Early life[edit]

Born as Maria Margarita Amada Fteha Isidro, she is the fourth of the six children of Jose Isidro, an architect, and Palestinian mother Edwarta Fteha. She graduated from the University of the Philippines, Diliman with a Bachelor's Degree in Interior Design. Isidro also pursued Fashion Buying and Merchandising at Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, where she graduated as magna cumlaude. She also has a Master's degree in Communication from the Ateneo de Manila University.

Isidro started as a back-up singer together with her sisters Olive Cruz and Tina Isorena in the Sharon Cuneta Show. She was urged by Johnny Manahan or Mr. M to fill in for then pregnant Melissa de Leon in the noon time show 'Sang Linggo nAPO Sila. She was like a breath of fresh air and people started noticing her, hence, the moniker "Crush ng Bayan" or "the people's crush." She is best known for her role as Ingrid Martinez in the 2009 hit television series, Tayong Dalawa.

In 2012, she transferred to GMA Network and signed an exclusive contract in Kapuso Network, her first major project was the television series of GMA Network entitled, One True Love. She later returned to her original home network, ABS-CBN in 2013 as she makes a comeback project via Muling Buksan Ang Puso, starring Julia Montes, Enrique Gil and Enchong Dee.
