Sanya remains hopeful amidst pandemic


    Sanya Lopez gave herself one of the most beautiful gifts for her 24th birthday last month.

    The actress has moved to her new home. She recently posted a photo of her holding a balloon in her house’s second floor balcony.

    The house is a product of hard work, proof of Sanya’s dedication to her craft. The “Encantadia” star is also inspiring fans to work hard on reaching their dreams. And in the midst of the pandemic, she is finding positive things to focus on. Sanya is happy with each positive news about her home province, Bulacan, including the one that San Miguel Corporation will soon build – a world-class airport at Bulakan, Bulacan.

    The actress, who was born in Malolos, is proud that the province is going to be the site of the new airport. She knows that the airport will provide hope for her province-mates who have lost their jobs and whose businesses were affected by the pandemic.

    To be built by San Miguel Corporation, the New Manila International Airport can accommodate 100 million passengers every year, has four runways with a provision for two more and a seamless transport system. Over a million direct and indirect jobs will be created, new businesses will develop, and the tourism industry will get a shot in the arm.

    “Malaking bagay ang magagawa ng San Miguel sa aking mga kababayan sa Bulacan. It will not only generate jobs for my kababayan kundi marami rin ang papasok na turista at businesses pa sa aming lugar,” said Sanya.

    She’s asking Filipinos not to lose hope and keep following health protocols to avoid contacting the dreaded illness.

    “Ang message ko sa aking mga kababayan sa Bulacan ay maging maingat lagi sa sarili.

    Follow safety protocols. Wear mask and face shields. Let’s wash our hands regularly. And practice social distancing. Tatlo lang naman yon na ating tatandaan para makaiwas tayo sa Covid. And let’s not lose hope. Pag-aralan nating mag-cope sa ganitong crisis. Hindi naman tayo bibigyan ng problema na hindi natin kaya,” she said. “Likas naman sa ating mga Bulakenyo ang pagiging matulungin kaya magtulungan tayo ang keep the Bayanihan spirit within us. Darating ang panahon at malalagpasan din natin ito sa awa ng Diyos.”

    Sanya said she is growing accustomed to the new normal. “Hindi pa rin ako gaanong nakakalabas dahil puro work from home lang ang ginagawa ko na binibigay sa akin ng GMA and endorsements. If I may count it mga three times lang akong nakalabas, ‘yung nagtaping ako for ‘Wish Ko Lang’ and isa pang show.”

    So she is optimistic that once the pandemic has passed, everything will be back to normal and will be better for her hometown and the country.

    “Alam kong lilipas din itong crisis natin at babalik din sa normal ang lahat. Mabibisita ko pa rin yung mga lugar na ‘di ko pa napupuntahan,” said Sanya, who considers Japan, Boracay, and Canada as some of the best places she’s been to so far.

    And who knows, one of her upcoming flights could be at the world-class airport in Bulacan.
