wow ang ganda ng article :T ., talagang mararamdaman mo na totoong totoo ang sagot ni bebe ASH :11sgMuni:

SCB: You’re life has been a consistent juggling of work schedules and studies…
SG: Umabot po ako ng second year highschool. ‘Yun nga po mahirap silang pagsabayin, maraming kang mga absent, tapos nale-late sa first subject (laughs). Ayoko talaga basta Math. (laughs) Kailangan talaga eventually I had to give up my regular schooling kahit na mahal ko ang UST at ‘yung mga kaklase ko. Hindi ko na natapos ‘yung third year ko. Nag Angelicum College na lang po ako, home study.


weeeeeeee bebe ASH same tayo ayaw ko rin ang math., sakit sa ulo eh =))

SCB: Do you also compose?
SG: Hindi pa, pero sinusubukan ko. ‘Yung mga hurts mo, mga hinanakit mo. Saka na kapag puwede ko na sabihin! (laughs)

:8sgIsip: anu kaya to? napapaisip ko tuloy.,

thank you for sharing.,

Caption: THE PERFECT GIRL. Sarah Geronimo is the ideal artist and the dutiful daughter.
(Photo by ANDREW APUYA)


She may have been to many places around the world, or performed on major stages here and there, but in between, Sarah Geronimo’s thoughts always go back to that Catholic university along Espańa Blvd. in Manila and the what-might-have-beens if she had stayed in school and not become the great performer that she is now.

Of course Sarah loves what she is doing, no doubt about that. Singing after all is her first love and acting is fast becoming her forte, what with her movie hits that came one after the other. Performing gives her a different high, she admits, that she sees herself staying in glitterville for a long, long time. But Sarah also misses going to school, those days when she would physically attend class, listen to teachers, and interact with her classmates.

“The bonding with my classmates, yung friendship na nabubuo, at saka iba kasi yung may teacher na nage-explain sa’yo. That’s what I miss. Pag may tanong ka, may matatanungan kang kaklase, patulong naman sa ganito, ganyan,’’ Sarah tells us in between takes for her new music video.

She knows the trade-offs, that’s for sure. In the quest to reach the top, she had to cut short her regular schooling when things got busier. But Sarah still hopes that one day, she will be able to strike a happy balance between her career and studies. For now, she is content to be taking up an online course at the UP Open University.

“Education is important for the simple reason na hindi forever ang fame. Itong career ko sa showbusiness, malalaos at malalaos din ako. Kaya iba din yung dignity na makukuha mo kapag may degree, may maipagmamalaki ka pag natapos ka, yung respect na makukuha mo sa tao. Kaya kahit mahirap ipagsabay dahil sa schedule ko, tiya-tiyagain ko na lang po,” says the 21-year-old Sarah.

From the struggling girl who would tirelessly audition and join singing contests, to being today’s most successful singer-actress of her generation, Sarah has indeed gone a long way. The third in a brood of four, Sarah willingly embraced the responsibility of taking care of her family after having experienced hardships in life.

“Kapag nararanasan mo na yung hirap, pag gutom na gutom ka na, nakita mo na nahihirapan na yung mga magulang mo, yun na yun. Gagawa ka talaga ng paraan, lalo na kung may kakayahan ka naman kasing tumulong,” shares Sarah who admits that she joined Star for a Night primarily because they were having financial problems at that time.

Indeed, the rewards were bigger than what she expected. She didn’t only win the grand prize, her fate to stardom was sealed. On November 7, Sarah will once again prove that she is worthy of her showbiz star when she mounts a major concert dubbed as “Record Breaker’’, at the Araneta Coliseum.

In this 60 Minutes interview, Sarah candidly reveals her funny, simple and playful side; how she misses living a normal and private life; the freedom she gets from performing; and her personal relationship with her Creator to whom she offers her every song and performance. (Rachel C. Barawid)

STUDENTS AND CAMPUSES BULLETIN
(SCB): You recently figured in the news because of your involvement with TESDA (Technical Education and Skills Development Authority) as its ambassadress. How do you feel being a role model for young people, having been approached to campaigns like this?
SARAH GERONIMO (SG): Siyempre honored ako pero hindi mo matatanggal ‘yung feeling na parang “Am I deserving enough?” Minsan ikukuwestiyon mo ang sarili mo, pero thankful ka na lang at tanggapin mo na lang ‘yung binibigay sa iyo. Ang importante, gawin mo lahat para maging responsable kang endorser. May kasama ring pressure lalo na ‘yung ma-tag ka na role model, parang ang daming kasamang responsibilities po nun eh.

