As she turns 24 on March 26, Kathryn Bernardo is determined to become more independent this year.
She says, "I have to work on that. Iyan ang promise ko this year...more of my independence.
"Ewan ko, grabe lang nangyari sa 2019. I'm so blessed. At simula pa lang ng 2020, sobrang daming blessings, so grabe. Grabe lang.
"It's overwhelming. Puro pagsasalamat lang...It's a good start."
The 23-year-old ABS-CBN actress also launched her own YouTube channel in the first week of January.
The channel now has over 1.27 million subscribers.
Last year, Kathryn's main goal was to work on her "personal growth."
During a Facebook Live session for an endorsement in March 2019, Kathryn tagged 2019 as "the most challenging year."
Answering a fan question about her goals for 2019, Kathryn said: "At the end of this year, gusto ko ma-achieve yung growth ko siguro individually, sa amin ni DJ, alam mo 'yon?
"Kasi for the longest time, kami yung magkasama, and this year yung pinakamalaking challenge for me and sa kanya, kasi, alam mo 'yon?
"Magkahiwalay muna kami as a love team. Iyan ang gusto namin ma-achieve, para by the time na magka-reunion project kami, we are both ready individually.
"And, ewan ko, feeling ko mas buo kami."
