Yassi Pressman is officially Ginebra San Miguel’s Calendar Girl for 2023!
The Ang Probinsyano actress posted a series of photos on Instagram, flaunting her sculpted abs while clad in a beige bikini bottom and a cropped tank top. “Proud to be your Ginebra San Miguel Calendar Girl 2023. #YassQueenOfTheBarangay,” she captioned her post.
When she was introduced as Ginebra’s newest calendar girl, Yassi admits that she was “surprised, shocked, and honored.”
“At the end of the day, being a part of such a great legacy is something that’s gonna be a milestone in my life. So I think it’s really something special na kailangan paghandaan,” she says.
Of course, reaching this milestone also comes with responsibility, and for Yassi, that is aiming to empower Filipina women to be themselves unapologetically, just like her.
“I try to show my most natural self online. For little girls, or anybody who starts following me, I want them to see the non-perfect side of celebrities they see on TV. I showed my struggles. I show myself in my not so glamorous form,” she shares.
“Whenever I get messages from little girls or any netizen saying that I inspire them to dance, act, and to keep moving forward, it gives me the ‘ganado’ feeling and hope and aspiration to empower more women.”
