Back in High School, I would often see the Pantene commercial with this morena girl, just having lots of fun during her shoot. Fast forward to present day, Bianca Gonzalez is an editor, model, columnist, TV host, blogger and recently, an author to her book, Paano Ba To?! (How to Survive Growing Up). Published by One Mega Group Inc., this book about life lessons and success, and even failure stories is a manual for every young (and not so young) Pinays.
Last November 30, I was lucky enough to attend her book signing at the National Book Store, Trinoma. Fans lined up that afternoon to buy her book and meet Bianca personally. The fan in me could not resist having my copy signed and snapping a photo with her.
Paano Ba 'To?! has 8 sections about Family, Friendship, Love, Career and Money, Failures, Fashion and Beauty, Purpose and Self. I love how this book has sort of a Q&A portion where Bianca shares her insights and answers hard-hitting dilemmas of different teens.
Aside from her opinions on life, she also let other personalities share their stories like Toni Gonzaga, Anne Curtis and Luis Manzano, Ramon Bautista, Tim Yap, Marian Rivera, Rissa Mananquil-Trillo, Atom Araullo and Iza Calzado. Having these celebrities and their stories will make you feel inspired that they too, are normal people like you and me.
So if you're looking for a perfect gift for teens and young women, Paano Ba 'To?! is perfect as a guide to anything and everything about life and growing up. Get your copy now for only Php245.
