Mara Clara's Kathryn and Julia, Role Models of the Youth

FROM ABS-CBN: With their teleserye-like life stories which honed their wonderful personalities and characters, the modern lead stars of “Mara Clara”, Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Montes, are considered by the youth as role models.

On Twitter, a famous social networking and microblogging website, many Kapamilya viewers, mostly the youth, expressed their strong liking for Kathryn and Julia. Tweets such as “Mara ur so humble, Clara ambaet mo,” “ANG SUPER GANDA NG MARA CLARA! For the win. Ang bait pareho ni Mara at ni Clara,” and “Napanood ko yung The Buzz kung san nag-guest si Mara Clara, nakakaiyak kwento ng buhay nila,” are all over the said site.

In real life, Kathryn finances the education of the child of one their family’s employee. Julia on the other hand continues to stay strong for her hearing and speech impaired mother. Such real scenarios make these two young ladies as young people to look up to.

“Kaya sa mga eksena nila, madrama man o hindi, hindi sila hirap kasi may pinaghuhugutan sila galing sa real experiences nila,” Jerome Pobocan shared, one of the directors of the high-rating series.

On the other hand, “Mara Clara” continues to soar high as it gains supremacy over last Tuesday’s (November 9) programming. Owning the first spot of the top 20 programs nationwide according to Kantar Media, “Mara Clara” earned a score of 28% beating GMA 7’s “Grazilda” which only garnered a national rating of 18.4%.
