It's all about heroes and Pinoy artists today as Aia de Leon of Imago opens up about what she thinks are the qualities of a hero. The singer-songwriter believes that a hero should be honest and has love for family and country. According to her, a hero should also have that thirst for knowledge and should have a just mind.
"Hindi sapat 'yung edukasyon na nakuha mo sa unibersidad. Kailangan patuloy pa din 'yung pagtatanong para patuloy 'yung pag-unlad ng kaalaman. Kung nais maging pinuno importante 'yung palagi kang nagmamasid... importante 'yung may pang-unawa ka, balanse 'yung pagtingin mo sa mundo."
When asked who her personal heroes are, her mother is #1 on the list, followed by two very well-known Philippine heroes.
"Bayani sa akin ang nanay ko kasi binigyan niya ako ng magandang edukasyon. Pangalawa si Jose Rizal. Naniniwala ako na ganun dapat ang isang citizen ng isang country. Aware ka sa sitwasyon ng bansa mo. (Another one is) Ninoy Aquino. He was willing to die for what he believed that was best for our country."
