She is currently working as a presenter in a multi-episode children’s health and well-being series titled “Laya Super Troopers TV,” which is also the largest programme in Irish primary schools.

She even appeared in an Irish short movie called “Tina Times Two,” a surreal coming-of-age fable about a lonely girl whose wish comes true when she gains a magical friend.

Another project she’s been on is an Internet safety campaign for Google in collaboration with Irish children’s charity Barnados called “Be Internet Legends.”

MJ’s mom Ched is a very proud Pinay and MJ is proud of both her Filipino and Irish heritage. Soon, MJ hopes to be granted the opportunity to perform in the Philippines in the future.
