“Back to zero kami. Walang wala na talaga, kahit hanggang ngayon, wala na talaga akong pinagkukunan ng pera,” she shared.

“Na walang permanent dito sa mundo. ‘Wag kang makampante na merong taong gagabay sa ‘yo. Dapat gumawa ka rin ng sarili mo,” she said.
Toni, obviously moved by her story, vowed to give her all the proceeds of the interview.
As of this writing, the video has garnered over 2.5 million views.
