Gentleman of the World 2019 Mark Angelo Avila is making the most of quarantine these days by being active in social media.
“I am very active in creating contents in social media such as cover songs, original songs, vlogs so that in my own way I could help lessen the stress and anxiety that everyone feels just like me,” said Mark, who is also the defending champion in “Tawag ng Tanghalan” for the month of March.
Mark said that he feels blessed he gets to spend the lockdown or quarantine with his family and loved ones.
“I was very lucky to be able to return from Manila to my family in Bicol safely and without getting fired from work and was given an opportunity to work from home. I also became active in making song covers and released my original songs during the pandemic. Aside from work and music, I was also busy caring for my family’s well being. I made sure that everyone in our family is active and health conscious. I also had time to work out regularly to stay in shape. During this pandemic I realized more how precious our life is and how lucky I am to be with my family,” the charming pageant king shared.
