Surprise Birthday Celebration for Barbie Forteza

Barbie, here giving her bunch of thank you's.

The young Kapuso actress Barbie Forteza is unquestionably GMA-7's teen queen, having several lead roles from a youth-oriented show to even primetime teleseryes.

Her loveteam with Joshua Dionisio, which started in the Koreanovela remake, Stairway to Heaven, has been widely accepted by the young showbiz fans, and has created a hype that started another generation of young stars in TV.

Their first-ever show together as lead stars, First Time, became an instant hit, and has also introduced several young artists. Hence, a weekly youth-oriented show, Tween Hearts (which lasted for 2 years), was born!



Barbie's reaction as she entered the ballroom.

At a very young age, Barbie immediately showed her exceptional talent in acting, which made her stand out from the young actresses of her generation. This is why GMA-7 has continuously given her shows for her to share his acting prowess. Teleseryes with her as the lead star include Pilyang Kerubin, Nita Negrita, Ikaw Lang Ang Mamahalin, Luna Blanca (Book 2), Paroa: Ang Kwento ni Mariposa, and now as Karen in the top-rating teleserye, Anna Karenina.

With Barbie's undeniable talent, GMA-7 continues to shower her with blessings she truly deserves.

On her 16th birthday, Barbie's management, GMA Artist Center surprised her with her very own spa-themed party in Luxent Hotel, last August 1, 2013. Barbie had no idea about anything that's happening at the event, as she went there with the thought that she was attending a client presentation for GMA-7.

During the party, Barbie was also surprised by the GMA Artist Center with a couple of announcements, in connection with her 16th birthday celebration.


 

David Fabros and Simoun Ferrer, both GMAAC executives, announced that Barbie is going to have another party, with the children at the Philippine Children's Medical Center - an activity that made Barbie all smiles as she recalled that this is where she also spent her birthday last year.

Ken Chan (who hosted the surprise party) and Miguel Tanfelix are both good friends of Barbie.
David and Simoun also announced that Barbie will soon be launched as the newest ambassador of the Haribon Foundation, a non-government organization focused on protecting the environment. Barbie was overwhelmed with this announcement and expressed her excitement as the newest ambassador. She claims that there's no greater gift than the privilege to serve other people.

Among Barbie's friends who graced the surpise party were fellow tweens, Joyce Ching, Miguel Tanfelix and Ken Chan, who also served as the host for that afternoon. Also a surprise attraction in her party was her original love team partner, Joshua Dionisio.




With Barbie's exemplary skills in drama and strong charisma to the televiewers, I am sure this 16 year-old will continue to reap praises and awards in acting, and will definitely leave a mark as one of the industry's best discoveries. Happy birthday, Barbie!

* Barbie's real birthday is July 31, and she chose to celebrate it with her family though a simple dinner, and a day out with his best friend and current love team partner who is also celebrating his birthday, Derrick Monasterio.
