I want to take a moment to thank all the people who tried to help me, suggested experts to contact, gave encouraging words, and even those who tried to fight the hacker. There are people who messaged the hacker even if it’s risking danger upon them as well, random people who were also willing to pay the hacker. I also appreciate my celebrity friends who tried to reach out. And of course, to my home network, GMA, for all the help. Without GMA’s immediate actions, I wouldn’t be speaking with you guys anymore here. There will be no chance I can get what I have lost. Because of this incident, I did realize how important and appreciated I am to some people. I go by my day everyday not seeing how I truly matter to the people around me. And I am really grateful for all of this support. 🙏🏼 (2/3) *to be continued*
