Her craving for the limelight began at an early age.
Growing up, Yassmin Isabel Pressman was one of those kids who joined pageants and fashion shows. The talented Filipino-British beauty recalls having VHS tapes of Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears wherein she would belt out to their songs and imitate their signature dance moves. “I’ve always wanted to be a performer”, she said.
And perform she did.
After being discovered while inside a mall when she was six years old, Yassi has indeed come a long way. Viva Artist Agency seems to have it all figured out for this gem: A self-titled album under Viva Records is currently in the works, her first lead role in a movie will soon hit the theaters, a love team is also being cooked up, and of course, she continues an MTV Pinoy VJ.
“Yassi was born to be a star. Other than her looks, her talents are exceptional- truly a performer. She is such a nice and happy person, too. On set, she’s very pleasant and respects everyone she works with. We are very happy to have her as part of the Greenwich barkada”, says Cookie Cabrera, PR Head of Greenwich. She started out as being a talent in commercials. Fourteen years and twenty-five commercials later, another dream of hers has been materialized – a full on product endorsement.
The soon-to-be 20-year old Yassi is the newest member of the Greenwich Barkada. Being Greenwich’s newest it-girl, she loves the concept of the Greenwich Ultimate Bandkada Search. “I know what it’s like to go through the challenges of starting your music career,” Yassi shares. “But hard work, proper training and surrounding yourself with friends who you share the same interests with make the journey more fun and exciting. Enjoying music becomes even better when there’s great food you can share with them along the way. That’s an ultimate bonding experience!”
The little girl who once craved for the limelight is now a part of it. Her launch as part of the Greenwich barkada kicks off via the Greenwich Crispy Thins, which comes in five flavors – Signature, Hawaiian, All-Meat, 7-Cheese and Pepperoni. “Best to order the barkada size since pizza is best eaten when shared!” exclaims Yassi.
In Yassi’s words, “There’s no schedule when I eat the Greenwich Signature Crispy Thins. I just crave for it then I give in and have a bite or two. Sometimes more!” Greenwich Crispy Thins bursts with flavour. Less crust means more flavor to be enjoyed and experienced. Cravings will indeed be satisfied.
