But somehow, Pia found a way into the Filipino entertainment industry and started earning bread and butter for her family. As a teenager, she started acting in films such as ‘Kung Ako Na Lang Sana,’ ‘All About Love’ and ‘All My Life.’ Once she graduated from high school, she embarked onto a career as a beauty writer, stylist and makeup artist.
