What is a Cosmo Girl?
That and a few other questions were answered by TV host-actress Nikki Gil in an interview with Cosmo TV.
"I imagine a Cosmo Girl to be someone who’s, like, weathered the storm.
"Someone who has gone through a lot of challenges in life, but still managed to look good through it all and get out of it.
Just as she described, Nikki is indeed the perfect choice to become the cover girl of Cosmopolitan Philippines Magazine's December 2013 issue.
After her breakup with Billy Crawford—whom she thought she would end up marrying—Nikki is back on her feet and is now taking on the world with a new persepective.
She reveals that just did her first major "fearless act" this year.
"It’s the first time that I took a trip by myself. I went to Europe.
"I was with a friend, but it was still a big leap for me because I would always travel with my parents or I always travel for work.
"But this year, I took that plunge."
With everything she has been through in 2013, what is next for Nikki Gil?
"Work until this age, get engaged, get married, have the kids… it hasn’t been working out so far!
"But, I know that it will happen soon, so...
"I really can’t say. I can't tell. I don’t think there is a formula.
"I mean, I thought there was, so I’m really just waiting for life, for God, to surprise me with what’s next, and I think it’s more exciting that way."
