MANILA – Lauren Young continues to use her social media platforms to express her support for ABS-CBN amid its franchise renewal woes.
On Instagram, Young recalled her humble beginnings as an actress and how her former home network played a role in this.
“I was 11 years old when ABS-CBN gave me a chance. I remember walking into the audition and meeting AJ (Perez) for the first time, we talked for a bit (little did I know I was talking to my first and future love team) then I was called in to share my ‘talent.’ I sang 'Sana' by Nikki Gil from the Coke commercial during that time and did a cheerleading routine for my ‘dance’ part,” she began.
“I was just a little girl from Subic Bay fighting for a dream in the big city -- I had no idea during that time that said dream would eventually come true,” she added.
Young, who is now with GMA-7, said it is the Kapamilya network that “invested and trained me into the actress that I am today and opened the door to so many opportunities.”
For these reasons, Young said she will forever be grateful to ABS-CBN.
“I will forever be grateful to everything that was given to me because of this break and it breaks my heart to see thousands of employees suffer during this time,” she said.
“My heart is with you. Now, more than ever, it’s important to use our voices to fight for what is right! No network wars now, just justice,” she added.
Young stressed the same thing on Twitter, saying she owes her career to ABS-CBN.
