Describe your childhood/growing up years (8-13 years old):
I cannot say that I had a happy childhood because I consider my childhood days as the most difficult time in my life because I encountered many problems especially with my dad. Growing up, I was a bubbly girl with the small amount of friends, my mother taught me to study hard before and she said that it was the most important thing to do before anything else and due to that, I became an introvert person because I had no time to make friends that much. I always value the time and exerted effort to become an honor student. Despite of having problems in my family, my mom and my sisters became my weapon to stand up and live this childhood of mine happily, they were the only people who became my motivation to grow up as a nice woman.

What lessons did you learn from your childhood/growing years?
One lesson that I’ve learned from my childhood is to be humble all the time. It’s very important to have a good heart all the time. I’ve learned from my mother that no matter how far you go, your feet should always remain on the ground. And this learning is something that I always bring anywhere.

Most memorable moment:
The most memorable moment I’ve ever experienced is when I finally received a crown in my head. I always want to do pageants and I never won, It makes me a bit sad but I decided to work hard, when I got a crown, It is a memory that I will never forget in my entire life because of the happiness that I’ve felt.

Why do you want to be Miss Philippines Earth?
I want to be Miss Philippines Earth 2021 because It is my calling, I believe that it’s my time to help our environment and to promote my advocacy that will benefit not only the community but the environment itself. This will be the way for me to showcase my purpose in life and to show to the people that it all comes from the Earth.

What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
The environmental advocacy that I chose is soil conservation or love for the soil. I chose this advocacy because I’ve realized that the nation’s soil is the foundation of our world, it is one thing that can balance our climate and solve our issues like massive erosion, the problem that we always have. I believe that if we get to fix the soil, we can fix our ecological issues. We need to be a living ecosystem where regeneration will replenish and repair the damages that we have done to our lovely Earth.