SCB: On what occasions do you feel pressure as a role model? Nakukulayan ba ang galaw mo outside the showbiz circle? Ang daming nakatingin sa ‘yo, nararamdaman mo ba na de-numero ang galaw mo?
SG: Lahat kasi ng galaw ko gusto kong gawin. Pinalaki ako ng parents ko na hindi restricted ang actions ko. ‘Yung kailangan maging good example ako sa edukasyon, kailangan makapagtapos ng pag-aaral, ‘yung pag eendrose ko for TESDA and AMA University parang driving force din sa akin na makapagtapos ng college.

SCB: Are you in school now?
SG: Enrolled po ako ngayon sa UP Open University taking up Associate in Arts. Mag-kaklase kami nina Rachel (Ann Go), nalaman ko ang UPOU through her. Si Ms. Sharon (Cuneta) nandun din.

SCB: How does your showbiz schedule work with your studies?
SG: Mahirap po talaga. Pero kahit papaano nagbibigay po sila ng consideration. ‘Yun din po ‘yung goal ng university, kung baga parang walang deadline or limit.

SCB: Gaano mo kagustong makatapos ng college?
SG: Gusto ko po talagang mag-regular schooling kaso ang hirap talaga. Sa homeschooling, may time talaga na tatamarin ka kasi pagod na pagod ka from work, kung minsan ipapahinga mo na lang o kaya gusto mo mag-unwind pero sa homeschooling, sarili mo rin ang kakumpitensiya mo.

SCB: Did you ever think of resting from showbiz first to study?
SG: May point na ganun. Sabi ko, “Hala! Paano ko pagsasabayin ‘to?!” Pero sabi ko din, may ibang artista na nakakapasok pa din kahit irregular students sila. Yung schedule ko lang talaga, may mga work abroad kami kaya mahirap po talaga. Tiya-tiyagain ko na lang po.

SCB: You said there were moments that you wanted to quit showbiz to continue your studies. What’s stopping you?
SG: Performing in front of a huge crowd is my passion. ‘Yun talaga ‘yung pinapangarap ko, iba talaga ‘yung feeling pag nasa stage ka. Lahat ng inhibitions ko nawawala. Noon nahihiya pa akong gumalaw, mag perform. Pero ngayon, all out na. (laughs) Doon po talaga ako nage-enjoy. Doon ko nae-express ‘yung sarili ko. Kumbaga freedom ko ‘yun, ang mag-perform sa stage.

SCB: Were there not similar outlets for you when you were in school? Like extra-curricular activities?
SG: Meron naman po kapag may mga programs. Pero syempre hiya-hiya ka pa nun eh. ‘Yun pa ‘yung adolescence stage. (laughs) Eh ngayon, go! Go nang go! (laughs)

SCB: You’re life has been a consistent juggling of work schedules and studies…
SG: Umabot po ako ng second year highschool. ‘Yun nga po mahirap silang pagsabayin, maraming kang mga absent, tapos nale-late sa first subject (laughs). Ayoko talaga basta Math. (laughs) Kailangan talaga eventually I had to give up my regular schooling kahit na mahal ko ang UST at ‘yung mga kaklase ko. Hindi ko na natapos ‘yung third year ko. Nag Angelicum College na lang po ako, home study.

SCB: Mahirap ba na desisyon yun?
SG: Opo, iniyakan ko. Kasi nga love ko ‘yung mga kaklase ko. At saka ‘yung nasa UST ka na, maaalis ka pa. Kasi ‘yung panganay namin, UST rin sya. At saka si mommy, graduate siya ng Economics dun. Gusto ko sanang mag Mass Communication sa UST din.

