She imparts the best advice on how to gain self-confidence.

Bea Alonzo is indisputably a household name in Philippine show business. With two decades of experience and a handful of awards and nominations under her belt, the 34-year-old actress has proven just how much of a powerhouse she is.

On a vlog by fellow Kapuso actress Kyline Alcantara, Bea recalls how insecure she felt as an ingenue in the industry. "Mga kasabayan ko [noon] sina Anne [Curtis], sina Angel [Locsin], they were all so hot, confident, [and] beautiful. Parang naisip ko [na] parang di ako nakakasabay," she says.

Further explaining the sentiment, Bea remarks that, "Confidence roots from not only accepting what your strengths are, but also accepting your weaknesses. Parang [in] celebrating it, feel ko nawawalan ng power yung shame, or [what you're] fearful of, kapag in-embrace mo siya, pag in-acknowledge mo."
