CEBU, Philippines — At 15 years old, Shanaia Gomez’s greatest fear is having regrets.
Now an up-and-coming GMA Artist Center talent, this half-Cebuana was discovered through a Philippine Canadian Charitable Foundation (PCCF) pageant in a GMA Pinoy Fiesta event that celebrates the Filipino community in Canada.
Shanaia was hailed Miss Philippines Canada 2016 first-runner up and has been training under GMA since, appearing in various commercials, the latest being a Maggi Sinigang ad with Ian Veneracion. After the TVC, she named her puppy “Maggi” with a “Maggi Sinigangi” nickname.