SCB: You seem to love school. How were you as a student?
SG: Average lang. (laughs) Pagka nag-aaral nang mabuti, pumapasa, nakaka-perfect pa. Pero pagka hindi, hindi talaga, zero talaga. (laughs) Kapag tinamad naman, kapag may lakad nga mga friends, gimik nung high school. Pero hindi naman ako nag cut ng class.

SCB: What do you miss most about regular school?
SG: The bonding with my classmates, ‘yung friendship na nabubuo, at saka iba kasi ‘yung may teacher na nage-explain sa’yo. Pag may tanong ka, may matatanungan kang kaklase, patulong naman sa ganito, ganyan. Hindi katulad sa bahay, mahirap talaga. Humanap naman kami ng tutor para matulunganako sa mga assignments, sa dami kasi hindi ko talaga kakayanin.

SCB: You are earning, you are popular, but why do you think education is important?
SG: For the simple reason na hindi forever ang fame, itong career ko sa show business, malalaos at malalaos din ako.

SCB: Hindi pa, bata ka pa eh.
SG: Sana nga matagal pa ‘yun. (laughs) Saka iba din ‘yung dignity na makukuha mo kapag may degree, may maipagmamalaki ka na may natapos ka, ‘yung respect na makukuha mo.

SCB: Self-esteem?
SG: Opo, ‘yun po. Sakto!

SCB: At what age did you start joining contests?
SG: Six years old, dream ko na po talagang magperform. Si Michael Jackson na ang idol ko, pinapanood ko ‘yung mga music videos niya.

SCB: But like Michael Jackson, did you feel you lost part of your childhood?
SG: May ganun. Nung bata pa po ako, gusto kong magbakasyon sa probinsiya kasama ‘yung mga kapatid at pinsan. Pero kailangan kong umuwi sa Manila para mag audition. Natatandaan ko ‘yun pero worth it naman lahat. Kaya sobrang idol ko si MJ kasi parang nakakarelate ako sa kanya, nawala daw ang childhood niya.

SCB: Do you feel that you had a normal childhood?
SG: Siyempre, merong time na nasa-sad ka kapag nagkayayaan ‘yung mga friends mo. Kahit ngayon, nagkayayaan sila Billy (Crawford), punta daw Eastwood. Sad ka rin, pero may trabaho akong kailangan gawin, responsibilidad ko ito, at napaka-suwerte ko na meron akong ganitong trabaho. Iniisip ko na lang na there’s always a next time, at mage-enjoy ako ng bonggang-bongga (laughs). Next time na lang (laughs)!

SCB: There was a point you stopped high school because of financial problems?
SG: Opo. At saka ‘yung sister ko po kailangan siyang operahan. At saka wala na kaming pang tuition. That was the time I joined Star for a Night.

SCB: Naisip mo ba na magiging ganito ka kasikat?
SG: Hindi po talaga. Siguro nung bata ako naisip ko. (laughs) Pero nung natatalo na ako, hindi na ako natatanggap sa mga auditions, may naririnig ka nang lait sa ibang tao, may star quality ba ‘to? ‘Yung ganun. Dun ko naisip na huwag na lang kaya. Tapos, ‘yun nga, kaya ko ginawa yung Star for a Night dahil sa pera. Dahil kailangan. Hindi ko po inaasahan na aabot ako sa grand finals at ako ang magiging grand champion. Kasi ang gagaling ng mga kalaban ko.

SCB: What would have happened kung hindi ka nanalo?
SG: Naku! (laughs) Baka nasa sidewalk kami. (laughs) Kumakanta-kanta, nagbubulag- bulagan na lang ako. (laughs) Magiging mahirap talaga. Hindi ko ma-imagine.

SCB: Pero what made you step up? Parang ako ang gagawa ng paraan. Kasi ang bata mo pa, naisip mo nang gawin ‘yun?
SG: Siyempre kapag nararanasan mo na ‘yung hirap. Pag gutom na gutom ka na, nakikita mo na nahihirapan na yung mga magulang mo, ‘yun na ‘yun. Gagawa ka talaga ng paraan.

SCB: Kasi ‘yung ibang bata, hindi rin maiisip yung ginawa mo…
SG: Kung may kakayahan ka naman kasing tumulong...

