Here’s the interview of Toni Gonzaga with Senator Grace Poe in Toni Talks.
TONI GONZAGA – Famous host Toni Gonzaga dives into the life story of Senator Grace Poe and her life growing up with her veteran celebs’ parents.
The YouTube channel of Toni Gonzaga became her means to interview and dive deeper into the uniques life stories of various people and famous personalities. Several lessons from the stories were imparted and it seems the interviewee opens up a part of them that most people have not seen. And this, her recent guest is Senator Grace Poe. The segment is called Toni Talks.
Senator Poe talked about her life being the adopted daughter of two of the icons in the show business industry, Susan Roces and Fernando Po Jr. She shared that growing up, she’s much closer to her father. The bullies in her school were the ones who introduced to her the word “ampon” and it’s her mother who explained to her that she may not have come from his womb, but she is from their hearts.
She grew up without the feeling of anything lesser than being adopted. She was much-adored, well-provided, and loved most by her parents. But when FPJ died, she confessed that she was not able to see him alive. She returned to the country but he’s already dead. She was not able to say her final message to him.
The female senator has a lot of fond memories with him and it’s his father’s legacy that actually pushed her to pursue her plans in politics. She’s now one of the most respected senators in the country and his legacy fueled her to run for the presidency in 2016. She was not successful being a president but she was voted by over 22 million people to be a senator again.
And above from saying how much she loves her father and how deeply grateful she is for everything that he has done to her, deep inside her, she’s hoping that he is proud. She is purely sure that if FPJ was only around, he will be the first one to cheer for her and congratulate her.
