What lessons did you learn from your childhood/growing years?
Life is always teaching us lessons when we don’t want to learn anything. If there is a thing I’ve learned in my childhood is that it’s okay if you will fall and make mistakes. Growing up I have realized that when you make mistakes it makes you even stronger and better person with worth and value. If you are not making mistakes, it means you are not trying hard enough. As I said there is nothing wrong with failing, you will fail many times in life, but you will pick up yourself up and become stronger and wiser for each trouble that you will pass. So, don’t stop learning because life won’t stop teaching.

Most memorable moment:
Joining a beauty pageant was never been my options, or even in things to do bucket list. That is why I consider a memorable moment whenever I join pageants, because in that way I can show the real me, what’s behind those four walls of mine.

Why do you want to be Miss Philippines Earth?
Why do you want to be Miss Philippines Earth 2021? : Having the title of Miss Philippines Earth 2021 is forever but the crown is not. I have realized that beauty pageants is not a home for beauties but it’s a home to build a woman with worth and values that she embodies. I am a woman of the Earth, and with that I want to be the catalyst for a positive change in our environment, if given a chance to be crowned as your next Miss Philippines Earth, I will raise my words not voice through actions, we must be the change we want to see the world. So I believe that it is the right time for us to hear our Mother Earth’s cry. Let’s together nurture our nature so that we can have a better future.

What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
As this Co-Vid 19 arises, our lives has change in just a short period of time, that we were not able to notice that we also harm our water forms and landforms. The increase use of biochemical waste and hazards such medical tools like gloves, masks and medicines makes the increase use of biochemical waste and hazards which we throw it to our landforms and water forms .And as someone, who comes from the coastal area, it is my hope that we may avoid the destruction of these God’s masterpiece. I am pursuing for the protection of our landforms and water forms against biochemical waste and hazards. We are the stewards of the Earth so we must be responsible with it.
