As a kid, it was never my dream to be an artista. It was my sister Camille who did a lot of commercials, and when I saw her on TV, I also wanted to see my face on TV! Sumasama lang ako sa kanya kaya nakukuha din ako sa bawat project. In 1992, auditions were held for a show called Ang TV, directed by Johnny Manahan. Camille was the only one who was supposed to audition but in the end, we both got in.
Being on Ang TV was fun! I was only eight years old at the time. My first friends in showbiz were Chesca and Patrick Garcia, and Vandolph. We used to pretend we were part of a gang and that we had enemies. We even had a hideout behind the set! I really enjoyed being with the people I worked with. They were like family to me.
