WATCH: Badjao Girl Celebrates Her Amazing 14th Birthday
Lured by the promise of a better life, the Badjao tribe migrate from their coastal domain in the southern Philippines to venture here in Luzon with hope that the country’s capital has better opportunities for them. Among them is the famous Badjao Girl, Rita Gabiola.
Rita was a former Pinoy Big Brother housemate. She was discovered after a candid photo of her went viral while she was at the Pahiyas Festival in Lucban, Quezon.
After her stint inside the PBB house, Rita lived a wealthier life than what she had before. On her Instagram account, she shared how happy while celebrating her birthday for the first time in a pink gown.\
