“Before po nag-start ako mag-trabaho, nagtinda po muna ako sa palengke. Dun po nag-umpisa yung pambu-bully. Ang hirap sa pakiramdam na lagi ka na lang binu-bully sa school, sa work… Iba yung tingin ng tao sa’yo,” he said.

He said he started using a beauty soap. To achieve a fit body, he enrolled in a gym. He also had a balanced diet.
“Sinubukan ko pong baguhin the way I dress myself from head to toe, my lifestyle. Nag-invest po ako sa damit,” he added.
He went on to say that he did not stop until he finally achieved his ideal weight and appearance.
He has inspired a lot of people
Because of his story, there is no denying that a lot of netizens were also inspired to improve themselves.
Villanueva said that he will now use his voice to influence other people. His goal is to also raise awareness to some issues, such as online bashing and bullying, which he said are very relevant in the Philippine setting.

Finally, Dave shared his message to those who experienced being bullied. What matters most, according to him, is what is inside you.
“Sa mga na-bully, kung gusto niyo ng pagbabago, umpisahan niyo sa sarili niyo and everything else will follow.”
