“They helped me grow from who I was to who I am right now,” Sparkle GMA artist and Sisters brand ambassador Myrtle Sarrosa expressed gratitude to Megasoft Vice-President of Sales and Marketing Aileen Choi-Go during her recently held contract renewal media conference. She raved about how the company gave her its full trust and never imposed restrictions on her creative line of work. In fact, Myrtle said, Aileen acts like her big sister. This explains their terms of endearment for each other – Big Sis and Little Sis.
In a lengthy answer that sounded like a thank you speech, Myrtle happily shared, “To be honest, sobrang grateful ko kay Big Sis kasi in terms of career, sobrang dami na nangyari sa career ko since 2016 pero despite all those transitions – nag-start ako na I was back in college, tapos kahit nung nag-graduate na ako, when I was starting out with films, nag-experiment ako ng iba’t ibang roles nag-transition ako sa from nice to fierce to kontrabida, tapos recently naman sobrang daming mga cosplay characters in gaming, nakakatuwa kasi very supportive si Big Sis. Even in my endeavors outside of showbiz, she’s very supportive. Noong nag-put up ako ng sarili kong business na food cart tapos ngayon meron akong video editing na team sinusuportahan din ni Big Sis. Nakakatuwa kasi never ako nilimit ng Sisters.”
For her part, the Megasoft executive also shared her appreciation for Myrtle as an ambassador. She expressed how much she values the kind of friendship they have and the kind of person Myrtle is. Aileen said, “Masasabi ko na kahit si Little Sis is part of showbiz, yung ugali nya hindi pa-showbiz. She’s really very true to herself kaya ang bilis bilis pakisamahan. Actually, everytime na makasama kami sa mga shows, ako yung very proud RM (road manager) sa kanya. Talagang willing ako na okay lang na kahit na sinisipa-sipa ako ng mga tao o nasasabutan ako o whatever. Kasi I really need to protect Little Sis.” She continued to appreciate Myrtle’s journey which Megasoft is a part of.
Sisterly advice on love
Asked if she gives sisterly advice to Myrtle on love life given their closeness and bond, Aileen told Random Republika, “Actually, regarding naman sa personal life, I think she really knows what she wants eh. It is just a matter of finding the right person for her. So, ganon, maybe in a few years, medyo magsasabi na sya na ito na yung boyfriend nya or ito na yung pakakasalan nya. I think sa part na yan it’s better na yung parang maghintay nalang din ng right person. Huwag madaliin. Actually, ayun ‘yung inaadvise namin sa mga kabataan, huwag magmadali sa mga ganyang relationship lalo na ngayon puro na lang tayo Zoom. Minsan iba hitsura sa picture, iba ‘yung hitsura in person or ‘yung mga ugali iba-iba kasi nga mas mahirap yung ganito via Zoom tayo. Much better pa rin talaga nagkakaroon ng interaction.”
The Megasoft executive also added that whoever ends up with Myrtle will be a very lucky guy. She vouched for the Sisters ambassador’s being beautiful inside and out.
Myrtle continues a sisterly bond with Sisters Sanitary Napkins and Pantyliners by renewing her endorsement deal with Megasoft Hygienic Products Inc.
For six years, Myrtle and Sisters have been working hand-in-hand to advocate good education and proper hygiene management.
Myrtle, who graduated cum laude from the University of the Philippines-Diliman, said Sisters has been a great help to reach out to the youth and encourage them to enjoy school.
She recalled, “When I first became Sisters’ endorser, we worked together to rise above and sobrang nakakaproud yung lahat ng naging accomplishments namin sa Sisters and Megasoft within the last six years.
“We have inspired thousands of students, we have helped multiple schools and we have been a part of the movement to which we make school fun and award all the students and teachers for all that they do. Nakakatuwa din having the opportunity na tulungan yung iba’t ibang school sa kanilang facilities and create events para sa kanila to empower them.”
The multi-hyphenated actress-cosplayer-gamer has also become a role model to young females for practicing proper hygiene that is why Megasoft Hygienic Products Inc. continues to trust her as Sisters’ celebrity ambassador.
“My little sister Myrtle embodies Sisters Feminine Care Brand tagline ‘School is cool’ since we started our nationwide campus tour in 2016. She sets the bar of an excellent role model for the young ones to finish their studies amidst challenges and juggling demands of show business,” said Aileen.
Meanwhile, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Sisters’ very successful school tour was put to a halt. However, this did not stop its connection to students as Sisters and Myrtle continue to engage with them online.
“We diverted our face-to-face school tour by joining online schooling activities like seminars and Brigada Eskuwela through “Personal Hygiene Management” segment, where Myrtle shares her ideas on how to take care of themselves when girls start having periods,” mentioned Aileen.
Myrtle, on the other hand, admits to missing the personal interactions with the students, but she is happy that she’s still able to talk to them virtually.
She said, “Sobrang nakaka-miss. During the pandemic, we did mga virtual meetups pero iba pa rin talaga if you see them in person. Lalo na yung excitement nila when we see them on stage and yung happiness nila when we award them. Iba yung feeling talaga ng school tours.”
Soon, Myrtle will be able to meet the young students personally as Megasoft promises to bring back its face-to-face school tours once the COVID-19 restrictions have been loosened.
Aileen said, “We are excited to resume physical events, participate in festivals and school tours nationwide as promised when alert levels will be lifted asap.”
Likewise, she concluded, “Megasoft Hygienic Products Inc. is determined to continuously provide essential hygiene products worth the money of every Filipino.”
