Kathryn Bernardo on finishing school, launching her own book, new movie

MANILA, Philippines – She turned 20 years old last March 26 but Kathryn Bernardo is still the ultimate teen queen to her many fans. As a gift to her followers, she's recently launched her book Everyday Kath: Kathryn Bernardo's 365 Ways to be a Teen Queen.

During an interview with reporters at the book signing at Eastwood Sunday, April 10, Kathryn said now that she is an adult, she has learned to be stronger and to stand on her own two feet.  

"Siguro 'yung pagiging strong sa lahat, kasi dati fragile ako. Pero because of all the experiences…I think I’ve grown up," she said. (I guess being strong because before, I was so fragile. But because of all the experiences...I think I've grown up.) She added that her family has also kept her grounded, especially during more challenging times. 

Kathryn also shared some details about her new movie with Daniel Padilla. Last week, it was announced that they will be doing the movie set in Spain under the direction of Olivia Lamasan. 

"The final details, wala pa. [Pero] yung picture, 90% i-shoot namin sa Barcelona," Kathryn said. (There's no details yet. But will shoot 90% of the movie in Barcelona.)

She also said that she is spending as much time as she can now with her family and friends since she and Daniel will be away for around 3 weeks to do the movie.

Currently studying at Enderun College, Kathrn is working hard to finish school. 

"Kino-continue ko talaga siya. Mahirap pero nandiyan yung mama ko, para siya magpupush talaga sa akin and Enderun naman is – supportive sila. It’s team work between me and Enderun para matapos ng school," she said.

(I'm continuing it. It's hard, but my mama is there to push me and Enderun is very supportive. It's team work between me and Enderun to help me finish school.)

As for her book Everyday Kath, Kath has written about life lessons she's picked up given her experiences. It contains chapters on fashion and beauty, plus she shares a few details about her personal life, too.

"I know growing up isn't always easy, which is why I've put together this book to help you find your sparkle and be your best, happiest self! It's packed with tons of honest advice, and fun anecdotes, and it's my special way of saying goodbye to my teen years while looking forward to the exciting years ahead with all of you," wrote Kathryn in the introduction. 

When asked about her personal sense of style during the book launch, Kathryn said she sticks to the classic and timeless. She did admit it was a struggle to find her style, as being in showbiz does require an element of change and transformation.

"Yes [there's a struggle] because may chapter tayo sa buhay na di mo alam kung anong bagay sa iyo, 'yung – sa mga cuts, yung sa mga colors, dumaan ako sa stumble na iyon and I’m very thankful sa mga stylists ko, glam team ko..." she said. 

(Yes [there's a struggle] because people do go through phases where you don't know if things suit you – cuts, the colors, I stumbled through that and I'm very thankful to my stylists, my glam team for their help.)

Kathryn joins a growing number of celebrities who recently launched their own books, including Heart Evangelista, photographer BJ Pascual, Solenn Heussaff and Georgina Wilson, Liz Uy, and Annabelle Rama.  – Rappler.com
