I follow lots of Instagrammer but I specifically like Heart Evangelista not just because she’s an actress that most people look up to but she’s a good influencer that promotes arts through Fashion, painting, makeup and I love that she supports pet adoption that she advertises people to adopt their pets and not purchase them, specifically here in the Philippines we don’t have the luxury of many pet shelters and foster homes for dogs and cats who are stray, most of the stray dogs end up in butcher houses which is illegal and some are put in impound and some mostly end up being homeless wandering around, so I admire her and she inspires me a lot.