SCB: ‘Yung mga time na sumasali ka sa mga singing contests, tapos natatalo ka, anong feeling mo?
SG: Na siguro hindi nga talaga ako magaling. May dumating din kasi na point na masyado kong dina-down ‘yung sarili ko na parang hanggang ngayon nadala ko rin ‘yun. Ang hirap nang tanggalin nung pagiging negative thinker. Hindi ko na kaya ‘to, ganyan. Sa tulong ng pamilya, ng mga supporters, at fans, siyempre, unti-unti pong bumabalik ‘yung enthusiasm and optimism nung bata ako.

SCB: Was it difficult for you growing up and working?
SG: Dumating po ‘yung time na parang nanawa ako, ‘yung parang ayoko na, kasi parang audition ako nang audition, sali ako nang sali ng competitions pero parang walang nangyayari, hindi naman ako sumisikat.

SCB: Paano si Sarah sa bahay kapag walang camera?
SG: Naku tinataboy na ako sa kakulitan ko at kaingayan ko sa bahay. Siyempre kanta ako nang kanta, birit dito, birit doon. ‘Yung mga kapatid ko, sasabihin nila, ang ingay-ingay ko daw. (laughs) Kahit gabi na, kailangan mo din kasing mag practice. Makulit, kengkoy ako sa bahay. Wala pa itong nakikita niyong ganito, pigil pa ‘yan! (laughs)

SCB: Nung bata ka, humaharap ka din ba sa salamin at kumakanta?
SG: Favorite ko ‘yang salamin - hanggang ngayon (laughs). Best friend ko ‘yung salamin. Lagi ko siyang kinakausap (laughs). Totoo po ‘yun, umaarte ka sa harap ng salamin, nagme-make-up, kinukuha ko ‘yung lipstick ng mommy ko. ‘Yung mommy ko kasi noon nagtitinda ng damit sa Zurbaran. Kinukuha ko ‘yung mga high heels, umaarte-arte ako sa bahay.

SCB: Napapagalitan ka ba pag ginagawa mo ‘yun?
SG: Oo, siyempre pag nagagasgas (laughs). Pero nung si mommy wala na po siyang magawa, hinayaan na lang niya sa akin ‘yung mga sapatos!

SCB: Can you describe yung experience mo nung una kang nanalo sa isang contest?
SG: Si daddy po PLDT lineman siya noon. Yearly meron silang singing contest, sumasali ako. Tuwing Pasko ‘yun, sa AFP Theater. ‘Yun ang natatandaan ko pong unang panalo ko.

SCB: What was your piece?
SG: Shirley Bassey song, The Greatest Performance of my Life (sings). Pinapakanta sa akin nila mommy yung malalaki ang boses. Hindi po talaga ako na-train na belter talaga, mga mala Regine Velasquez songs. Eto na po nung pumasok na ako sa ASAP, diyan na ako na-obligang bumirit-birit. Pero hindi po ako ‘yung mabirit na bata.

SCB: How were you trained?
SG: Every morning nagpa-practice kami ni daddy. Sinubukan din naming ‘yung sa drum. Pero sayang ang tubig. (laughs) Sayang ang tubig kaya hindi na nasundan ‘yun. Galing kay Ms. Reg (Regine Velasquez) ‘yun.

SCB: But did you have formal training later on?
SG: Nag-enroll po ako sa Center for Pop. Pero hindi nga po continuous kasi mahirap financially.

SCB: That time, ang goal mo ba was to become an international singer?
SG: Hindi naman po international singer (laughs). Pero actually, gusto ko maging katulad talaga ni Michael Jackson. ‘Yun talaga, ‘yung influence niya sa maraming tao kung paano niya nai-inspire at nata-touch ‘yung life nung people. ‘Yung grabe, naiiyak ‘yung mga tao ‘pag nagpe-perform siya, ganun ‘yung gusto kong maramdaman ng tao pag nagpeperform ako.

SCB: What is your favorite Michael Jackson song then?
SG: “Heal the World”. Recently ko lang naiintindihan ‘yung meaning ng kanta. ‘Yung “Man in the Mirror” talagang maiiyak ka ‘pag pinapakinggan mo.

SCB: Are you shy? Kasi kapag sa TV you look like you’re shy?
SG: Talaga po?

