I’m one of the new breed of young artists to join Manila Genesis Entertainment & Management Inc. I’ve recently released my debut, self-penned single titled “Beautiful” which was arranged by Jay Durias of South Border. The single’s music video is directed by Joaquin Valdes and is currently enjoying massive airplay on Myx as well as on Manila’s hottest radio stations.
As early as the age of four, I knew what it was like to be without hair. Diagnosed with alopecia areata, a condition that causes patches of hair loss around the body, I have lived through the entire process of experiencing hair fall: losing it little by little, and then deciding to shave it all completely last year. I even tried other hair loss remedies as I lived in the US for several years, including chemical-based products that have resulted in negative side effects.
One day, I’ve decided there was no more hiding. In September 2012, I took a stand and embraced my baldness. Together with my good friend Jing Monis, I’ve shaved my head and began with an Alopecia Areata Awareness Month Instagram campaign in which I’ve invited friends and family to pose with a double “A” sign using their fingers. The campaign grew to success and to date has over a thousand photos. On September 25 of the same year, I did a coming out concert where I performed bald in public for the very first time.
Last year I was highlighted as one of the top 41 best vocalists on The Voice Of The Philippines as one of its chosen contestants out of thousands of aspirants. Also a finalist of the Dove Real Beauty Campaign and one of Meg magazine’s 30 Young Achievers, I’ve made it one of my life goals to be a voice for those with alopecia areata. I am honored to be chosen as brand ambassador to Novuhair. This new platform will help me to continue my advocacy to share my music and life story.
Since using Novuhair, I’ve experienced remarkable results. Visible signs of hair growth appeared within five months of use – and this is after years of baldness caused by alopecia areata. The strands of my hair are thicker and more healthy-looking. My scalp is clearly nourished and invigorated. When it comes to hair growth, nature is on my side with Novuhair.
