Inamin ni Nikki Gil na nakaramdam siya ng takot nang yanigin ng malakas na lindol ang Central Visayas noong Martes, Oktubre 15, na nagdulot ng malaking pinsala sa nasabing rehiyon at pagkasawi ng mga buhay.
“It could have happened to anyone of us.
“Just a few days ago, I was in Cebu,” pagbubunyag ng aktres sa Olay press conference na ginanap sa Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, kahapon, October 16, Miyerkules.
“Siyempre nandun yung takot… fear of what the future holds.
“But siyempre, nakikiramay ako sa mga kapamilya natin na naapektuhan.
“What can you do? We pray for those who have survived it at tulungan ang mga naka-survive.”
CELEBRITY INFLUENCE. Ani Nikki, magagamit niya ang kanyang celebrity status para makaimpluwensiya sa iba.
“The celebrity’s influence is also very important to make that awareness... ganito tayo, ganito tumulong, eto ang venue, dito n’yo ibuhos ang inyong efforts.
“At the same time, yung actually doing something about it as an individual is also very important."
Dagdag pa ni Nikki, “Of course, hindi natin pwedeng i-discount ang power ng pagdadasal.”
ON CONFIDENCE. Bilang bagong ambassador ng Olay, naniniwala si Nikki sa isinusulong ng nasabing produkto ang pagkakaroon ng confidence.
“Whatever age you’re in, whatever circumstance you’re in, or what you’re going through, I think it’s a very admirable quality you have.
“For me, having confidence is like having the best accessory you can have.
“I mean, everything else is superficial.
"If you don’t fit into one mould of what beautiful is, confidence can bring you there.”
Naitanong din sa 26-anyos na singer-actress kung ano ang definition niya ng maganda.
Sagot ni Nikki: “That one with confidence, that you don’t have to fit into anyone’s mould.
"You’re comfortable in your own skin, you don’t have to look like someone, you don’t have to be like someone.
"You’re happy with whatever has been to given you and you take care of it.
"So, to me, that’s beautiful.”
