MANILA, Philippines – “Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition 4” big winner Myrtle Sarrosa was in full cosplay mode when she guested on “Bandila” Wednesday night.

Sarrosa was wearing one of her favorite costumes while being interviewed by Boy Abunda.

Although doing cosplay is a little expensive, Sarrosa said she started to become a cosplayer when she was 14 years old because of her love for anime.

“[My family was] shocked [when I decided to do cosplay] but they accepted me, enjoyed seeing me do what I love. We cosplay to express addiction. We do it because we love it,” said Sarrosa.

Asked how much does her costume cost, Sarossa estimated it at around P5,000.

Sarrosa also revealed that she was not as confident when she was younger and admitted that she was bullied.

“I was bullied -- tinatapunan ako ng bato, pinagpustahan ako. They thought they can just push me around but now I proved I can excel in everything that I do,” she said.

But the "Pinoy Big Brother" grand winner said the experience made her stronger and a better person.

“All can say is those struggles, 'yung dating naranasan mo, make sure you will stand again and become stronger,” she said.
