Kiray Celis, who was glammed up by makeup artist Fanny Serrano for a photo shoot, said that though she isn’t into makeup, she is thankful to Fanny for bringing out her best. She also shared her thoughts on undergoing plastic surgery. “Sabi nga niya (Fanny), gusto niya magparetoke ako. Parang i-enhance lang naman. Sabi ko, ayoko. Masaya ako sa sarili ko na kaya mo naman akong pagandahin sa make-up ko so hindi ko na kailangan. Actually hindi ako mayabang pero masarap ipagmalaki kung ano yun talagang tunay mong itsura.”
Kiray, who was discovered in a contest on the defunct noontime show Magandang Tanghali Bayan, said that she really wanted to help her family’s finances even at a young age so she joined the contest. “Bata palang ako, gusto ko ng i-ahon sa hirap yung magulang ko. Yun talaga yung goal ko. Hindi ko pangarap maging artista, actually wala akong pangarap. Gusto ko lang talaga maginhawa bago man lang mamatay,” she said.
The teen actress who said that she has close family ties, shared that she was able to buy her own car. She also said that she is the one sending her siblings to school. She also has a sibling who already has a family, which she also supports. “Sobrang importante sa’kin yung pamilya ko…” Kiray said, adding that it is important for her to provide their needs as well as to make sure that they eat thrice a day.
After high school, she plans to get a course related to her job such as Mass Communication. Further, she expressed how much she loves what she is doing now, “Masaya talaga ako sa trabaho ko. Ito talaga yung gusto kong tahakin forever sa buhay ko.”
