PBB Teens 4 Winner Myrtle Sarrosa, The Face Of Megasoft's Sisters Feminine Napkins, Now Doing Two New Movies With Regal Entertainment

MYRTLE SARROSA started as a cosplayer who became the big winner of PBB Teens 4 in 2012. A singer, songwriter, host and actress, she juggled showbiz and her studies and finally graduated cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in broadcast communications from UP.

“It wasn’t easy,” she says. “It took me six years before I finally graduated. There were times when I doubted myself and just wanted to give up. But with the help of God, my family, my professors and workmates, I finally graduated and it’s all worth it.”

She has since appeared in various TV shows like “Forevermore”, “Ang Probinsyano”, “Super D”, “Your Face Sounds Familiar” and the latest was in “La Luna Sangre” where she played a vampire. Isn’t she getting impatient with the slow progress of her career in showbiz?

“Before, I was really wondering bakit mabagal ang takbo ng career ko. But I realized it’s not good for me to compare myself with other PBB winners na sumikat agad, like Kim Chiu, kasi iba-iba ang paths namin. I think may ibang plans si God para sa akin. It’s a matter of proper timing. Right now, I’m happy to be doing two new movies for Regal Entertainment.”

She’s the ambassadress of Megasoft Hygienic Products, makers of Sisters, and she just renewed her contract with them for two years. During her first year as endorser, they visited 33 schools all over the country to give recognition to outstanding teachers, students and to lecture about menstrual hygiene awareness. Why did they choose Myrtle to be the face of Sisters Feminine Napkins?

“Myrtle is the ideal role model for the youth kasi kahit she’s busy with showbiz work, yet she really tried hard to get a college degree,” says Aileen Choi Go, Megasoft VP for Marketing. “Magkasama kami in visiting schools around the country and she’s always professional. Masaya siyang kasama kahit 3 AM ang flight namin. I see her studying sa plane and sa hotel just to achieve her goal of graduating with honors. She’s very articulate and easily connects with the students kapag nagsasalita siya. She can really inspire young people to value the importance of education.”

Myrtle’s last boyfriend was Brian Llamanzares, son of Sen. Grace Poe. Has she found a new love since they broke up? “Marami namang kumakatok sa pinto namin, non-showbiz, and I entertain them, pero wala pa akong sinasagot. Right now, aside from the movies I’m doing, I’m also busy hosting a show on new animes on Hero TV. I really want to focus on my career muna and someday be a broadcast journalist.”

Myrtle will be in Cebu on September 16, 10 AM, at the Megasoft Warehouse in Mandaue City, to be shown on Facebook Live, then she’ll be at Gaisano Grand Dumanjug Mall at 4 PM and Gaisano Grand Moalboal at 6PM with co-endorser for Cherub, Kristoff Garcia, who’ll be in Puerto Princesa on September 26 and Isetan Recto Manila on September 29.
