The PBB Teen winner and GMA Artist Center talent is also a champion for education


Myrtle Sarrosa has been advocating education and feminine hygiene awareness amongst girls and young women since 2016, which was the first time she became an endorser for Sisters.

Born and raised in Iloilo, the actor-slash-gamer-slash-cosplayer rose to fame after being hailed as Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition 4 Big Winner. She is currently under GMA Artist Center. Recently, she renewed her partnershi­p Megasoft Hygiene Products Inc., manufactur­er of the popular and locally made sanitary napkin and pantyliner brand. “When I first became Sisters’ endorser, we worked together to rise above and sobrang nakaka proud yung lahat ng naging accomplish­ments namin sa Sisters and Megasoft within the last six years,” the 27-year-old artist said in a media conference.

Valuing education

According to Aileen Choi Go, Megasoft vice president for sales and marketing, Sarrosa is the human embodiment of Sisters Feminine Care Brand tagline’s “School is cool.”

She added, “We have inspired thousands of students, we have helped multiple schools and we have been a part of the movement to which we make school fun and award all the students and teachers for all that they do. Nakakatuwa din having the opportunit­y na tulungan yung iba’t ibang school sa kanilang facilities and create events to empower them.”

In the pandemic when they had to stop doing school tours, Sarrosa and Sisters continued their mission online.

“She sets the bar of an excellent role model for the young ones to finish their studies amidst challenges and juggling demands of show business,” Go said.

In 2017, Sarrosa graduated cum laude at the University of the Philippine­s-Diliman with Broadcast Communicat­ion as her course.

The brand had been a huge help to her during her time in college and even after that. So when they asked her to renew her contract, she was overjoyed and touched.

“Sisters never limited me. In fact, sinuportah­an nila ako (They even supported me). They helped me grow from who I was to who I am right now,” she said.

Aside from show business, she has an NFT store and a small production agency on the side.
