Beauty Gonzalez tries ‘something new’; undergoes police training
MANILA, Philippines — Saying she wants to try something new, actress Beauty Gonzalez on Wednesday revealed she is now undergoing police training.
In a guest appearance in the morning show “Magandang Buhay”, Gonzalez said she started her training for the Special Operations Unit (SOU) of the Philippine National Police-Aviation Security Group as soon as quarantine measures in Metro Manila were relaxed.
“After ECQ, GCQ, I tried something new. I tried something na hindi mo ma-imagine (that you could never imagine). So I’m doing police training now for the SOU of the [PNP] Aviation Security Group,” she revealed.
“So they are training me for the anti-hijacking terrorism,” the Kapamilya actress and Pinoy Big Brother alumna added.
Gonzalez added that she’s happy with the training, adding that it serves as an eye-opener for her.
“I’m happy kasi talagang kinukuha nila ako to recruit new police [members], ‘yung gusto mong sumali sa kanila,” Gonzalez said.
(I’m happy because they chose me to recruit new police members, those who really want to join them.)
“Talagang nakaka-inspire kasi this is a career na magbibigay sa iyo ng dignity, camaraderie, and you are serving the Philippines. Iba ‘yung feeling to serve the Filipinos,” she added.
(It really is inspiring because this is a career that will give you dignity, camaraderie, and you are serving the Philippines. It really is a different feeling to serve the Filipinos.)
Gonzalez also said that the training would also help her in acting.
”Magagamit din natin ito sa craft natin kasi na-experience ko ito. Sabi ko, tama na ang drama. Hindi man ako nakapasok pa sa ‘Ang Probinsyano’ dito na muna ako,” she said in jest.
(I can use this in my craft because I experienced this. I told myself, enough of drama. I may not have joined “Ang Probinsyano” yet so this is where I’ll settle for now.)
Gonzalez was a lead actress of the highly-rated afternoon soap “Kadenang Ginto,” which also starred Dimples Romana, Albert Martinez, Andrea Brillantes, and Francine Diaz.
