Mikee Quintos revealed a point in her career when she felt insecure and undeserving of the love and attention from her fans.
In an exclusive interview of Quintos with the GMA Network, she shared that it was hard for her to transition from being an ordinary person into celebrity status.
“I signed with GMA around 2015. So ever since, ‘yong growth ko as an artist, ‘yong transition from being a normal person to eventually makikilala ka ng mga tao, at first nahirapan akong tanggapin ‘yon.
“Nagkaroon ako ng crisis. Naramdaman ko na parang hindi ko deserved ‘yong binibigay nilang love and attention. I had this really big insecurity that it’s hard for me to take compliments,” she said.
The 23-year-old Kapuso star said that despite feeling insecure, she motivates herself to work harder for the sake of her fans.
“Whatever it was that I was doing at that point in my life, I felt like it wasn’t enough.
“I wanted to do more, to make things better. ‘Ganyan, they’re giving this love, Mikee, kailangan mo mag-work harder para ibalik ‘yan sa kanila, para maramdaman nilang grateful ka.’ Ganun ‘yong laging nasa isip ko.”
