Frankie Pangilinan, daughter of Megastar Sharon Cuneta and Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan says real beauty is what we choose to show to other people. Third-generation Gutierrez siblings Lorin and Venice say it’s being confident in your skin and that it’s something that shines from within. Jayda Avanzado, the musically-inclined daughter of singers Jessa Zaragoza and Dingdong Avanzado eloquently states that it’s about embracing one’s self and appreciating what you have. Angelina Cruz, Sunshine Cruz’s eldest, says that beauty happens when someone’s happy.
