"I grew up watching a lot of Princess movies and it wasn’t until Moana that I felt empowered. She was all about going out of her comfort zone and chasing her dreams. She was scared at the beginning but did not give up. She showed me leadership and confidence. She isn’t the definition of 'media beauty', which is normally skinny and fair-skinned. Her movie was the closest to Philippine culture and it made quite an impact on me. I realized my own beauty when I went out of my own comfort zone whereas I used to be an extra in presentations and out of the spotlight. I am now happy performing through dance, theater, and cosplay. It doesn't cross my mind anymore that I am chubby or tanned; I am beautiful. It feels different and I'm happy to give joy to other kids. Beauty doesn’t just rely on the appearance but is also evident when someone is passionate."
