As Ivana Alawi marked her milestone of achieving more than 10 million followers on video-sharing platform YouTube, she released a vlog which featured clips of Joselito Martinez who touched her heart with his inspiring life story.
While Ivana garnered praises for the help she has extended to the viral kutsinta vendor even after the release of her vlog, there were also those who criticized her for what she has done.
Apparently, she has received threats saying they would sue the actress-vlogger for allegedly violating protocols. But for Ivana, she is ready to fight for it because she knows her intentions were pure from the beginning.
“Kung may nilabag akong batas, eh di kasuhan nalang nila ako. Haharapin ko ‘yun. Lalaban ako, ‘di ba? Kasi para sa akin, I didn’t do anything wrong. Ang intention ko was just to help out and to inspire people,” Ivana said.
“Wala akong tinapakan na tao, wala akong sinaktan na tao. Masaya ako sa video and I would do it again,” she added.
Sharing what she has learned in life, she added: “Hayaan na lang natin. Narealize ko sa buhay, parang no matter what you do, kung may gagawin kang maganda, kung may gagawin kang hindi maganda, laging may masasabi sila.”
Meanwhile, Ivana also gave an updates on Ormoc native Tatay Joselito, saying: “Right after ko nilabas ‘yung vlog na street prank, nagkita kami after two days. Pina-swab ko siya tapos nakapag-usap, nag-lunch, and I helped out in my own small ways.
Apart from buying Tatay home appliances, Ivana also gifted him with a brand new motorcycle.
“Hindi pa po tapos. Tay, motor niyo po ‘yan. Sa inyo na po ‘yan, Tay,” Ivana said. “‘Wag na po kayo magba-bus masyado. Sa inyo na po ‘yan, Tay,” Ivana added.
Tatay then broke down into tears before telling his wife: “May sasakyan na tayo.”
