Khalil Ramos also shares that his production company aims to produce a series of short films on mental health awareness.
Apart from sharing his talent in singing and acting with the world, Khalil Ramos revealed in an exclusive interview with PUSH how he plans to use his influence as an artist to spread the importance of mental health awareness on social media by putting up his own mental health foundation.
Following a series of tweets that he wrote on Twitter last year, Khalil, who joins fellow Kapamilya star Maris Racal as local clothing and lifestyle brand Penshoppe's newest brand ambassadors, shared how his mom convinced him to put up his own mental health foundation after his thoughts on the then unusually discussed topic went viral.
"It was my mom's idea. Eh, I had a series of tweets that kind of went viral. 'Cause that's what I really want to do—to spread awareness when it comes to mental health and social media when they do intertwine. So my mom, out of nowhere, she was like praying daw and God told her that we can put that to use—my influence sa social media. So she wants to put up a mental health foundation and I told her that it's something we could do because I have a video production company," he said.
Although he and his mom already discussed putting up the mental health foundation, Khalil wants to use his inner artist first by creating short films that would inevitably reach a wider audience.
”We're planning to make a series of short films about mental health and about technology and about social media and how we can be responsible users 'cause it's really something that I believe we should really be aware of right now kasi you can see all the negativity online. It's very discouraging, but that's it we fight for it so people are aware to be much more careful," he stated.
