Bianca Gonzalez is many things. She’s a model, a TV host, a newspaper writer, and a magazine editor. She’s down-to-earth, outspoken, and smart—very smart. We could go on and on about her amazing attributes, but we thought this list would do her more justice. Check out 10 things you might not know about @iamsuperbianca.

1. She’s 30!
Bianca Gonzalez has reached the big 3-0, and she couldn’t be more ecstatic about it. “Oh my god, it's the most amazing age ever,” she exclaims.

Having met the likes of Tweetie de Leon-Gonzalez and Apples Aberin when they were in their 30s, Bianca learned just how fabulous it was to be 30.

“They always talk about how, shucks, 30 is so great, parang you know yourself better, you have less issues, less insecurities and all that, so ever since then I was so excited to turn 30 and finally, when I did, I felt like, wow, it's everything I dreamed of and more.”

2. She has always wanted to go to film school.
“I was so convinced when I entered college na, as soon as I ended four years and graduated, I thought I was going to film school, she says. “That was really what I thought my life would be, but then again life took me through a different place.”

However, Bianca is not going to let go of those dreams anytime soon. “I look at people like Sharon or Korina, you know you can even study even when you're 30, 40, 50 so in that sense, I'm not pressuring myself.”

3. She wakes up at 3:00 A.M. for work every day, but she’s really more of an evening person.
Having an early morning show means Bianca doesn’t even have time to enjoy breakfast at home.

“I'm not an early riser. I'm an evening person. I used to sleep at maybe 2:00 to 3:00 A.M.,” she says. “Well, you write, so you know that evening time is the quiet, peaceful, productive working time—I used to be that.”

4. Just like us, she has a hard time getting out of bed.
“Actually, I still struggle now to try and wake up. Every morning, when I wake up, I ask myself why, but yeah, it's very difficult, but wala, work is work so you have to, and I love my job,” she says.

“Oh, on a babaw technique note, I actually snooze worth 30 minutes, maybe five times for 30 minutes. Like my first alarm will be 3, and then every five, ten minutes tapos in my head, feeling ko, oh my god, I'm getting 30 minutes more of sleep pero sa totoo lang hindi naman talaga (but the truth is, I'm really not.).”

5. She loves to travel on her own.
As much as she loves traveling with boyfriend JC Intal, Bianca says that there’s nothing quite like flying solo. “It's one of the best things in life. Either travel alone totally or you travel alone and meet up with someone there. Basta travel, it makes me the happiest,” she shares.

Going to Mexico by herself was admittedly very scary, but still fulfilling. “Ang mind-set ko lang was like what we think of Mexico is probably what people think of Manila, so there are the scary Tondo-type places , but there are also the nice, safe Taguig-Fort type places parang ganun so I made sure I stayed in that type of place.”

Want to jet off on your own? “There are so many amazing places,” says Bianca. “Near, I would say Hanoi is just totally beautiful, very easy to navigate, so much amazing food.” San Francisco and New York are also interesting places to visit.

6. She hasn’t had a vacation longer than 10 days since she first began working.
For those who know how hectic Bianca’s schedule is, it probably wouldn’t come as a surprise that she hardly has any time left for herself. When asked how busy she was on a scale of one to 10, she actually answered, “11.”

When she does find herself with a bit of free time, however, she does what every other hardworking person in her industry does: sleep! “It's like heaven. Ganung level.”

7. Did we say she loves to travel?
If she doesn’t feel like catching up on her sleep, Bianca says that she’ll probably be traveling. “Give me three days off, I'm gonna be somewhere,” she says.

8. She has just had this epiphany.
Nothing about Bianca says she doesn’t enjoy her work, but late last year, she realized just how she ended up being so busy these days. “My brother left the Philippines maybe in 05, my sister left three years ago, and then just last year, just late last year, my mother naman left, so I'm really the only one here,” she shares.

“And I realized that when my sister left, I really felt like, so lonely talaga without your family, so feeling ko, [working is] how I subconsciously tried to cope with feeling lonely. I just kept myself busy until one day, I woke up, oh my god, ang dami ko nang ginagawa, ano na nangyari (I'm doing so many things, how did this happen?)?”

9. Still Bianca knows that there is no better time for her to take advantage of all the opportunities that come her way than now.
“The way I rationalize it, kailan ko pa ito gagawin (when else would I do this?)? I'm single now, I don't have kids, no one to answer to but myself, so this is really the best time to work like a a horse. When else would I do it?”

10. She’s on the cover of the January-February issue of Women’s Health.
“Well, for this year, what we really want to do is to encourage our readers to make 2014 a year of going for their goals,” says Women’s Health managing editor Anna Felipe. “Whether it's to lose weight or get fit, eat healthier, I mean we even dream bigger, and we think that Bianca is someone who's not afraid to set grand goals and really go for them, and we think that she'll be able to inspire our readers to do the same.”
