MANILA, Nov 26 (Mabuhay) — Actress and social media star Ivana Alawi was unveiled as the 2021 calender girl of rhum brand Tanduay.
Alawi is seen posing in a variety of themed sets in the announcement video released by Tanduay, which described her as “capable, confident, and trendy.”
“The modern woman, redefining the calendar girl,” the brand added.
On Instagram, Alawi shared a snap from the calendar which sees her donning a revealing bodysuit apparently made of diamonds.
Her stint as a calendar girl is the latest “dream come true” for Alawi, who in the past year has had a meteoric rise to fame as in-demand actress and social media personality.
Alawi recently personally re-packed and distributed relief goods to victims of Typhoon Ulysses in Isabela and Cagayan.
In a departure from her fun entries on YouTube, Alawi shared in detail her charity initiative, from the bundling of the supplies, to the distribution to evacuees.
“I hope marami akong mapapasaya. Iyon lang naman ang gusto ko mangyari — to help people, to inspire people. No matter how small, how big it is, a blessing is a blessing. Life is beautiful, and life is worth sharing with everyone,” she said.
Alawi’s first stop was Santo Tomas in Isabela, where she met with displaced families and handed them the goods she had packed.
“It makes me really happy, ‘yung pagbigay ng tulong sa kapwa Pilipino na nangangailangan. Para sa akin, ginamit ako ni Lord para maging instrumento para makatulong sa iba,” she said.
“I feel really blessed and I feel really happy doing this, making other people happy, and knowing that maraming pamilya ang makakakain ngayong araw na ‘to.”
In coordination with the provincial government of Cagayan, Alawi then personally distributed goods at a covered court in Tuguegarao City. (MNS)
