ABS-CBN Ball 2019: Jane De Leon Donates The Prize From Her Belo Special Award To Bantay Bata 163
Just like any other super hero, putting the needs of others comes first in the priority list of our new Darna, who donated the proceeds from her Belo Special Award to Bantay Edukasyon
With attendance of the biggest and the brightest stars of today, the ABS-CBN Ball 2019 is a night of revelry, nostalgia, and service. The memorable night was filled with stars who came to support this year's beneficiary—the ABS-CBN Foundation's Bantay Bata 163.
With all the glitz and glamour that filled that night of the stars held in Shangri-La at The Fort, our new Darna, Jane de Leon, stood out and won the "Belo Beauty On The Rise," a special award given by the Belo Medical Group, which she then decided to donate to Bantay Bata’s latest project, Bantay Edukasyon.
“I really want to help Bantay Bata especially Bantay Edukasyon para makatulong talaga na matapos 'yung pag-aaral nila. It’s really important kasi mga bata 'yan eh—nangangarap 'yan. Hindi natin alam kung nasaan 'yung mga magulang nila, at kung ano 'yung mga gusto nilang gawin para sa buhay nila in the future. Mas maganda na maging ehemplo tayo para mas makatulong sa kanila,” she shares with Metro.Style after the event.
Besides being passionate about supporting the Bantay Bata and believing in a young child's hopes and dreams, Jane also promotes mental health awareness by acknowledging those who have anxiety and depression.
Having a heart for the younger generation and truly relating to them in the sense of dreaming and aiming high, she gives her message saying, “First of all, think about yourself and 'wag na 'wag niyong pababayaan 'yung sarili niyo. Importante 'yung pag-aaral, always listen to your parents and don’t forget to pray.” A message she also imbibes in her journey as a role model for the youth.
Now that she started training for her new role as Darna, she’s also learning how to discipline herself in terms of physical training and having a healthy diet, “I workout everyday and eat healthy. I’m not super strict with my diet, and actually, I need to gain weight. So eat, training, and eat.”
Becoming one of the iconic Filipino super heroes comes with a lot of expectations which she’s completely aware of, “Hindi siya biro. For now, kinakabahan pero kailangan ko muna mag-focus with everything.” When asked about doing her own stunts in the movie she confidently shares, “Of course! Tigan natin kung parang Jackie Chan tayo.”
Despite the high pressure of her new role, she
continues to radiate positivity throught her journey as she shares her secret
on staying motivated in her goals, “It’s simple. My family, fans, and God above
