Zahra Bianca Saldua, also known as “Z”, has been hosting for ten years, which led her to become a TV personality: as a Courtside Reporter for the NCAA, UAAP, Shakey’s VLeague and ASEAN Basketball League, a Quiz Master of UNTV’s Campus Challenge, Host of Solar’s Philippine Poker Tour, and even a News Anchor for PTV4’s Newslife. She has also appeared in Philippine Movies, TV Series and Commercials.

Other than her career in media and the liberal arts, Z has always had a gift in business. She became head of sales for the Philippines Poker Tour and World Poker Tour National Philippines and sales representative for Manila Broadcasting Company and Rivals Sports Network. She also shares her talent by being a marketing/sales/events consultant to various companies. She still makes time to be one of the founders of NUGIRLS, an online global business that represents world-class products for beauty, wellness, and fitness.
She even dabbled in pageantry, as she became Miss World Philippines Second Princess back in 2013 with Megan Young, acquiring awards such as Miss Friendship and Miss Pantene. After 5 years, she joined Miss Earth Philippines 2018 and has garnered the title of MISS AIR PHILIPPINES 2018. In the mentioned pageant, she has also gotten the following special awards: Gold Award in Talent, Silver Award for Darling of the Press, and Top 10 in Beauty of Face and Poise and Top 10 in Q & A.
She was also a resident host for SM Cyberzone’s official web show Bits and Bytes, which ran for 3 seasons. She is also a Social Media Influencer with her own blog and, soon, her own vlog.
Her experience as a host in the events management industry and her gift in business, has led her to start ZS TEAM, which provides talent management, events management, and digital marketing services.
Other than being in the events and entertainment industry, Z ventured in other things that are close to her passion.
She established another business for training domestic workers for the local and foreign markets. Her company’s name is Enhanced Skills Training and Assessment Center Corporation, of which she is the co-founder and Vice President of. She also became an official business partner of Joseph Gonzalez for his industrial design business Manolo Living, bringing modern Filipino furniture and designs worldwide.
Outside of the limelight and the hustle and bustle of the business world, Z has many advocacies such as being a Youth Ambassador, an Environmental Advocate, a Financial Literacy and Entrepreneurship Advocate, as well as Blood Donation.
She also has a strong sense of patriotism, which led her to continue her love for helping others in need and her fellow country men and women by joining the Philippine Army Command Reserve, of which she has been commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant.
