Angel Locsin, an empowered woman through and through; A throwback to one of her most memorable interviews where she talked about her immersion in Lanao!




For the celebration of International Women's day last March 8, a fan expressed her admiration to Angel Locsin for being an amazing and empowered woman.


On her Instagram account, she wrote, "March 8 — International women’s day. Today we celebrate not just one woman but every women out there who are fearless, fierce, determined and empowered. Women who live their life to be the best in everything; best daughter, best sister, best friend, best mother, best partner/wife while working on to be the best version of herself. Today let me just put on the spotlight to Angelica Colmenares by looking back to this interview that happened 11 years ago which is one of my favorites. She is THAT woman, an amazing woman who proudly speaks her mind about issues that matter. An empowered and fearless one! Happy International Women’s day! #AngelLocsin #InternationalWomensDay"


The video shared on her Instagram post was Angel Locsin's one of most memorable interviews where she talked about her three-day immersion in Mindanao on national TV in the now defunct show The Buzz.




"Nagtataka ako bakit simula pa nung panahon ng Espanyol hindi pa rin natatapos ang gyera sa Mindano, so gusto ko lang masagot yung mga katanungan ko na hindi lang 'yung gustong sabihin sa atin ng media so pumunta talaga ako dun"  the actress said when asked about the reason why she decided to do the immersion in Lanao.


Angel Locsin was then asked if she was able to find the answers to her questions, the actress emotionally shared her thoughts and said "Alam ko po Tito Boy na dun sa tatlong araw na pamamalagi ko dun hindi ko talaga malalaman ang lahat. Pero dun sa tatlong araw na pag-stay ko dun, nakita ko na hindi naman 'yung mga Muslim at Kristiyano ang nag-aaway talaga, ang totoong kaaway nila, 'yung kahirapan, 'yung kawalan ng lupa saka 'yung cultural displacement nila dun. At sa tingin ko kasi mas hindi nila kailangan ng awa, o kaya ng relief o charity work ang kailangan nila dun 'yung pagkilala sa kanila na bilang isang tao, bilang isang Pilipino."


Angel Locsin was just 24 years old when she bravely asked to give peace and justice in Mindanao a chance on national TV. She has been very consistent in speaking her mind about things that matter since and because of the causes she support and her humanitarian efforts, she was recognized by Forbes Asia as one of the 30 heroes of philanthropy!


A woman worth emulating indeed!
