Like a phoenix rising from the ashes,
Jennylyn Mercado has triumphed over
the many challenges in her life.
She has gone on to exhibit on national television
and in full public view, not only her talents
but also her unbroken spirit.
Jennylyn first caught the attention of televiewers
via Starstruck, GMA's 7 reality based star search show.
In a program where survival of the filtest is the key,
she wowed televiewers with her talent in singing,
dancing and acting and bested 14 other finalists to
emerge as Starstruck First Ultmate Female Survivor.
But life was never easy for this lady. At a very young age,
she had her share for family trials, landing on the front
pages of tabloids as a victim of child abuse. Likewise,
fame was not brought to her on a silver platter.
She climbed her way to stardom by trying her luck as a
commercial model and a bit player in various TV series
before achieving starstruck success.
Now considered one of the country's hottest young stars,
Jennylyn is enjoying the fruits of her labors with two
solo albums (another one coming soon), hit movies and
regular TV shows.
Of course with success has come controversy with the
pretty Jen, controversy usually involves the men who
have wooed her and as talk goes the men she has wooed.
True or false, are the talks definitely proved Jennylyn has already arrived.
