She signed contract with GMA-7 only last year and already, she has bagged back-to-back projects with the network namely the recently concluded soap “Mundo Mo’y Akin” and “Dormitoryo” which premiered last Sunday, Sept. 22. Dormitoryo is topbilled by Lauren Young together with GMA’s teen stars Joyce Ching, Wyn Marquez, Ruru Madrid, and Enzo Pineda. Completing the cast are Mayton Eugenio, Annicka Dolonius, Ash Nordstrom and Mel Kimura.
