Former “Pinoy Big Brother” winner Anji Salvacion couldn’t hold back her tears during her recent contract signing with ABS-CBN, marking a significant milestone in her journey as an artist.
More than a year after her triumph on the reality show, Salvacion expressed her profound gratitude for securing a network contract with ABS-CBN. The emotional moment was a stark reminder of how far she had come since her humble beginnings.
Salvacion revealed that signing a deal with the Kapamilya network was a dream she had never anticipated. “Actually it’s tears of gratefulness. Kasi looking back where I started, it was very humble. I am so glad to everyone here, to all the people that I’ve worked with, to the bosses who gave me an opportunity to showcase me,” she explained.
The young talent acknowledged the unwavering support of her family throughout her journey, especially during her auditions for various ABS-CBN programs that eventually led her to “PBB.” She recognized the sacrifices they made, saying, “I am so blessed and I am so lucky to have my family who really supported me. Talagang tinawid talaga nila ako papuntang Surigao. I owe everything to them.”
Describing her career journey as memorable and full of sunshine, Salvacion acknowledged the challenges that come with the industry. Yet, she remained steadfast in her belief that she was placed in this path for a reason. “I know that God has a purpose in my life. Hindi ako basta-basta ilalagay dito kung wala akong io-offer. I am just so grateful kasi there’s a lot of people who guided me, my managers, the bosses who trust me. It’s just so amazing na they see this potential in me. They made me realize that I can go further.”
Salvacion shared a valuable lesson she has learned in the entertainment industry – the significance of treating everyone with kindness. She emphasized that talent alone is not enough; hard work and a compassionate heart are equally important. “Everybody has been telling me this and I’ve been hearing it from everyone. Masasabi ko din ito sa mga gusto din mag showbiz to always be kind. ‘Yun talaga ang parating sinasabi. Na kahit anong talent ang meron ka, kapag wala kang hard work, wala kang puso, wala kang kindness, hindi mo mararating kung saan mo gustong pumunta.”
Currently, Salvacion is actively working on the ABS-CBN series “Linlang,” which stars renowned artists such as Kim Chiu, Paulo Avelino, Maricel Soriano, and more.
As Anjie Salvacion embarks on this new chapter with ABS-CBN, her emotional contract signing serves as a powerful testament to the determination, gratitude, and kindness that have guided her path in the entertainment industry.
