Young actress Francine Diaz recently sat down with Dr. Vicki Belo to talk about her life before rising to fame.

In a Youtube vlog uploaded on August 26, the 17-year-old actress recalled her family's past hardships.

"Wala kaming kuryente. Wala rin kaming masyadong food noon pati water. Bagong panganak pa lang din si Mama sa kapatid kong bunso."

Francine also looked back at the time she borrowed money just so she could go on auditions for commercials.

"One midnight, kumatok kami sa kapitbahay at nanghiram kami ng pamasahe. Binigyan nila kami kaya forever grateful kami sa kanila."

She added, "Kapag nahihirapan ako tapos na-achieve ko yung gusto ko, nakakahinga ako ng maluwag. Kailangan muna mapagdaanan yung hirap bago masabi na na-achieve ko ito."
