"Bilang isang Pilipino, ginagawa ko lang din ang parte ko."

This was Angel Locsin’s answer when asked why she tirelessly helps those who are in need.

In an interview in We Rise Together, the actress remarked that while she is doing her part as a Filipino, she hopes that she inspires others to help our fellow Filipinos too. 


“‘Yun lang naman talaga 'yon. I'm sure lahat ng mga nandito, ay ginawa rin naman nila ang part nila bilang isang Pilipino. Lagi nga nating sinasabi sa 'Iba 'Yan,' iba tayong mga Pilipino, iba tayo magbayanihan. So bilang isang Pilipino ginagawa ko lang din ang parte ko at sana ma-inspire din ang ibang tao na gawin din ang parte nila. Iyon lang naman," she stated.

Angel spearheaded various initiatives this year to combat COVID-19 pandemic and to help the victims of the recent calamities brought by the onslaught of typhoon Ulysses. 

She was also one of the stars at the forefront at the fight for ABS-CBN and its workers when the House committee denied it a new franchise last July. 

Angel relayed that she actually recently ventured into vlogging to provide jobs for those who were retrenched because of the ABS-CBN shutdown.

"Nagkaroon ng retrenchment sa ABS-CBN, inisip namin bakit hindi tayo mag-vlog para mabiyan natin ng trabaho ang mga nawalan ng trabaho. Kahit paano ay makapag-provide tayo. So doon kami nagsimula. Para magamit mo rin ang platform mo to raise awareness o makapag-give back din sa mga tao," she stated.

Aside from providing jobs, Angel wants to use vlogging as a platform for her to give back and to reach out to other people.

"Of course, sisingitan mo ng mga episode na gustong marinig ng mga tao para mag-subscribe sila. Pero nandoon pa rin 'yung goal natin na ito ay para sa tao, mag-give back tayo. And I think lahat ng mga gumagawa ng vlogs ngayon ay ginagamit nila ang platform nila para mas maka-reach sila at maka-influence ng mas maraming tao," she stated. 

Angel shared that she is set to do collaborations as well for her vlog soon. 

"May mga usapan na kami ng collaborations na talaga but nahihirapan lang kami sa schedules, sa kung paano kasi siyempre may protocols ngayon. Kailangan pang magpa-antigen ganyan. Medyo complicated lang ngayon pero gustong-gusto ko talaga 'yon,"  she revealed.
