Isabelle Daza Guest In Children'S Show Tackling Racial Discrimination

ISABELLE DAZA had a great time as the lone guest in a special episode of “Tropang Pochi” to be shown tomorrow, Saturday, at 8:30 AM on GMA-7. She plays the cousin of Bianca Umali, one of the show’s regular hosts. “I had a great time working with these very talented kids,” she says. “It’s very relaxing to be in their company at puro sila magaling.”

The episode tomorrow tackles the delicate issue of racial discrimination. Upon Julian Trono’s invitation, a girl with dark skin and curly hair named Jessica visits the Potchi House. Sabrina makes fun of her physical appearance and Lenlen Frias calls her Ate Maitim. With the help of Isabelle, the kids eventually learn how to accept other people despite their skin color and appearance. The kids also go to Dangwa to buy cheap but beautiful flowers for Bianca’s grandma. They also try various Pinoy street games like patintero and tumbang preso and eat streetfood like balut. Share the fun experiences and learn new values in “Tropang Potchi”, the toprating children’s show on Saturdays at 8:30AM.
