Still not over it. Thank you again @variety Asia for the recognition as one of the Asian Stars Up Next of 2018 ⭐️ This will continue to inspire me to do my best in my chosen craft, pursue my biggest dreams and hopefully inspire others to do so too. As I said in my short speech, I dedicate this to all the Filipino filmmakers and actors who continue to work hard to make films that are not only appreciated by our fellow pinoys but also appreciated by the global audience. PHILIPPINES REPRESENT! 🇵🇭 @iffamacao thank you for graciously hosting us albeit short, it was definitely the sweetest 24 hours! ❤️ #iffamacao #iffam2018
