Charo Santos on the Ultra stampede tragedy: ‘It's a lesson that I will never forget’


033017-CSC_Push.jpgSa ulat sa TV Patrol, binahagi ni ABS-CBN Chief Content Officer Charo Santos kung ano ang pinakamahirap niyang challenge nang maupo siyang CEO ng Kapamilya network. Ito diumano ang trahedya ng Ultra stampede noong 2006.

“That’s really one of the most painful chapters in my career. It's a lesson that I will never forget. When I faced the crowd, kahit na takot na takot ako na puwede akong batuhin ng mga bote, hinarap ko yung takot na yun kasi katungkulan ko na akuin ang responsibilidad.”

Ngayon naman, patuloy ang transpormasyon ni Charo bilang bagong pintor. “I have now better appreciation of blending of colors.” Bagong social media user din si Charo, “that was another fear that I had to face. Enjoy naman pala because you’re able to express yourself.”

Pinagkakaabalahan din ni Charo ngayon ang pagiging lola sa una niyang apong lalaki na si Basti Concio. “The Concio name is alive! And I’m telling you he’s going to be a heartthrob.”
