“I have deep gratitude for the Filipinos because they are the ones who know who I really am,” she said. “I don’t know what the problem is because for me, there is no problem with that. So now I ask for forgiveness from those who don’t understand. And those who cannot accept. I apologize, I understand you.”
“To those who could accept, and could accept me, thank you very, very much.” she added. “I just want to say to all of you that I feel very light – that I can leave the house knowing I am not hiding anything. … I love myself, that’s why I’m able to do this.”
