Donna Cariaga on newfound fame: ‘Medyo matatagalan bago mag-sink in sa akin’


 

Funny One grand winner Donna Cariaga confessed that she is still overwhelmed by the opportunities coming her way after winning the competition.

Hinahanap ko pa po sa sarili ko kung saang part po sa akin ‘yung nagustuhan nila at sinu-support nila so feeling ko po medyo matatagalan bago mag-sink in sa akin,” she said in an interview with PUSH.

She added that she is still not used to show business. “Kasi po ako po mismo fangirl pa rin po ako so kapag may nakikita po akong [artista] nasta-star struck po ako. Sa ngayon po sabi rin naman nong nagha-handle for now maging mabait lang tapos i-treat lang sila ng maayos kasi nandiyan sila to support me,” she stated.

Donna dreams of working with box-office star Vice Ganda someday. “Ano po siya kumbaga ‘pag sinabi niyo pong comedy, Vice Ganda, isa po talaga sa top list ‘yan,” she said.

When it comes to her winnings, Donna relayed that she is saving it for her mom’s homecoming. Her mom has been working in Lebanon for 11 straight yeas.

“‘Yung number one po na pinaglalaanan ko ay ‘yung pag-uwi ni mama so feeling ko po pagnakauwi na ‘yung mother ko hahayaan ko rin po siya na i-advise ako kung papaano ko po gagamitin ‘yun,” she said.

Unlike her character in Funny One, Donna is happily in a relationship in real life. She shared that her boyfriend has really been supportive of her new journey.

“Ayon actually siya po ‘yung unang umiyak kaysa sa akin. Nato-touch po ako sa support niya at tsaka hanggang ngayon sinasamahan niya ako na medyo nangangapa ako sa mga nangyari. Nandiyan po siya to support me, para sabihin sa akin ‘yung mga hindi ko nakikita at hindi ko alam,” she shared.
