It’s crazy how it has become a necessity for models, artists, and personalities to actively engage in social media. These people curate their Internet identities as carefully as they would write their resumes, and you can’t blame them for doing so since most major endorsers really look into how a person is able to influence others when they decide who to get to represent their brand.
Whether they like it or not, this is how media is evolving so they either adapt or become irrelevant. Or, if you‘re like our cover girl Misa Campo, you can just continue being yourself with your capacity to genuinely attract people.
In the needlessly complicated world of social media, Misa Campo simplifies things by being real (who is all she needs to be in our opinion) despite the pressures of the community “to be different.”
“I’m not as active on social media as everybody else. I just like to live in the moment. I don’t really like to hold on to my phone to capture every moment as they go by.” This keeps her active followers on Instagram (280,000 as of this writing) who seem to always be on the edge of their seats waiting to “like” all her posts.
Misa’s just the type of girl who you keep an eye on. We know we did, because when we learned that she was visiting the Philippines again, we didn’t have any second thoughts asking her if she wanted to be on our cover again. We were also pretty kilig when it seemed like she was just as excited as us to have the opportunity to have another FHM shoot. “It’s always a really, really great time [to shoot for FHM Philippines]. The stylist, the hair, the make-up–they’re always amazing. Xander Angeles is always awesome, so I was sure that this shoot would be as good as the last.”
It’s always refreshing to work with Misa who is drop-dead gorgeous yet is not afraid of showing her real self to people. You can tell that she’s still the down-to-earth car show model and bartender we shot in 2011, despite having already gone beyond that with stints in international modelling and pageants in Canada.
But with the steady rise in popularity come the haters, as is the norm for Internet fame. “I feel like some people think that I’m a bitch. I honestly can’t really tell, maybe I could be?” says Misa. “I do try my hardest to be a nice person, to be nice to everyone. I think I have, like, a resting bitch face sometimes, so they’ll go, ‘she’s not nice,’ but, what can I do? I try to be true and just really authentic as possible with everybody.”
