Iba Yan: Claire shares her inspiring story on how she freed herself from prostitution.




On its 11th episode, Iba Yan put on the spotlight to the stories of strong women who once turned to prostitution to make a living. Though it was a sensitive topic to talk about, the show was able to shed light to their struggles as shared by the people who first-hand experienced exploitation.


Claire Abayon, one of the brave women who came forward to share her story to Angel Locsin narrated how she ended up being a club dancer. With the hopes of helping her family in the province, Claire seeked assistance from her friend whom referred her for a job as a 'waitress'. When she arrived at the said place, she was directed to a dressing room and was instructed to wear skimpy outfits which is far from what she expected.


"Sobrang nahihiya po ako sa sarili ko, naawa" Claire said when asked how did she feel when she went on stage for the first time.

Claire went on and shared her experience on those dark times; "Muntik na po akong mabenta, bibilhin nya ako ng 100K" she recalled.


It was indeed a dark and challenging times for Claire until God sent missionaries from Wipe Every Tear who offered her a scholarship and a chance for her to continue her studies. And through the said organization, Claire was able to finish a bachelor's degree in Business Management major in Marketing Management!


Angel Locsin lauds Claire for sharing her story and was inspired with how she rose above all the struggles through those years. "Isa kang insiprasyon at sana sa pag-open up mo na ito kahit sensitive 'yung topic marami kang matulungan na mga babae, marami kang mainspire at ako nainspire ako sa;yo. Salamat sa kwento mo."
