Tell me something about your childhood. What do your parents do? How many siblings do you have? What’s your position among your siblings?
Reins Mika: I am the eldest daughter of a Chinese-Filipino family. I grew up with two siblings, a younger sister and a brother. I would say that I had a wonderful childhood growing up. I spent my childhood playing in the parks, playgrounds, and streets of our neighborhood while also watching Disney Channel and playing dress-up.
Did you have any expectations or personal standards you had set for yourself when you decided to join showbiz? What are those?
Reins Mika: Starting a career in show business is a completely new endeavor. It takes providing the audience with a rich experience of the story and to form strong connections with your fellow co-actors. As actors, we also hold great power in being storytellers; perhaps, the personal standard I had set for myself is to never stop learning. To take each day as a brand-new chance to improve my skills and abilities. I hope that growing in this industry I would be able to touch people’s lives and learn from the creative expertise of talented producers, directors, and scriptwriters I’ll have the opportunity to work closely with.
