#MEGAPinoyPride: Our modern-day hero, Angel Locsin!




In this time of pandemic, we have seen how people persevere to help each other. People come together to help our frontliners, health workers and those who are in need. One person that first comes to mind when it comes to helping others is Angel Locsin, dubbed as real-life Darna.


Darna, a fictional character created by Mars Ravelo is known to have her supernatural powers and using them to fight villains to save the country and bring peace just like Angel Locsin who, without any supernatural powers always fly to far-flung areas to extend help and bring smile to people who were badly affected by disasters whether it be man-made or natural.


To commemorate Philippines' Independence day, MEGA Magazine listed ten talented and tenacious individuals that truly makes us proud to be a Filipino one of which is Angel Locsin.




Over the past decade we have seen how Angel Locsin rose to the occasion every time our country is in dire need of help and bayanihan. No one can ever forget her efforts during typhoon Ondoy where she helped packing and distributing relief goods, she also spearheaded an online auction called Shop and Share together with her friends in the industry Anne Curtis and Dimples Romana. When the country was badly hit by typhoon Yolanda, she once again did a very selfless act by donating her vintage car Chevrolet Chevelle to Sagip Kapamilya. Proceeds from the sale of her car was used to build classrooms in areas badly affected by the said super typhoon.


In the recent years, we are touched by her benevolence when she visited war-stricken Marawi to check on our Muslim brothers and sisters who were displaced. She is also one of the first ones to visit the quake-hit areas in Mindanao and since the onset of the pandemic, we have seen her maximize her resources to raise funds that can aide our health workers combat this virus.


As we all know, Angel Locsin would rather not draw attention for herself but being THE Angel Locsin that she is, it is impossible for her grand gesture of altruism to go unnoticed. In fact, just recently, she was recognized by a prestigious business magazine Forbes Asia as one of 30 Heroes Of Philanthropy: Catalysts For Change. Her humanitarian efforts did not stop there as she continues to be a catalysts for change at present. A real-life Darna and angel indeed!
