Juliana Gomez prefers public service over politics: "Just helping the community and help make this country a better place."


Nagpapasalamat ang anak nina Ormic City Mayor Richard Gomez at Leyte Representative Lucy Torres-Gomez na si Juliana dahil marami Pinoy ang interesadong makilala siya at mapabilang siya sa mundo ng showbiz.

"It's flattering that they're curious about me, but I don't think like it's anything," pahayag ni Juliana nang eksklusibong nakapanayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) noong September 3, sa kanilang bahay sa Makati City.

"I think it's nice to know that people are interested, and I find that very flattering."

Mamayang gabi, September 8, ipagdiriwang ni Juliana ang kanyang 18th birthday sa isang disco-themed party sa Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

ON JOINING SHOWBIZ

Marami sa kanyang Instagram followers, maging mga taga-suporta ng kanyang mga magulang, ang nagnanais na pasukin rin Juliana ang showbiz.

Hindi naman itinanggi ni Juliana na minsan nang sumagi ito sa isip niya.

Ngunit pahayag nito, "Well, I've established this with every one around me. I can't be a singer 'cause I can't really sing.

"I can't be a dancer 'cause that's my hidden talent... But acting, honestly, I've considered it before.

"Because people always ask me so obviously you think about it every once in a while.

"But I realized, if I do enter that world, I have big shoes to fill."

Dagdag pa ni Juliana, "If ever I do want to go into that direction, I really wanna give it my all, but right now, it's not my priority."

Sa ngayon nais muna ni Juliana mag-focus sa kanyang pag-aaral lalo't magtatapos na ito sa senior high school.

ON JOINING BB. PILIPINAS

Kung hindi man maging artista, ilang sa kanyang Instagram followers ang nagbanggit na may tiyansa itong maging susunod na Miss Universe ng bansa.

Ngunit ayon kay Juliana, hindi nito nakikita ang sarili na maging isang beauty queen.

Pahayag nito, "It hasn't crossed my mind because I just don't see myself being a beauty queen.

"I can't picture myself being there, on that stage, in front of a lot of people and representing my country in that way."

Baka hindi rin daw kayanin ni Juliana ang pressure na maging isang kandidata sa ganitong klase ng kompetisyon.

Aniya, "I think it's because I really have a bad stage fright. Even when dad watches me play volleyball, I get super nervous.

"So what more if I'm competing in a pageant and I have thousands and thousands of Filipinos watching me and cheering for me.

"I don't know if I can take that much pressure."

ON JOINING POLITICS

Samantala, tinanong na rin ng PEP.ph kung nais ba nitong pasukin ang pulitika gayong parehong nagseserbisyo sa gobyerno ang kanyang mga magulang.

Ayon kay Juliana, ibang uri ng public service ang nais nitong tahakin at hindi pulitika.

Pahayag nito sa PEP.ph, "Not necessarily politics but public service.

"Just helping the community and help make this country a better place."

Nais ni Juliana na maging bahagi ng charity programs at nagbabalak ring magtayo ng sarili nitong foundation upang makatulong sa mga nangangailangan.

"I've been doing it ever since. I was fortunate enough to go to schools that really immerse their students into outreaches like feeding programs, paiting churches, painting houses, and it's just really fulfilling for me. 

"So maybe not politics because, it's so messy, but if it's things like that then yeah, definitely."

Patuloy ni Juliana, "Eventually, I want to start my own foundation.

"My friends and I were actually talking about it, but we just need more time to figure it out and may be I can talk about it more when every thing is set."
