“You know what they say about lov­ing your­self first be­fore you are able to love oth­ers? liv­ing on my own has been my way of fill­ing up my emo­tional tank be­fore i de­cide to have a fam­ily of my own. i hope to see more girls pro­vide for them­selves first and see them love oth­ers bet­ter in the fu­ture.”

has been a pho­tog­ra­pher for 16 years now, and says, “i love shoot­ing for mag­a­zines—there’s al­ways a chance to meet new peo­ple and hear their sto­ries, plusi get to learn new things and ap­ply new tech­niques.” He shot this month’s “at Your place,” p126, a sec­tion de­signed to in­spire cosmo girls to be in­de­pen­dent. Jun says he’s only too glad to help them do that: “ev­ery pinay should be in­de­pen­dent so she can achieve her as­pi­ra­tions at her own pace and on her own terms. ”

who styled “Happy House­warm­ing,” p.122 in her own bach­e­lorette pad, says that be­ing on her own since 2014 was “un­doubt­edly one of the most ful­fill­ing de­ci­sions i’ve ever made! that’s when adult­ing truly started hit­ting me hard in the face as i now had to deal with things like real prop­erty tax and and house­hold main­te­nance all by my­self and solely from my own pocket. But choos­ing to be in­de­pen­dent now while you are still (of­fi­cially) un­at­tached gives you mo­ments you can only ex­pe­ri­ence at this time of your life.”
