Early life[edit]

Career[edit]

Wilson was offered numerous modeling projects since high school.

When she graduated, she was cast in a Pond's commercial. After which, she received more modeling and acting offers. Wilson is now the endorser of several products and brands in the Philippines such as Bench, Garnier, Technomarine, Ginebra San Miguel, Argentina Corned Beef, Fila, Belo Sexy Solutions, Cream Silk, American Apparel, Cadbury, Globe Tattoo, BlackBerry, Wade, SM Accessories, Pond's, Kashieca, Jaguar and so much more.
