said, "Noong mga time na ‘yun nasa isip ko kailangan ko ng trabaho, kailangan kong matulungan sina mama. Dati ko pa po talaga gusto mag-artista."

Francine's popularity rose during the run of the ABS-CBN afternoon serye "Kadenang Ginto." She, along with co-stars Andrea Brillantes, Seth Fedelin, and Kyle Echarri became known as The Gold Squad.

Asked what message would she like to say to her seven-year-old self, Francine said, "Dear seven-year-old Francine, i-enjoy mo lang ang pagkabata mo. I am very proud of you dahil alam kong ganyan palang ang age mo, alam kong nagta-try ka talaga na maging better sa mga bagay na hindi ka magaling."
