To say that she was overwhelmed was an understatement when asked how she felt after being chosen to carry the Vivo brand. “[I am happy] that [Vivo] trusted me,” she gushes in a brief interview conducted during a photo shoot organized by Vivo.

Maris Racal

Maris Racal is a Pinoy Big Brother All In alumna and placed second to the season’s Big Winner.
