Rita Gaviola, also known as Badjao Girl, welcomed another milestone in her life.
The former Pinoy Big Brother teen housemate had a boho-inspired party to celebrate her 14th birthday last Saturday, May 13, at MJ Land Resort in Novaliches, Quezon City.
The birthday girl wore a pink floral ball gown, which was bought from Divisoria.
During the program, Rita said it was the first time she had a party, thanks to Grace Kreutzer, a fan who's currently based in Las Vegas, Nevada.
On Instagram, Rita expressed her gratitude to everyone, including her fan club Señorita Global Official: "Maraming salamat po sa mga pumunta.
"Maraming maraming salamat po sa 'yo mami grace dahil ipinaranas mu sa kin ang gantong klaseng kaarawan.
"Maraming salamat po sa mga nagbigay ng message kahit po nasa malayong lugar kayo e nagawa niyo yun para sa kin, sa mga kapatid ko sa Power Casting, mga Teachers...sa Tatay ko na lumuwas pa para masamahan ako na i-celebrate ito...
"Maraming maraming salamat po sa effort na makapunta kayo.
"Hinding-hindi ko po malilimutan ang kaarawan kong ito, dahil first time ko pong mag-celebrate ng birthday at ganito pa!
"Maraming maraming salamat po sa sa nag-ayos at nag-asikaso (señorita global ofc) para mangyari din ito sa pagod at puyat niyo po...
"Mahal na mahal ko po kayong lahat..."
Rita's stepfather Danny Gaviola and two of her siblings drove all the way from Lucena to attend her party.
Some of the celebrities who attended Rita's party were former PBB Lucky 7 housemates Baninay Bautista, Fenech Veloso, and Vivoree Esclito, whom she thanked during the program.
Rita paid tribute to her cultural background and performed the "Igal Igal" dance with her cousin.
She also showcased her musical prowess using a makeshift drum kit.

It was also in charge of the event styling.