SCB: Pero class clown ka raw nung high school?
SG: Saan niyo po nabasa ‘yan? (laughs)

SCB: I did my research. Where did you get that, parang despite the hardships, kaya mo siyang itawa?
SG: Siguro sa daddy ko po. Kasi si daddy cool lang. Kahit na may mabigat na na problema, cool lang siya. Hindi siya ‘yung, ano ba ‘to, ‘yung buhay ko ganyan. Si mommy ‘yung medyo natataranta. Pero si daddy cool lang siya. At saka joker si daddy. Kahit na corny ‘yung mga punch lines niya, na-adopt ko na rin, ‘yung pagiging corny. (laughs)

SARAH GROWS UP
SCB: Maraming young celebrities ngayon na puro outreach, foundations, may ganun ka rin ba? Do you have any advocacies?
SG: Darating din siguro po ako sa point na ganun, ‘yung magiging involved. Kay mommy kasi, ayaw niya nung i-publicize pa ‘yung ganun. Pero siyempre iba ‘yung feeling na nandun ka at ikaw mismo ang gumagawa. Pero hindi kailanganng may camera. Siguro one of these days po mae-experience ko ‘yung personally nandun ka para tumulong.

SCB: Kailan nagiging disadvantage yung pagiging celebrity mo?
SG: Paano ba… May time kasi na parang, out-of-the-blue gusto mo lang halimbawang kumain sa isang lugar, kain tayo dito, ‘yung hindi big deal kung normal kang tao, kung gagawin mo ito o ganyan. ‘Yung gusto mong lumabas na nakasando lang, or walang bra. (laughs) Di ba? ‘Yung walang kayos-ayos. Hindi tulad ngayon, obligado kang magdamit ng ganito, mag makeup ng konti, mag blower. Lalo na ngayon, endorser ka ng shampoo (laughs).

SCB: What’s the most hurtful rumor that you’ve heard about you?
SG: Siguro ‘yung hindi daw ako pinapakain ng mommy ko. Basta kapag family ko naiintriga, talagang nakaka-insulto. Masyado na daw overprotective ang nanay ko, parang hindi na daw ako pinapakain. Kinalimutan ko na ‘yung iba kasi hindi ko na rin iniintindi kasi, hello, hindi totoo. Tinatawanan ko na lang.

SCB: How do you respond to rumors?
SG: Isang beses lang po ako nagsalita. Tigilan na, nasasaktan na ako kasi siyempre mommy ko ‘yun. Pamilya ko ‘yun. Tama na, tigilan na.

SCB: What are the things na gusto mong gawin na hindi work related?
SG: Hiking (laughs). Camping, ganyan. Kahit saan na maganda. Gusto ko sana sa US, ‘yung Seattle, ‘yung location ng Twilight. Basta maiba lang ‘yung environment ko. Gusto ko mag-travel mag-isa, pero hindi ko alam kung kakayanin ko po ‘yun. Napaka-dependent ko pa po sa parents ko.

SCB: How do you handle fame?
SG: ‘Yung mga flaws ko, kapag nagpe-perform ako, ‘yung mga mali ko. Saka siyempre, ‘yung guidance din ng parents ko at ng family ko. Wala naman po talaga sa amin ‘yung parang lalaki ‘yung ulo, ‘yung mayabang, kasi nakita ko ‘yun sa mga magulang ko.

SCB: Do you ever get tired of hearing your own songs?
SG: Hindi naman. Pagka siguro may kasama lang akong ibang artists tapos naririnig ko ‘yung sarili ko, dun ako nahihiya. Hindi ko ma-explain. Basta nahihiya lang ako, nadidiyahe lang ako. Kunwari, may concert ako, tapos magkakasama kami, sila Billy (Crawford), sila Mark (Bautista), tapos cast party. Tapos kakanta ako ng “To Love You More” sa finale. Tapos, magdi-dinner kami, ‘yun pa rin ang tumutugtog. Siyempre, nahihiya na talaga ako, pinapapatay ko muna. Pero hindi naman ako nagsasawa sa mga kanta ko.

