ABS-CBN entertainment reporter took to Instagram to post a message of positivity and encouragement amid her ongoing legal battle with her colleagues in the Kapamilya network.

As seen in her Instagram post, Fullido looked back on how she was able to build her career in the years that have passed.

She added that she remains grateful for all the things helped shape the person that she is now.

Fullido also shared some of her takeaways from working as an ABS-CBN reporter.

“Being immersed in news and current affairs, traveling to different places and meeting new and interesting subjects for work is something I will forever be passionate about.

“Working in television and radio opened my eyes to a whole new world of inspiring ideas and life stories. It was a medium for my voice and the voice of others to be heard.

“It also made me a better and well-rounded person. While we talk about our dreams and following our passions, it’s leading by action that really matters.

“Each day gives me so much delight knowing the exciting possibilities there is out there. Every day is a different day and every person I meet is another story to tell. In the process, we also touch lives and to me, that is priceless,” she said.

She then talked about the trials that she has experienced which, according to her, have made her a stronger person.

“Along the way, we also face a lot of trials, challenges, and obstacles that either make us or break us.

“But I choose to look at trials as a tool to shape us and make us a stronger individual. It’s a constant reminder of telling ourselves that we should keep going even when things get hard.

“If I learned anything through my own hardships and challenges, it’s that I was stronger than I ever thought.

“Don’t ever be discouraged thinking how you will find the strength; instead, pray and trust in Him and just keep moving forward and the strength will come,” she said.
