Drag Performer, Bartender
Seattle, WA, USA
Born and Race in the beautiful island of Cebu in the Philippines. I immigrated to the U.S. on my early teens to be with Mom, Dad and Big Sister. It’s really hard finding your voice and identity in a place you are not accustomed to growing up, specially for a gay teen from a different country. I’ve faced challenges that almost wanna give up my own life!!! But i have gotten better dealing with them, i know i am strong, beautiful and special no matter what other people say! If i may say so myself, that really the art in drag has saved my life!!! Special thanks to RAJA (Sutan) makeup artist to the stars and my favorite show growing up and still loved America’s Next Top Model, and the winner of Ru Paul’s Drag Race season 3! When i saw her when i was 17 years old on ANTM dress up as Tyra and handing trophies at the Fiercey Awards on the Tyra Banks Show in Drag was the Changing Point of My life!!! I was mesmerize of how beautiful she was and how strong she was for standing in front of people, knowing that it’s going to be televised and will be seen throughout the world in DRAG!!!! And i thought that was so beautiful and so gutsy of her! A few months after seeing her i started picking up those brushes and started painting my own face and peoples faces, I WAS JUST SO INSPIRED THAT I COULDN’T STOP! I WENT TO SCHOOL IN DRAG FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HIGH SCHOOL DURING MY SENIOR YEAR and it felt really good! To all the haters i let them have it. I am so blessed to have the people who loved me and support me, to my family and friends i love them so much!
