Maymay on her showbiz success: ‘Si Lord ang provider ng lahat ng ito’

It wasn’t an easy ride for the young star—she got rejected and failed a couple of times. But her family’s support never flustered. Carrying nothing but her faith and talent, Maymay has once again decided to audition for ABSCBN’s reality TV show, Pinoy Big Brother.  

Sa audition na yun, doon ko na-realize na ang sarap sa feeling kapag motivated ka dahil alam mong may inspirasyon ka—hindi lang dahil gusto mo, kundi dahil may inspirasyon ka. At yun ang pamilya ko,” Maymay tells Fr. Tito Caluag.

“Dahil doon, mas lumalabas yung totoong ako. Mas hindi ko ikinakahiya yung totoong ako dahil alam kong maraming mai-inspire or matutulungan lalo sa mga nangagarap tulad ko,” she adds.

It was an answered prayer for Maymay and her family. She did not only become one of the housemates of Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky Season 7, she was also named its “Big Winner” in 2017.

Nung nanalo ako, nag-flashback lahat ng failures ko, ng struggles ko. Buti na lang talaga hindi ako sumuko. Worth it lahat,” she said.

But with all her success in the industry, Maymay remained true to her faith. She is very vocal about her faith and she thanks God for everything good that happened to her.

Simula po noong struggle na yun hanggang sa naging successful na ako, nandito pa rin, nire-remind pa rin ako. Masasabi ko talaga na mas lalo akong napamahal sa Kanya. Mas lalong nag-grow yung faith ko sa Kanya,” Maymay tells Fr. Tito Caluag.

Dahil doon Father, mas lalong naging clear sa akin na kaya pala tayo binibigyan ng biyaya ng Panginoon para tayo yung maging biyaya sa mga mas nangangailangan sa atin,” she said.

Family is Love

Amid all the success she has attained, Maymay hasn’t forgotten her roots. Her success brought her closer to her family and she gratefully shares her countless blessings with them.

Dati nung nag-audition ako, tinatawanan lang nila ako pero alam kong sinusuportahan nila ako. Ngayon, paulit-ulit, tuwing nagkukuwento sila, grabe ang pasasalamat nila. Hanggang ngayon naiiyak pa rin sila sa tuwa, sa blessing na binigay ni Lord sa amin,” she said.

“Every time siguro nag-uusap kami, lagi sila nagpapasalamat. Yun lang, enough na para ma-feel good ako. Sabi nila sana makabawi sila. Sabi ko, ‘Hindi kasi ito ay pangarap ko para sa inyo at hindi ko kailangan naman ng kapalit.’ Yung pagtulong ko, hindi ko naman obligasyon yun. Yung pagtulong ko, buong puso kong binigay yun,” she added.

Staying Humble

Maymay’s star continues to shine in the showbiz industry but her humbleness remains unchanged.  

Para sa akin, hindi naman talaga mawawala yung overwhelmed ka na feeling mo, ‘Grabe kaya ko pala ito. Wow naa-achieve ko ito, baka kung kaya ko, hindi na yata kailangan humingi ng tulong kay Lord.’ Temptation ‘yun,” she said.

Dahil doon, isa sa mga nagpapa-remind sa akin every time na nafi-feel ko yun, lagi akong bumabalik sa Ephesians 2:8-9… Wala talagang dapat ika-proud or i-brag dahil (ang provider ng) lahat ng ito ay ang Panginoon,” she added.
