After her stint as the “Singing Sweetheart ng Siargao” on Pinoy Big Brother: Kumunity Season 10, Anji Salvacion shared what was her first priority after she left the PBB house.
“Unang una kong ginawa pagkalabas ko ng bahay ni Kuya is tumawag ako sa family ko. Agad ko silang kinumusta since naapektuhan sila badly sa bagyong Odette and I was really worried so the first thing that I did was to call them and ask them if they’re okay and if everything’s fine with them or safe ba sila or are they eating well? Yun yung unang ginawa ko kasi sobrang na-miss ko din sila since I haven’t seen them din for almost three years,” she said during the Bida Star Singer mediacon last March 15.
Looking back on her experience in the reality show, Anji said she never expected to have made it that far in PBB and have the thriving career she now enjoys along with a supportive fandom.
“Sobrang grateful and thankful to God that He has given me this kind of opportunity and this kind of blessing. Kasi who would’ve thought that I would be able to make it to the top two? Nobody did. I didn’t even expect but I was hoping. Sobrang saya ko. Sobrang blessed na God has given it to me. Super blessed din ako dahil hindi lang ito ang binigay ni Lord sa akin eh. He blessed me with a lot of beautiful souls in my life,” she shared.
When she first received the offer to join Aljon Mendoza and Karina Bautista o the latest season of Bida Star Singer, Anji said she immediately jumped at the opportunity even if she has not had that much hosting experience.
“I’m so happy I’ll be working with them. To be honest, I didn’t have any hesitation. Agad agad ko siyang kinuha kasi I know for a fact na I will learn something from this. I’m just so happy. Sobrang shookt ko kaya na bakit ako ang kinuha? (laughs). Sobrang natawa din ako kasi I never expected na I would be hosting din. But for sure I have a lot of things to learn from here and I will be able to apply it to myself din,” she recalled.
During the Bida Star Singer mediacon, Anji shared what she is looking forward to the most in joining the show as one of the hosts.
“It’s because I really wanted to learn and I think this hosting gig could really help with my speech. I really want to improve how the way I talk when I’m around people and the way I talk when I’m on air or on TV. So it’s a great thing din to learn how to talk properly and I know I will learn a lot of things din here sa Bida Star Singer. And to think I’ll be helping out and inspiring other people especially yung mga kabataan na Pilipino to take that step towards achieving their dreams since I experienced the same thing as they do. I’m really so grateful and thankful to be able to host in a singing contest na dun din ako nag-begin,” she added.
