Television actress Winwyn Marquez has decided to try out for the 2015 Bb. Pilipinas pageant; submitting her application one day before the deadline for screening of candidates.
“Biglaan lang kasi lahat. I just felt na I was ready. Ready na ako, wala lang talagang rason. Yung feeling na game na (Everything was so sudden. I just felt that I was ready. I am ready, and there is no other reason, really, except that feeling of finally being ready.),” the GMA artist told reporters.
The Kapuso actress – who has starred in several of the network’s television shows, like Kambal Sirena,” “Dormitoryo” and “Sunday All Stars” – knows that her decision comes with a certain amount of risk. Among these risks, having to take a leave from her stint at GMA, as candidates are required by the Bb. Pilipinas organizing committee to be free of existing contracts at the time of the pageant.
“I asked for a leave sa GMA,” she said.
“It’s just really a risk. If you really want something, you will take a risk. And I took a risk for that,” Winwyn added.
Now 22-years-old, the actress revealed that joining a beauty pageant has always been one of her dreams, even before she entered the world of show business.
“I’ve always been very vocal about it. Lagi kong sinasabi na gusto kong sumali. Yun talaga yung gusto kong gawin. But kailangan pa madagdagan yung confidence ko, and yung showbiz nakatulong na rin sa akin (I would always say that I want to join. That is really what I want to do. But I needed more confidence, and showbiz has helped me.),” she pointed out.
“It’s been my childhood dream talaga. And ngayon lang ako nagkaroon ng confidence and self-esteem na ituloy yung dream ko naman (It’s been my childhood dream, really. And it is only now that I have the confidence and self-esteepursue that dream.),” Winwyn added.
