Kim Chiu: ‘I was a dreamer from Cebu with two impossible goals’


As she marked her 15th year since planting her roots in showbiz, Kim Chiu looked back on her life before her big dreams were finally a reality.  

In a sentimental Instagram post, she shared her humble beginnings when she was still a teenager from Cebu with “two impossible goals in my pocket,” which were to be seen on TV and to help her family financially.  

“I remember I always save 12 pesos in my baon for the week para may pamasahe going to church pag Sunday, I always pray at the Sto. Niño church and part of my prayer is these two pero dulo na dahil alam ko impossible and parang malabo lalo na yung una,” she shared.  

Years later, Kim said she’s speechless as she looks back on how powerful prayer really is.  

“I am happy to where I am now. I am feeling extra grateful to the people na tumulong sakin along the way. I cannot do this alone,” she said.  

The 31-year-old then thanked the most important people in her life — from her supporters, bosses to family — who had a hand in making her dream come true.  

In her post, she shared photos from where it all started — the Pinoy Big Brother house. Kim started her career in showbiz after winning the reality show’s first teen edition.
