PERSONA’s digital interview with rising young star Maymay Entrata gets too personal.

“Paano nga ba nabago ang buhay ng isang Maymay Entrata mula sa pagiging simpleng tao hanggang sa pagiging artista?”

Maymay stressed never in her wildest dream all the things happening to her now could happen.

“Hindi ko inisip na mangyayari ito, inisip ko na papasok ako sa PBB at lalaban. Kung mananalo, mananalo, kung hindi, hindi. Basta lalaban ako. Gusto kong maging big winner, gusto kong makatulong sa pamilya ko, after nun uuwi ako, mag-aaral ako ulit,” she seriously answered.

When asked what will be her advice to future PBB big winner, she replied: “Ang masasabi ko sa future big winner, okay lang mabigla kasi ‘di ba mabibigla ka na ang daming sumusuporta sa iyo, pero huwag na huwag mong ilalagay sa ulo mo para naman nasa tamang daan ka pa rin.”

“Kapag nalilito ka, hindi mo alam kung paano mo embrace ‘yung mga taong sumusuporta sa iyo, siguro pray mo muna kung anong galawan niya. Laging mag- appreciate, dahil maraming insecurities, comparison. Basta focus lang sa kung ano man blessings na mayroon siya at huwag makalimot kung saan siya nanggaling,” Maymay added.

In the interview, Maymay also revealed how the advise of actor Arjo Atayde, son of veteran actress Sylvia Sanchez, helped her get through a personal crisis at that time.

“Tao lang ang artista nagkakamali din, mag-ingat palagi at palawakin ang obserbasyon sa mundo ng showbiz. Maging sensitive sa mga nararamdaman ng tao at huwag magtitiwala agad kasi masasaktan ka lang,” Maymay quoted Arjo, her eyes beaming with pride because the actor considers her his “sister.”

Maymay’s answer to the question on what will be her advice to her future self made some of her fans and supporters cry.

“Sa future self ko, sana after ng mga pangarap mo sa pamilya mo bigyan mo rin ng time ‘yung sarili mo. ‘Yung pangarap mo sa sarili mo sana matupad… dapat mong tuparin talaga dahil deserve mo ring maging masaya… At maging free,” she answered seriously.

PERSONA also surprised Maymay with a visit from her friend and former PBB housemate Yong Mujahil.

Yong said he still considers Maymay his friend and “ate.”

In the interview, Maymay bared not only her personal and family’s struggles but her heart.  

Maymay believes anything is possible to a brave and willing heart because she’s \an amazing creation that shines bright like a diamond.
