The shooting of the vlog went along smoothly as Robredo was easy to get along with and so much easy to talk to, according to Barretto.
“What I learned about VP Leni during the shoot is how much fun she is. How much she laughs,” Barretto said when asked about her experience working up close and personal with the Vice President.
“She is so humble and relatable,” the actress said.
Robredo, who admitted that she regularly watches Barretto’s vlog even before, expressed her gratitude to Marjorie and her family for their support for her candidacy.
Barretto and her children are among the countless celebrities who have expressed support for Robredo’s presidential bid.
Explaining her decision, Barretto said she decided to back Robredo because of the Vice President’s genuine concern for the youth.
“I am supporting VP Leni, because I see how much she cares for the youth. How she empowers and believes in them,” Barretto said.
“Being a mother to 5 children, it made me appreciate the fact that she had a solid plan for them,” she added.
She also described Robredo as intelligent, compassionate and selfless for opting to continue to serve the country against all odds.
