As he prepares for his first digital concert this coming June 18, actor and singer Kyle Echarri said he is excited for his first digital birthday fan con. “June 20 is my birthday. I’m finally turning 18. I’m going to become legal and I have a big surprise para sa lahat ng mga Squadmates and lahat ng sumusuporta sa akin.
The Star magic actor, who is also part of the new digital anthology Click, Like, Share, said he is still so thankful to be part of the Gold Squad for the past two years along with fellow members Andrea Brillantes, Francine Diaz, and Seth Fedelin.
“Nagpapasalamat talaga kaming apat sa Dreamscape dahil sa tiwala bilang as the Gold Squad binigyan kami ng Huwag Kang Mangamba at itong Click, Like, Share. More than two years na kaming Gold Squad and hindi namin akalain na aabot kami sa ganito.
“Nagpapasalamat din kami sa mga Squadmates kasi kung wala kayo wala rin kami. And ang mapapayo ko sa mga bago na nasa Squad Plus, sabi nga ni Seth, it’s a responsibility to be part of ABS-CBN and it’s a responsibility to be part of Squad Plus dahil tayo ay tinitingnan kami na parang role models ng mga kabataan and sobrang blessed kami na binigyan kami ng ganung role. I’m sure kaya nila. I’m sure they don’t need too much help kasi pinili sila dahil alam ng management na kaya nila,” Kyle shared.
With his latest project Click, Like, Share featuring different episodes about the youth and social media culture, Kyle shared what kind of story he would love to be involved in if he had the choice.
“I want to tackle on how and why social media causes depression. Kasi a lot of people especially nowadays kahit hindi sila depressed nakikita nila ang mga taong depressed sa internet na depressed and feeling nila depressed din sila. The more they tell themselves they’re depressed, the more depressed they become. Ang daming mga na-de-depressed kasi yung kaibigan niya ganito, sila wala. Social media can be used in a good way and a bad way and a lot of people have been using it in a bad way which causes depression,” he said.
