PBB second Big Placer Andrea Abaya on facing bashers: ‘No one else can define who I am’

After becoming the second Big Placer during the PBB Connect Big Night last March 14, the teen housemate known as the “Cheerdance Sweetheart ng Parañaque” Andrea Abaya shared her mixed feelings over her stint on the popular reality show. Andrea became second big placer after receiving 16.60% of the total votes and won a PHP500,000 prize.

“Yung journey ko dito sa bahay ni Kuya was a rollercoaster ride of emotions. Sobrang daming pagsubok. Ang daming mahihirap na challenges, as in ilang beses ako umiyak dito sa bahay ni Kuya pero alam ko na sobrang worth it. Ang dami kong natutunan and most of all, may nabuo akong pamilya dito at yun ay ang mga housemates. Fulfilling din dahil kung anong pagsubok yung hinarap ko dito, ang dami kong natutunan and nag dami kong na-achieve kahit manalo man kami or matalo sa mga weekly task namin, sa mga challenges. At the end of every challenge, we all feel like winners dahil sa mga lessons na nakukuha namin sa mga hamon ni Kuya,” she shared during the PBB Connect Big Night mediacon event.

 


 

Ready to face the outside world after a hundred days inside the PBB house, Andrea hopes to inspire other people with what she learned.

“Yung strength and yung lahat ng natutunan ko dito sa bahay ni Kuya, gusto kong i-spread sa  outside world. Gusto kong i-share yung strength na ito at yung lessons na ito sa pamilya ko, sa mga kaibigan ko and sa lahat ng taong nagsusuporta sa akin. Kasi yung strength na ito yung tumulong talaga sa akin para mag-grow and para i-develop yung character ko and I believe na makakatulong din ito sa maraming tao,” she explained.

Joining the real world also means the possibility of facing her bashers and Andrea said she is ready to handle them.

“Naniniwala ako na handa akong harapin yung mga magiging bashers ko sa outside world and ma-ha-handle ko ito through knowing who I really am kasi ako yung nakakakilala sa sarili ko and no one else can define who I am and yun lang yung magiging mindset ko with these bashers,” she added.
