Kapamilya actor Joshua Garcia gets real about his struggles during the pandemic, especially about his finances.
On an exclusive interview with Enchong Dee on his Youtube account, Joshua talks about the things that he had thought of the moment that ABS CBN lost its franchise to operate.
According to the actor, as a bread winner, he was worried for the sake of his family.
“Hindi ako pumunta sa mga rally-rally, pero 100 percent nakasuporta ako.
“Mine-mesage ko pa sina Tita Cory na nasa likod lang nila ako,” he said.
He also admitted that he had thought of transferring networks, but he did not try on bridging over other company.
“Hindi ko magawa. Ibang relationship ang na-build ko with ABS, e.
“Parang naging pamilya ko sila. Parang hindi ko kayang iwan.
“Mananatili yung loyalty [ko] nasa ABS.”
Continued the actor, “Siguro nadala lang ako dahil magsasara na yung ABS, kasi pandemic pa, kailangan kong kumita ng pera para sa pamilya ko.
“Eventually, naging okay din lahat, e. I mean, unti-unti.”
But he did not let his self be drowned with too much worries and start venturing on other things such as pursuing his studies.
“Especially ako yung breadwinner, di ba? So, sa ‘kin umaasa yung family ko.
“So, tinuloy ko yung pag-aaral. Nag-aaral ako sa SISFU, (Southville International School Affiliated with Foreign Universities)
SISFU is a private university in Las Pinas, where other celebrities like Mika Dela Cruz and Julia Montes go as well.
The actor is now taking Bachelor of Science in Etrepreneurship.
“Dumaan lang talaga sa isip ko na gusto kong lumipat.
“Pero feeling ko, pinapa-realize sa ‘kin na marami pa akong pwedeng gawin, na pwede kong pagkunan ng income.
“Kasi yun lang naman ang worry sa akin, e, yung income, e.”
