Pinay in Pink November 2010: Star Villanueva

She is an international flight attendant, businesswoman, magazine writer, blog owner of StarVillanueva.Com and a spa in Timog. Read on to find out why this young achiever believes that brains is more important than beauty.

Name: Estrellita Villanueva
Nick-Name: Star
Ethnicity: Filipino
Hometown: Quezon City, Philippines
Age: 25
Language Spoken: English, Filipino
Occupation: International Flight Attendant, Magazine Writer, Spa Owner
Height: 5’4
Weight: 118

PML: Are you health-conscious?
Star: Yes I am. I wear sunscreen, take vitamins, eat plenty of fruits, veggies and rich fiber food. But, I love to indulge my sweet cravings too and I never drink/smoke. (It’s very harmful to skin!)

PML: What is your basic beauty regimen?
Star: Make sure no makeup left at the end of the day, then nourish your skin with a moisturizer. As long as the product is effective to your skin, it doesn’t have to be expensive all the time!

PML: Which one do you think is more important? Beauty or brain?
Star: Brains. There has to be more to you than just your beautiful face. It’s something that either gravity or stress cannot take away from you.

PML: At what age did you start working full-time?
Star: 21 years old, right after I graduated college.

PML: What do you think is your greatest achievement in life?
Star: You can tell yourself that you have reached a point in life where you can say, “I am successful” That was my feeling when I was invited as guest speaker in a school to inspire college students about my achievements & experience in life and I’ve also been featured to quite number of blogs.

I considered having properties such as condo unit & lot in an early age as one of my greatest achievement. Further to that, I was able to put up my very own Star Bliss Salon and Spa located in Timog ave corner Scout Torillo. I became my own boss besides from my flying career and magazine writer in the airline where I am working.

PML: Tell us about the lesson you learned from your family.
Star: Always be thankful to God for all the blessings. Use your wisdom. The unique set of skills and experiences you have developed over a lifetime makes you a great teacher to anyone in need. Before you know it, your influence will expand as you help a lot of people.

PML: How do you see yourself 5 years from now?
Star: Probably not a part of an airline anymore. By that time, I must already started building up my own happy family, already a successful cosmetic & organic spa supplies distributor and already have more than 3 branches of Star Bliss Salon & Spa! (I’m thinking of going to law school too. After all, we shouldn’t stop dreaming and putting that dream into reality.)

PML: What can you say to other Pinays who are losing confidence?
Star: Be with inspiring people. Who makes you happy, energetic, and alive. Be with those people more than those who provide you anguish, low morale & lose confidence. If your job does not fulfill you and make you happy, then you deserve to find another one because no amount of money and benefits can equal the stress and illness you will develop in a job that makes you miserable. Heal yourself by being with people who inspire you and make you whole and most of all always trust the Lord.

If you think you know someone who deserves to be featured as Pink MagaLine's Pinay in Pink of the month, email me together with the name, contact details and basic profile of the person you are referring. I'm sure a lot of Pink MagaLine readers would want to know more Pinays like her. Cheers!
