ABS-CBN Hollywood correspondent Yong Chavez made it on the cover of The Manila Times' Sunday Times Magazine, just in time for yesterday's Mother's Day.

In the cover story, written by Carla Bianca Ravanes-Higham, the award-winning journalist talked about her journey as a "mom, wife and fighter."

"I first met news reporter Yong Chavez in action. She was in the middle of coverage and was clearly a master at what she does. She was quick to think of an angle, smart in asking questions and decisive when to wrap up the interview," wrote Ravanes-Higham. "But most of all, what was palpable from this bundle of energy is her passion — a vital factor to succeed in one’s vocation but one that cannot be learned."

For the first time, Chavez also shared some personal photos of her husband Jun and daughter Janine, who is now making a name for herself as a Hollywood casting producer.

“I’m a proud wife and mom. I’ve been with my husband since college and we’re still so — nauseatingly, as our daughter would attest — in love. To him, I could do anything I set out to do. And when someone believes in you that completely, you feel like you can fly. And if you fall, you know he’s there too so I’m blessed by his love," she said.

“Now we are big TV and movie watchers in the family so it’s good that I’m in the business. Our daughter is, too, now because she’s a casting producer in Hollywood — the youngest in the company. I’m so proud of her but I tell her I’ll be proud of her whatever she wants to do as long as she’s happy,” Chavez added.
