MANILA, Philippines -- Despite the success of her ABS-CBN series "Aryana," Ella Cruz still hopes to become a flight attendant one day.

In an interview, Cruz said she knows that a showbiz career is not forever.

"I want to become a flight attendant. I want to travel and explore the different parts of the world," said Cruz, who's incoming fourth-year high school student.

Cruz also hopes that through "Aryana," she can motivate her fans to focus and at the same time enjoy their time at school.

"Hopefully they will be inspired to excel in their studies and at the same time be active in their chosen extra-curricular activities like Aryana's character," says Cruz.

The young star admitted that she is a bit pressured since the public expects her to be a good role model to her young fans.

But she said is taking this pressure positively, as she has become more determined to do her best for their show's loyal followers.

"I really want to be an inspiration to every generation, especially to little kids who have big dreams like mine. I want them to realize that they can also make their dreams happen," she said.

“Aryana,” air weeknights on ABS-CBN Primetime Bida before "TV Patrol".
