Filipinos have once again dominated social media as this blind girl from Iloilo made it to the finals of La France a un Incroyable Talent or France Got Talent!
This girl is named Katchry Jewel Golbin, or Jel for short; originally from Tapaz, Capiz. Because of being born prematurely, she was born blind. But this didn't stop her from pursuing her dreams.
She enrolled in SPED Integrated School for Exceptional Children in Iloilo city and later transferred to Iloilo City National High School. She then strived to finish her English Degree in Central Philippine University. She then took French as an elective language and was so interested in the topic that she took extra lessons to speak the language fluently.
She sang Les Moulins de Mon Coeur which landed her a spot in the finals of the TV show.
Meanwhile, her mother, who stays in the Philippines, shared that this is a dream come true for her daughter. "We [are] praying and hoping. We never thought this would be possible. All our friends, relatives and town mates have been asking us how they can vote to help her win, but it’s in France. We hope Filipinos there will help her,” she said.
