“Ako 'yung nabu-bully lagi sa school. Lagi nilang tinatawag na higad ako, kasi nga sa kilay ko, tsaka kasi ako 'yung pinakamaliit...
“Wala akong friends, as in pagpasok ko pa lang sa school, nursery pa lang, wala na akong friends. Hindi nila ako sinasali sa laro nila, lagi lang akong nasa corner. Ako 'yung ganung bata dati," she shared.
However, she was able to slowly overcome her issues with shyness and improve her personality so that she could socialize more and not be misinterpreted as a snob.
“Pero ngayon winork out ko na 'yung personality ko kasi nami-misinterpret 'yung pagiging mahiyain ko sa pagiging maldita.
"Yung wall ko medyo bine-break ko na siya. Kahit maraming masamang tao hindi dapat 'yun maging dahilan para baguhin mo 'yung pagiging mabait mo,” Andrea explained.
