Primary details

Bea Soriano is the daughter of General Jefferson Soriano and Eleanor Soriano. Her elder sister is Charo Soriano, who is a former volleyball superstar and current head coach of the Ateneo women's volleyball team that won the championship in the first conference of the Shakey's V-League Season 8.

Education

Soriano took up bachelor of science in psychology at the Ateneo de Manila University. She planned to go to medical school after her pre-med degree but continued her modeling career instead.

Career

Soriano is part of the Professional Models Association of the Philippines (PMAP) and is one of the long-time faces endorsing Penshoppe. Soriano is prolific in her public appearances mainly through print advertisements, television commercials, and ramp modeling. She is constantly featured in “best-dressed” lists and “style icon” polls on Stylebible.ph (online counterpart of Preview Magazine ) and magazines such as Candy, Chalk, and Preview. She has graced the cover of magazines such as Look and Metro Society. She also guested on NU 107's The Magazine Show with another prominent personality in Philippine young and hip culture, Raymond Gutierrez (Preview Magazine society editor and columnist for The Philippine Star). Despite her relatively low-profile presence, Soriano can constantly be seen in the inner circles of Philipine a-list personalities like Gutierrez, Liz Uy, Solenn Heussaff, Tim Yap, Belle Daza, and Anne Curtis. Contented with modeling, she has no plans to follow most of her circle's high-profile friends into showbiz.