SCB: Do you also compose?
SG: Hindi pa, pero sinusubukan ko. ‘Yung mga hurts mo, mga hinanakit mo. Saka na kapag puwede ko na sabihin! (laughs)

SCB: Bakit hindi puwede sabihin?
SG: Ewan ko (laughs)! Siguro hindi pa ito ang right time para ilabas ko lahat.

SCB: Is it a conscious decision not to have a boyfriend yet?
SG: Medyo (laughs). Mag-aral daw muna at career muna. Pero hindi naman ako pinagbabawalan ni Mommy na makipag-kaibigan. Pero ligaw? Puwede na ba mommy na may manligaw (laughs)?

SCB: Do you have any regrets?
SG: Siguro may mga performance na parang feeling mo may mas maibibigay ka pang mas magaling, na hindi mo naman magawa kasi parang ang daming humaharang, like ‘yung kaba. Pero lahat ng pinagdaanan ko, lahat ng mga pagsubok, no regrets. They made me who I am.

SCB: Paano ka magalit? Nagagalit ka ba?
SG: Minsan lang ako magalit, pero grabe (laughs). Parang leon ako magalit. ‘Yun ang napansin ko sa akin. Mabait na kung mabait, pero once na napuno...ayun (laughs). Minsan lang naman ako magalit eh. Ano ba nakapagpapagalit sa akin, Mommy? Siguro kapag sa tingin ko ‘yung performance ko kulang, nagagalit ako sa sarili ko. ‘Yun ang lagi kong kaaway, sarili ko. Paranoid ako, perfectionist na wala sa lugar. Psychological na rin kasi minsan iniisip mo na magkakamali ka kaagad, tapos nagkakamali ka nga. Pero unti-unti ko nang tinatanggal ‘yun.

SCB: What’s the most painful experienceyou’ve gone through?
SG: Nung nagkapatong-patong ‘yung trabaho. Merong soap opera, merong provincial shows, tapos may major concert ka sa Araneta Coliseum, may recording ka. Nag-stop na lang ‘yung boses ko. Parang feeling ko, wala na, hindi na ako makakakanta. Minsan naiiyak na lang ako sa stage kasi alam kong meron pa akong maibibigay pero hindi ko maibigay.

SCB: What did you learn from that experience?
SG: Na hindi mo magagawa ng sabay-sabay. Kaya takot talaga ako mag-soap opera kasi talagang ang taping talaga...

SCB: How do you prepare before a concert?
SG: I pray. Minsan talaga, kahit anong prepare mo, pero kapag hindi mo inoffer kay Lord, masisira din at hindi rin magiging maganda ‘yung performance mo. Kailangan mo talagang unahin si Lord. May ganun kasi, dahil sa taranta mo, ang dami-daming pinapagawa sa iyo, nakakalimutan mo, masyado kang focused sa trabaho mo. Pero dapat lagi mong inuuna si Lord. Kinakabahan pa rin ako before a performance.

SCB: What advice would you give to young people, especially aspiring singers?
SG: Kapag may pagkakataon sila na matupad ‘yung pangarap nila, huwag nilang palalagpasin. Ang dami kong pinagdaanan na akala ko hindi ko na mararating itong pangarap ko na ito kasi maraming failures, rejections, pero pagsubok lang ‘yun ni Lord. Kung gaano mo kamahal ‘yung pangarap mo, it will make you stronger. Mas magiging eager ka na makamit ‘yung pangarap mo.

Have faith in the talent that God has given you and have faith in yourself. Iba din kapag may pinag-aralan ka at may tinapos na kurso. At huwag kang padadala sa mundo. This is a business na minsan sasabihan ka na kailangan gawin mo ito, suotin ito, para mapansin ka. Kung magpapadala ka, wala.

This is by far the most interesting and beautiful interview she had in 6 years. Grabe tulo luha ko nung mabasa ko to... kahit ang haba masarap basahin. It's seldom to see an artist like her. She's not only talented, but she's full of heart-- a selfless daughter and sister to her siblings. Wala lang.. emo mode lang... In this interview, Sarah showed both her strengths and weaknesses. Honest, spontaneous and very candid in answering all the questions. Ang sarap niyang interviewhin sa totoo lang Nakaka-proud maging popster kung isang Sarah Geronimo ang hinahangaan mo
