We may encounter a lot of promising stars today. They are greatly admired by many Filipinos not just for their impressive talents and skills but because of their humble beginnings as well. With all the good and bad experiences they went through, they were able to use all of them to make themselves better. As we see them grow and develop as great individuals, we could help it but admire them even more. Just like Ivana Alawi, one of the most promising stars of this generation.


Some people are unaware of how she really had started in her show business career, as many of us only knew that she was the elder sister of Mona Louise Rey, one of the most popular child stars of the Kapuso network.

Many of us didn’t know that Ivana had actually joined the reality-based artista search of GMA network, Starstruck Season VI back in 2015. She introduced herself as Mariam Al-Alawi back then. The 19-year-old YouTuber was able to move into two rounds of the said competition which was the Door Elimination a d the Top 28 Dreamers.


It was during the second elimination night when Ivana finally ended her journey in Starstruck. Other eliminated finalists with her were Kyle Vergara, Faith Da Silva, and Carl Cervantes. The grand winner of the sixth season of the popular competition was Klea Pineda and Migo Adecer. Who would have thought that after three years since her Starstruck journey, she will be given a chance to be a Kapamilya actress under her new screen name Ivana?


She had her first supporting role in ABS-CBN. And now, she is one of the most admired social media personality and almost every single Filipino already know and admire her not just for her amazing beauty and gorgeous body but because of her unique personality as well.
