Bella: I started watching Youtube videos about fashion, lifestyle, beauty and DIY when I was 12 years old. I was so fascinated by how these Youtubers make their own videos—from conceptualizing, to filming, to editing. I got so inspired and so motivated that I then found myself wanting to learn the craft. My channel came as a surprise to many because I am naturally shy and timid. My desire to be more confident about myself inspired me to pursue my YouTube channel. YouTube has taught me how to express myself more and how to go out of my comfort zone.
AL: You have great videos where you have gotten to interview many local celebrities. Who made you the most nervous and which interview was your favorite?
B: I had the chance to do a behind the scenes of Daniel Padilla’s concert in Manila. I prepared a lot of questions for him but managed to ask just 2 because I got so nervous! It was my first time to interview an actor and he was no ordinary actor, he is DANIEL PADILLA! I couldn’t look at him straight in the eye, my cheeks turned red and I was really shaking!
AL: Your channel gives such a relatable and youthful vibe through your makeup tutorials, hauls and DIYs. Which specific video was your favorite to film and why?
B: I don’t have any favorite in my video as I always put so much love and effort in all my videos, but I definitely love filming sit-down videos like monthly favorites and hauls because it really feels like I’m talking to my #BellaFam. These can sometimes be time consuming to film, but I still love to film these kinds of videos.
AL: If you had the chance to collaborate with any YouTuber, who would it be and what would you do?
B: If given the chance, I would love to collaborate with one of my favorite YouTubers, Alisha Marie. I have watched every single video of hers! I love her so much! I adore her bubbly and fun personality. I’m going to LA this summer and I’m hoping and really praying that I get to meet her. A challenge video with her would be really fun and exciting! It’s free to dream, right? :)
AL: Being one of the younger content creators in the Philippines, do any of your ‘Ates’ and ‘Kuyas’ give you advice on the industry?
B: I consider Wil Dasovich (Tsong & Tsonggo) my Kuya in the industry because he treats me like family. He is so genuine and so warm. He gives me a lot of advice and tips on how to be successful in our field. He is very supportive of me and I will be forever grateful.
AL: Can you give 5 fun facts about yourself?
- I get a lot of bashing about my full lips and eye bags, but what can I do, I got them since birth! (lol!)
- When I was a child, I was a cry baby. I cried about almost anything.
- I don't like pasta with red sauce.
- I thought “pawnshop” was where you buy prawns. (lol!)
- I’m afraid of lizards.
AL: A message to your dedicate viewers and growing audience?
B: I want to thank my #BellaFam for the endless love and support. I am truly humbled and so overwhelmed. I wouldn’t be here without you guys. You’re all amazing! I love you all!!
