In an interview with BICOL STANDARD, Nathan's Aunt Mafe Santiago, who is based here, said that they were still overwhelmed by the judges' reaction.
Santiago said, however, that they had always known his nephew to be talented.

The proud aunt also described Nathan as a simple and smart kid.
"Nathan is truly a source of pride for Bicolanos. We hope that his achievement inspires more Bicolanos to fulfill their dreams," Santiago said.
She also expressed her gratitude to those who have been supporting Nathan.
