Kim Chiu is among the 12 young artists who were handpicked by Disney Channel Asia for their 2015 calendar. Chiu graces the calendar as the much-loved character Mulan. Given her Oriental looks, Kim perfectly fits the character that symbolises courage and selflessness in the tale based on the Chinese legendary figure Fa Mulan.  

“It is inspiring and motivating. It is about women empowerment, about family, about a daughter’s love for her father,” says Kim Chiu of her childhood memories of the Disney animated film about the princess named Mulan.

 “It is a really a nice story and a timeless movie (animation) that you can watch (and appreciate) if you’re four years old or you reach 60. You can still watch it and you’ll be inspired by the movie,” she adds.

The Disney princess’ story is somehow close to Kim’s journey as the then showbiz aspirant from Cebu to now established young actress. That’s why she never had second thoughts of getting on board the calendar project.

Kim Chiu is expected to be in Dubai next weekend for the Anta Presents Pinoy Fiesta 2015 at Zabeel Park on January 30.
