From being a teen star to a drama actress and now, a visual artist, Heart knows a thing or two about changing up herself. And since showbiz figures becoming politicians is quite commonplace in our country, Heart running for office wouldn’t be the most outrageous thing you’d hear these days.
But we digress. Heart tells Bandera that she doesn’t see herself in politics and is more than happy with the influence she has right now. “Kaya ako, kung tinatanong nila sa akin, ‘gusto mo ba pumasok sa pulitika?’ ang lagi kong sinasabi, hindi kasi para sa akin ang politics, nandoon na ako sa kumbaga may position of influence na ako kung saan ako naroon ngayon (When they ask me if I want to enter politics, I always that politics isn’t for me, I am already in a position of influence right now).”
Furthermore, she’s more than happy to be of help given the influence she has right now. “Kumbaga, bilang artista, nakikita ka ng mga tao. Mayroon ka nang, kahit paano mga followers na sumusuporta sa mga ginagawa mo. Para sa isang normal na tao, puwede ka ring tumulong sa ibang tao (As an actress, people already recognize you. You already have followers who support what you do. For normal person, you are already in a position where you can help other people,)” Heart says.
