Her mother, Joan Lorraine, is the founding creative director of One Mega Group which releases magazines such as Meg, Travel, Lifestyle Asia and Mega. She is also a ramp model, gracing the L' Oreal Look of Style Awards in 2012 in below photo.

In Youtube video below, the pretty mestiza joins the talk show "the Girls of 28 a" as she talks about the pros and cons of dating older men.

Her godmother, Sari Yap, appeared on TV and said that Helena suffers from bipolar disorder. She alleged that the Filipina-American mestiza model may have mixed anti-depressants with alcohol.

I fear that cases of youth suicides may be on the rise. Sigh! It's a such terrible loss when someone so young and so full of promise suddenly meets death. I sympathize with her family, loved ones, friends and fans. Rest in peace!
