Through MB Life, renowned poet Lang Leav was able to send wonderful praises to the country’s very own phenomenal star Maine Mendoza.
According to Leav, Mendoza will be “a real force in the future.” “She’s so lovely. I think she’s a really strong character, a good role model, and she’s living her life. We made smart, strong women, just to be a role model to the younger generation coming through,” Leav said.
On #TikTokMaineEvent where Mendoza was introduced as one of the stars to hit the new social media platform, we asked for her response to the author’s praises.
Mendoza shared that she’s grateful and happy for the kind words she received from the international best-selling author, given the fact that they haven’t yet meet in person. “Overwhelming kasi kapag meron akong naririnig na ganyan, ‘pag may nagsasabi ng something really good about me lalo na dun sa mga taong hindi ko pa nakikilala, so I’m really looking forward to meet them,” Mendoza told MB Life.
“Super thankful lang ako kasi kahit hindi ko pa sila kakilala, ganun na kaganda ‘yung tingin nila sa akin. I mean, not physically, pero ‘yung sobrang nakaka-overwhelm lang for me ‘yung mga ganung bagay so I appreciate it so much,” she continued.
Leav is one of Mendoza’s favorite authors that she even quoted the writer in some of her social media posts. This got the attention of “Love Looks Pretty on You” author and even dedicated a poem for Mendoza in her book “The Universe of Us” that was released in 2016.
“I haven’t met Lang, pero I want to personally thank her. So Lang thank you very much for the very kind words,” Mendoza ended.
