WATCH: This guy with ‘curse’ shares his journey towards acceptance

Al Moralde has something to share.

In a video posted on Facebook, which has now gone viral with over one million views, this one Kagay-anon with a background in acting has confidently confessed how his appearance is apparently affecting the way he lives his life.

According to him, he didn’t want to believe it at first, but his friends and family insisted that there was nothing he could do about it. In the end, he had to accept it.

Hear his full story below:

One of the things Moralde shared in the video is that because of his appearance, studying became hard for him. He was given no choice but to represent his school in various competitions, including the “Battle of the Great Faces,” because he is “gwapo.” He is so “gwapo” that people even mistake him for James Reid.

Moralde studied Bachelor of Science in Development Communication at Xavier University – Ateneo de Cagayan and now actively vlogs.

At the end of the video, he gave an advice to those who are going through the same tough experience as him. He said to simply not think about it.

Well, as Blake Lively of ‘Gossip Girl’ once said, “the most beautiful thing you can wear is confidence.” Although we find the video hilarious, we have nothing but respect for this guy. If you want to see more of his videos, you can also visit his YouTube channel.
