As a child who came from a very poor family isn’t easy and it takes a lot of patience, kindness and courage to understand your situation and stood up and fight for your dreams to be able to achieve your goals every step of the way because in success there will always be no shortcuts, you have to go to the long path to be able to learn, grow and foster positivity in life.

Why do you want to be Miss Philippines Earth?
Being the Miss Philippines Earth 2021 is both an honor and a responsibility.

I, soon to be Miss Philippines Earth 2021, ready to be fearless, to spread love and compassion and believe that my purpose and reason in joining Miss Philippines Earth will create a change called possible.
