“To my firstborn, @loringabriella Today, you turn 18 years old. These are exciting times for you: just graduated from high school, going to college, starting your career with @vivaartistsagency, the opportunities coming your way are endless.
“Don’t be in such a hurry to grow up. Savour your youth. Yes, you’re officially an adult, but that definition means being responsible with all aspects of your life.
“Be a leader, not a follower. Chase your dreams, travel the world, pursue your goal of taking up law, be a good girl – HUWAG MUNA MAG BOYFRIEND (gosh, I sound like my mom). And if you decide to have one 10 years from now, CHOOSE WISELY. Be with someone who respects you and is GOD FEARING. Don’t just follow your heart Lorin, use your brain.
“Choose to be kind and use your platform to be an inspiration to others. HAPPY 18!!!! Your family, @venicebektas and I will always be here for you throughout every facet of your life. We love you so much!! Xx”
