Kapuso TV host-actress Patricia Tumulak remains resolute in pursuing her love for acting and being an advocate of reading.

The GMA Artist Center star plays Queenie in the newest GMA Afternoon Prime musical drama series, Inagaw na Bituin, which has been receiving praises and high ratings ever since it started airing.

“Hard work definitely pays off. I’m happy that the viewers like and appreciate the show. I get more motivated to work. I’m extremely grateful and honored to be part of this stellar cast. I’m elated because it’s a good training ground for me to hone my skills in acting, plus I get to work with my idols in the industry,” she said.

Patricia feels ecstatic as she challenges herself to do both of what she’s passionate about – acting and hosting. The immense support she’s surrounded with inspires her to explore her undeniable talent as she continues to hone her craft as an artist.

“I’m so grateful sa GMA kasi they trust me when it comes to hosting and acting. So kahit anong ibigay na opportunity, I’ll do my best. Nakakataba rin ng puso yung love from my family, friends and viewers na hindi nagsasawang sumuporta.”

Aside from this, she makes sure to stay committed to her aspirations outside the entertainment scene. The enthusiasm she has for teaching, which she refers to as her first love, never goes away; it only continues to bloom and unravel new and exciting things for her.

A graduate of Early Childhood Education, the Kapuso beauty aspires to put up her own preschool someday. She gets a big head start in putting her dreams into action as she carries out her passion project, ‘Push to Read.’

“With my line of work now, I can’t do full time so I thought of making my own initiative wherein I can squeeze time in between work or during my free time to be with kids and educate them,” shared Patricia.

Last year, she conducted her project in Bacolod which motivated her to make Push to Read a nationwide project.

“I gather kids from different barangays to conduct a story telling. Aside from sharing my blessings, my mission is to instill the love of reading to kids by helping develop their imagination and creativity.”
