Meet the Gulay Girl who looks like Liza Soberano.
After the fame of “Carrot Man,” Jeyrick Sigmaton and “Badjao Girl” Rita Gabiola, one girl tagged as “Gulay Girl” won the hearts of the netizens. She is compared to famous and beautiful Kapamilya actress Liza Soberano. The original photo was first posted by Facebook page “Kami ang Batang Gapo” where she was dubbed as “Gulay Girl.”
She is identified as “Marian,” a 12-year-old vendor of vegetables for a living. The fourth-grade student lives in Gordon Heights in Olongapo City and is the eldest of six children.
She walks one hour down to the rough terrain to reach town as she was living in the mountainous area at the far end of Gordon. She left school several times to help her parents earn a living. At a very young age, she was robbed of the opportunity to acquire a good education, having no choice.
At early as 6 a.m, she wakes up and sell vegetables. She waits all her vegetables to be sold out by 12 noon before going home. Aside from her beautiful looks, people admired her for sacrificing her studies to help her parents.
Netizens also called out people who can help Marian and her family so she could continue her studies and get a brighter future someday.
We pray that people would willingly help her continue her studies and also helped her parents to have a stable source of income. She deserves so much better and we hope she will achieve her dreams in life someday.
