THE “P” TALKS!
BY: Pilar Mateo
DJ PEARL PEARLY IMBUIDO GARDINER. Who is she?
“In 2013, I was a Radio Broadcaster at PINOY RADIO 98.5 FM . I had my segment Pinoy Entertainment News for at least a Year. And in 2014 I volunteered as a Radio Broadcaster at TRIPLE H 100.1 FM . During that time I had my own Radio Program /show once a week for an hour time slot that lasted for 3 years.
“It was an amazing experiences. I’ve interviewed few mainstream Aussie celebrities and mostly FILIPINO Celebrities and Filipino Australian Artists and Influential people here in Sydney.
“And in the late 2017 I left Radio and the Community, in other words I had a break for almost 3 years.
“And mid this year I am back again in the Community. I am actively attending Community Events. And also in the meantime doing my FB Showbiz Buzz Blogging while currently looking around which community Radio station I will join and hopefully be back in the airwaves again.
“I was excited of course . Knowing that I will be working with not just my best friend, neighbor, relative but now my Mentor MJ Racadio the Hollywood Blogger/Podcaster. What a privilege and opportunity it has been.
“As a matter of fact when I started at TRIPLE H 100.1 FM station and had my own show. It was MJ’s idea to name my program “Showbiz Buzz”. And I really thank him for that. I will always be forever grateful.
“My friends and relatives are all very happy for me . They are wowed by the fact that I am an Australian Correspondent for Blog Talk with MJ Racadio. They say I am now in to the next level .It’s so flattering when you hear compliments like that.
“As MJ’s correspondent I will make sure that I can deliver what he and our viewers /listeners expects of me . I look forward hopefully next year when MJ comes to visit me and his Social Dragon PR talent Julianne Richards and her mum Imelda here Down Under to finally THANK him in person . I can’t wait . I am super excited.
ON THE OTHER HAND, ANOTHER TALENT ON SOCIAL DRAGON PR IS ON THE RISE.
JULIANNE RICHARDS. What about her?
“My name is Julianne Marie Richards. 20 years of age, born on the 18th of December 1999. I was born and raised in Sydney, Australia nut who is also now a proud dual citizen in Manila, Philippines.
“I get the Filipino heritage from my mother, whereas my dad is Australian/Italian/German.
“Despite growing up in Australia, my family made sure I grew up knowing about the Filipino Culture, the reason why I’ve learned to embrace my Filipino heritage at such a young age.
“I started learning the language. Tagalog at 8 years old. Fluent at 12. I pushed myself to learn the language after discovering my passion for acting. At that point, I knew what I wanted to pursue. After my studies in Australia.
“At the age of 3, I got to have my first modelling experience after getting spotted at Merrylands, Stockland. I was then featured on the front cover of Stockland Catalogue. After some years, I discovered that I had some type of passion for dance but didn’t start taking actual dance classes for jazz/hip-hop until I was 11. For a while, I also started singing.
“In 2014, I was introduced to the showbiz industry in the Philippines. I started with baby steps. I met Direk Edgar ‘Bobot’ Morriz and his family. They complimented my appearance. I got featured in the teen show “Luv U”, “Home, Sweetie Home” and a SMART commercial. When I went back to Sydney, I got more involved with the Filipino Community. I performed at the Kapamilya Go as KC Concepcion look-alike.
“In 2015, I was approached by a talent scout from Star Magic when I auditioned in “Pinoy Big Brother” at the Araneta Coliseum. My third time after auditioning twice online. That path led me to Viva Films where I met Ms. Veronique del Rosario. Who got impressed with my Tagalog and Anne Curtis look. I was given a contract I signed in late 2016. I still want to finish with my high school studies.
“2016-2018, from time to time, I get the chance to do gigs while studying, as back-up dancer in Filipino events/concerts and modelling. This was where I experienced the world of pageantry, too. I earned the title Miss Teen Australasia Charity Princess 2016 and Miss Teen Tourism World Australia 2017.
“I went back to the Philippines for a while and got featured in “Good News”, “”Wansapanataym”, “Never Not Love You”, “Bagani” (as double of Liza Soberano), “Pambansang Almusal”, and “Radyo Inquirer”. I also got an endorsement for Leonardo’s Barbers and Salon (SM City FairView) in 2018.
“I know in my heart that acting is my passion. And I am so ready to pursue it.
“I am very thankful Tito MJ Racadio to be part of Social Dragon Family. Looking forward for all the opportunities here in Australia and Hollywood.”
TWO talents to look forward to seeing in our midst.
AS MJ celebrates his Season 13 Finale in his Blogtalk, it promises to be an exciting time.
