After becoming the fifth housemate to be evicted from the Pinoy Big Brother house, former teen housemate Haira Palaguitto is still reaching for her dreams after being invited to join Squad Plus this year.

Nung binalita na sa amin na makakasama na kami sa Squad Plus, sobrang speechless ko talaga kasi hindi ko siya talaga in-expect na mangyayari sa akin kasi before nanunuod lang ako ng mga vlog nila sa YouTube. After ng PBB biglang ang daming opportunities. Nakakagulat sobra na sinabi nila na magiging part na ako ng Squad Plus. Super thankful ako and blessed.

After PBB, super daming nagbago. Sobrang daming opportunities na dumating and super nakaka-overwhelm. Hanggang ngayon hindi pa rin masyado nag-si-sink in na tapos na yung PBB tapos ngayon nasa Squad Plus na ako. Sobrang daming pagbabago lalo na buhay ko kasi ang dami na ding mga na-a-achieve na mga hindi ko nakukuha before. So super thankful ako na naging part ako ng PBB Connect,” she said.

The 17-year-old teen known as the “Makatang Marikit ng Pangasinan” on PBB said she plans to stay true to how fans have grown to know and love her in PBB now that she is joining showbiz.

Sa totoo lang hindi ko alam kung anong meron sa akin para kunin ako as member ng Squad Plus. Kasi sobrang simple ko lang po at yung mga ginagawa ko sa PBB parang simple lang kaya hindi ko rin alam kung ano yung nakita nila sa akin. Pero super thankful ako na kinuha nila ako as member ng Squad Plus,” she said.

Fans of her love team “Kairon” with fellow PBB housemate Kyron Aguilar will also be happy to know that Haira is in constant touch with him even after the show.

Palagi naman kaming nag-uusap and yung na-build naming relationship nung nandun kami sa bahay ni Kuya, mas tumatag pa yun ngayon na nandito na kami sa labas. Talaga namang honest kami sa isa’t isa kasi ayaw din naman namin masira kung ano yung na-build naming friendship and para na rin sa mga sumusuporta sa amin as love team, gusto namin ipakita sa kanila na hindi kami yung parang after ng PBB wala na agad. Gusto namin ipakita sa kanila na true kami and totoo kami kung ano yung meron. Basta ganun (laughs),” she explained.

Just like any celebrity, Haira said she is already preparing herself to deal with critics online.

Prinepare ko yung sarili ko mentally kasi sobrang babaw lang talaga ng emotion ko so feeling ko hindi ko makakaya yung mga basher so prinepare ko talaga yung sarili ko. Kasi alam ko naman dito sa pinasukan ko hindi puwede yung basta ka na lang susuko. Dapat matatag yung loob mo, dapat malakas yung loob mo,” she explained.

For her fans, Haira shared how she plans to show appreciation for all their love and support for her and her career. “Ang naiisip ko na paraan para ma-acknowledge ko sila at para maisip din nila na hindi lang sila yung nagmamahal sa akin kundi ako rin po bilang hinahangaan at sinusuportahan nila, mahal ko rin sila. At isa rin kasi sila sa mga rason kung bakit hindi ako sumusuko, kung bakit ako matatag, at bakit gusto ko magpatuloy. Gusto ko na isang araw maipakita ko sa kanila na hindi sila magsisisi na sinuportahan nila ako,” she added.
