In the form of this blog entry, I’d like to express my sincerest gratitude to Mega Magazine for allowing me to grace the cover of this year’s Most Beautiful issue. It was truly an honor, specially being amongst nine other exceedingly beautiful (and talented) women. This year’s theme is “odd pretty” and they chose their girls based on who (in the industry) they believe embody being unconventionally beautiful. And I must say, it was the theme in particular that made me even more glad that they had chosen me to lead this year’s bunch. This just goes to show that slowly but surely, people are starting to acknowledge me as the person I want them to. Being recognized as an artist who is about something so much more than the way I look and making people smile by smiling, is the best compliment I can ever receive from anyone.
The issue is all about embracing your flaws. It’s about learning to stop trying to be just like everyone else and loving yourself for who you truly are. I believe that the secret to being beautiful comes with confidence, acceptance, and contentment within one’s self. It’s about realizing that each and everyone of us is unique, and that’s what makes all of us beautiful.
