Andrea Brillantes uses popular Tiktok account to urge 1st time voter to choose Robredo


Using her popular Tiktok account, young actress Andrea Brillantes has urged fellow first-time voters to choose Vice President Leni Robredo as president in the May 9 polls.

“First time voter? Yes. Pero hindi naman natin first time maging Pilipino. Kaya sa mga katulad ko na first time voter, gusto ko lang sabihin sa inyo, hindi ka nag-iisa,” said Andrea, the most followed Filipino celebrity on Tiktok with 17.6 million followers.


“Tayo ang bubuo ng mas mahusay, mas matibay, at mas mabuting bayan. Kaya naman boboto ako. At ang unang boto ko, ay para kay Leni Robredo. Kaya naman samahan n'yo akong samahan siyang ipanalo ang lahat ng Pilipino,” she added.

At first, Andrea admitted she had a difficult time choosing her presidential bet, due to her trust issues and fear of being bashed online for expressing support for a particular candidate.


“Ginusto ko bang manahimik dati? Oo naman, mas madali 'yun eh. Tsaka sabi naman ng mga tao, bata lang daw ako, wala daw akong alam kundi mag Tiktok lang. Naniwala naman ako nang very slight,” she explained.

“Kasi bukod sa magulo ang pulitika, baka nga tama naman sila-- na mas alam ng mga mas nakakatanda ang ikabubuti ng ating bayan. Papunta pa lang tayo, pabalik na sila, eh. Ilang beses mo nang narinig yun?” she added.

But Andrea had a change of heart when VP Leni decided to run for president, saying her fear was replaced with courage that inspired her to speak out on her choice for the country’s next leader.

“Yung ingay na gusto akong patahimikin, napalitan ng malakas na boses para sa bayan. Yung pulitika na napakalayo para sa ’kin, biglang naging personal. Hindi ako marunong mangampanya, pero ginagawa ko kasi gusto kong ipanalo natin ‘to,” she said.

Andrea made her first appearance for VP Leni during the Vice President’s record-breaking birthday rally on April 23 in Pasay City where more than 400,000 supporters attended.
