This 8-Year Old Perfectly Copied Nadine Lustre's Instagram Feed! Meet @lilmissnadya.

It was a normal day at the Preview HQ when our intern Megan mentioned this Nadine super-fan on Instagram and how she would copy Nadz's Instagram posts. I was intrigued and so I stalked. 

That's one impressive feed for an 8-year oldWait, doesn't her profile pic look familiar??

There are a lot of fanmade paraphernalia on the internet, but this 8-year old took it to an A++ (and incredibly cute!) fan girl level. We have to admit, her composition, photo quality, and filters are on point.

Profile pic twinsies!

She gets Nadine's cropping and poses right almost 100% of the time.

Meet Jamelah Jane "Milang" Cabello from Narvacan, Ilocos Sur, and she has (so far) recreated 33 of Nadine's IG photos. I talked to the grade schooler (let that sink in for a bit) on how, why, and when did she start her ingenious (and quite witty) account.

When did you start being Nadine's fan?

Nagsimula po akong maging fan ni ate Nadine noong napanood ko po yong Diary ng Panget. Tawang-tawa po ako, havey-na-havey po yung pagganap ni ate Nadine. Super love ko po yung character niya na si Eya. Nakakainspire po yung story po niya.  Nagpabili pa po ako ng books at dvd kaya simula noon paulit ulit ko na po syang pinapanood at hindi po ako nagsasawa.

How old were you when you opened your IG account?

7 po ako nung nagstart po akong maging @lilmissnadya.

Prosthetics? Not a problem.

Who takes your photos? 

Noong una si mama ko po ngpipicture po sa akin. Pero noong pinanganak na po niya po yung baby brother ko po na si James (pinangalan po kay kuya James Reid, ako po nagbigay po ng name) naging busy na po siya, kaya si Tito Jem ko na po ang tumutulong po sa akin.

Emote level 99.

Who helps you come up with the outfits or look for the same outfits?

Si Tito ko din po ngiimprovise po ng mga sinusuot ko po. Minsan tinatahi po niya, o kaya iniipit na lang po sa likod para hindi po magmukhang maluwang po yung mga damit. Kung ano lang po yung meron po, yun na lang po yung ginagamit po namin. Hindi na po kami bumibili.

What was the hardest image/photo to copy?

Yung mga medyo sexy picture po ang pinakanahihirapan po ako. Matagal ko pong nakukuha yung final photo po. Kagaya po nito, beach scarf lang po yung ginamit po dito.

Pero marami na din po akong failed shots na hindi ko po inuupload kasi hindi po pumasa.

What did Nadine say when you finally met her?

@lilmissnadya meets real Nadya!

Dalawang araw po akong nagabsent sa school kasi hindi po ako nakalapit sa kanya noong first day po dahil sa dami ng tao. Sobrang kinakabahan po ako noon, nagpost po siya ng video po namin sa Snapchat. '"Say hi!" sabi niya po dun sa video,  pero hindi po ako nakasagot kasi parang wala na po akong naririnig. Ipinakita ko po sa kanya po yung scrapbook ko na ang laman po ay yung mga pictures na ginagaya ko po siya. Tapos tuwang-tuwa po sya! Nakyokyotan po siya don sa mga pictures tapos sinulatan po niya yung scrapbook ko ng "Stay amazing! Keep your head up no matter what!". Mag-aral daw po ako ng mabuti. Napakabait nya po sa akin, hinding hindi ko po yun makakalimutan. Hindi ko po akalain na dito sa lugar po namin sa Vigan ko pa po sya makikita.
