Angel Locsin gives a life-changing advice to an aspiring writer-photographer and it is truly inspiring!




They say, “People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”


It is true for the Instagram user who goes by the handle, Fernando Victor G. Manangan, who posted a candid photo of Angel Locsin captioning it with a long post about how the actress inspired him to be a better version of himself and how big of a fan he is.


The caption went:

Three years ago, I had the great honor of being followed by Angel Locsin here in Instagram.


One of my followers recommended my profile to her and she got curious, visited, became interested in my work and actually pressed the "follow" button.


It was, and still is, one of the biggest "whoah!" moments of my social media life.


At that time, I was in my last year of law school and I was struggling to finish it because I really wanted to start my career as a writer-photographer.


To add to that burden, I was uncertain if I really have what it takes to succeed in those fields.


One day, I had the sudden bravado to send a Direct Message (DM) to her, Angel Locsin, one of the greatest actresses of her generation, to ask for advice.


After a day, she responded. Yes, she actually responded! She advised me to start up a blog so that I may have more avenues for my writing and hopefully get noticed.




Then she told me to believe in my dreams and wished me well. And SHE THANKED ME for my photos and captions.


Imagine being told such things by THE ANGEL LOCSIN? Such kindness from a big, big star to someone so obscure.


It was then that I realized that indeed, Angel Locsin is really a good person, someone with a genuinely kind heart.


That was a judgment made more certain by our few (very few) IG conversations over the years (I do not abuse my DM access to my celebrity followers). And her advice helped me a lot. It emboldened me. It inspired me.


Now, even as I am reviewing for the Bar Exams, my writings now appear in magazines and broadsheets; I now have a blog; and exhibits too. And the future looks promising.


MISS ANGEL, EWAN KO KUNG NAAALALA MO PA LAHAT NG KWENTO KO DITO PERO MARAMING, MARAMING SALAMAT PO. Hopefully, I will meet you someday to personally thank you... GOD BLESS YOU! @therealangellocsin Photo credits: entertainment.inquirer.net


Truly inspiring! This world needs more of you, Angel!
