Kathryn Bernardo went to South Africa last July to do a two-day shoot for MEGA magazine's annual fashion issue after she was handpicked by the publication's editorial team as one of the most popular stars of her generation. Kath was accompanied by her mother Min and shot fashion editorials in a nature reserve along with Maja Salvador, Julia Barretto, and Erich Gonzales. The girls were also able to do some sightseeing on the side and explore the wilderness as well as get up close with the animals. They were able to stalk some giraffes and even personally vaccinate some antelopes who were being relocated to another location.
Kathryn, who went on stage along with her fellow cover girls at the film showing of the Making MEGA in South Africa documentary at the Meralco theater last September 6, talks about the experience. “Napaka-unforgettable. Yun siguro yung naging bonding namin at na-develop yung friendship namin and of course nabigyan ako ng chance na mas makilala sila. I would like to thank MEGA kasi because of them mas na-develop yung friendship ko sa kanila and for considering me na maging cover girl nila for MEGA magazine September issue,” she said.
In the documentary, Kathryn admitted how thankful and blessed she feels about the stardom she has achieved along with her love team partner Daniel Padilla. “Hindi ko in-expect na ganito ang mararating namin. Kami ni DJ forever magiging thankful sa tao kasi kung wala sila hindi kami aabot dito. Wala, madami kaming hindi magagawa kung wala sila,” she said.
The 18-year-old teen star also talked about her understated yet classic taste in fashion. “Super simple ko lang na tao. Gusto kong look very classic talaga. When I dress up everyday gusto ko yung hindi trendy masyado,” she admitted.
The talented young actress also gave some insight on the reality of being a teen queen in showbiz. “Siguro akala nila pag nag-aartista ka sobrang you have it all sobrang perfect na ng buhay mo. I am like a normal teenage girl, kung paano yung mga problema ko problema din ng ibang teenager. May mga insecurities pa rin ako. Pag nakilala mo ako, madali mo akong makakasundo kasi I can be your friend, puwede mo akong kapatid so mabilis ako magtiwala once na magtiwala ako sa iyo,” she shareD.
