It’s tough to walk up on stage infant of hundreds of people looking directly at your every movement, and then having to perform. Especially so for 14-year-old Marlisa Punzalan, who said she has been naturally shy all her life.
Her one dream is to be really confident “like other girls” so that one day she can step up on a big stage and not feel any pressure at all. She appeared on ‘The X Factor’ and had to do just that, thing her first step to achieving her dream.
As she walked on stage, the judges talked about her “funky” pants and it had everyone laugh, making it more nervous for her, but she carried on and delivered an incredible rendition of “Yesterday”.
