“No, I am no longer part of GT,” she revealed. “I’ve been dancing for 17 years now and being a performer is a huge, huge responsibility. I am supposed to share my talent and entertain. I am supposed to give an enjoyable and memorable experience to the audience. And I feel that I am not able to able to fulfill those duties and responsibilities as a performer when I am with GT.”
Dawn was already a professional dancer when she joined Pinoy Big Brother in 2015.
“Mastering an art takes a lifetime. You need consistent training, you need consistent practice, you need a very strong foundation, and a very strong discipline para mag succeed o para gumaling ka,” she continued. “In all fairness, we have to give credit to these girls because they are trying their best. But I feel that we are not on the same page.”
Dawn also mentioned that reaching 30 years of age has made her want to “relieve myself from the group and start doing things on my own.”
She expressed her excitement over this new chapter of her life knowing that she’s on her way to becoming much “better than yesterday.”
“For me, it’s not about the fame, it’s not about the fortune. It’s about the principle. If one day I become a very, very good performer, fame and fortune will come next. But for now, I want growth,” she added.
