I had the pleasure of shooting with one of San Francisco’s top photographers [Vincent Gotti] for an upcoming magazine cover in Showbiz Hollywood.
According to her, even she had a hard time grasping this opportunity as a reality. Thus, she encouraged others to continue pursuing their dreams. “Nothing is impossible,” she said.
In Filipino, she wrote,
I can’t explain to my husband that I’ll be in a Hollywood magazine ‘cause I can’t believe that I’ll be with the best of the best.
Vincent Gotti, a San Francisco and Los Angeles-based fashion and editorial photographer also shared the photo on his Instagram account. It read,
A little teaser of what’s coming up for her first magazine cover in the US. The gorgeous and very funny comedienne [and] actress from Manila.
The magazine will be released on May 11.
I am a person who dropped a plan for years to pursue my passion for the arts and writing. I love the cosmos and I'm here to wander around it.
