My 30s: A turning point in my life If I had to describe my 20s in a word it would be glamour. From all the fun times I had during my college days, just drinking and clubbing with my friends to becoming a radio jock, model, actress and host, it’s definitely been exciting. I had the opportunity to be infront of the mic and camera, having people doll me up and living very comfortably. Not saying that it was all fun, I had my fair share of being a newbie in the industry, heartbreaks, hardships etc(just as everyone else). But When I look back now, I can definitely say I lived my life to the fullest. Now that I’m in my 30s, life has changed 180! I got married, moved to Australia, and now…got a job! For this past week I worked as a trainee for a restaurant being a waitress (I did graduate with a degree in HRM and worked also at Your Local for about a year as a Maitre d). Honestly when I moved to Sydney I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I felt like I was back to zero, with not knowing what career path I’d want to take. I didn’t feel like I fit in that glamorous life of being a model anymore, and wanted to move past it to something I would grow into. Maybe even spend the rest of my life doing. After months of thinking and discussing with family, I got to choose something I thought would be a good match for my strengths and personality. I can’t tell you right now but will definitely update everyone once it starts! So for now, I need to earn my tuition fee to get a degree for that job I want in the future(tuition fees for international students are extremely expensive here!!!). I’ve already met some awesome pinoy guests at the restaurant I work in and I was delighted how nice they were! If you ever meet me don’t be shy! It’s creepier if you just stare hahaha Looking forward to my new start,taking responsibility for my future. These are exciting times, it’s never too late to start again. Don’t ever be afraid to do something new, to start from the bottom and build your way up again. Thank you to my followers who have been supportive even after I got married, moved to Australia and don’t work as a sexy model hahaha I love you guys! Have the courage to start!❤️

“Now that I’m in my 30s, life has changed 180! I got married, moved to Australia, and now… got a job!” the “Pinoy Big Brother” alum announced.

“For this past week I worked as a trainee for a restaurant being a waitress,” she said, adding that she had a degree in hotel and restaurant management, and worked in Makati City restaurant Your Local.

She reflected on how her life has changed in her 30s compared to her 20s, describing her younger years as one of “glamour.”

“From all the fun times I had during my college days, just drinking and clubbing with my friends to becoming a radio jock, model, actress and host, it’s definitely been exciting,” she recalled.

She said that when she moved to Sydney, she did not know what career path to take, and that the “glamorous life of being a model” was no longer something she wanted.

“After months of thinking and discussing with family, I got to choose something I thought would be a good match for my strengths and personality,” she said. “I can’t tell you right now but will definitely update everyone once it starts!”

Her stint at the restaurant has led her to meet Filipino guests. Park advised, “If you ever meet me don’t be shy! It’s creepier if you just stare hahaha.”

“Looking forward to my new start, taking responsibility for my future,” she declared. “Don’t ever be afraid to do something new, to start from the bottom and build your way up again.”

She also thanked fans for their support “even after I got married, moved to Australia and don’t work as a sexy model.”

Park wed her husband John, a Filipino raised in Australia, last March. She said that they had to postpone their wedding ceremony due to the coronavirus pandemic but got legally married in the presence of her husband’s family. JB
