Describe your childhood/growing up years (8-13 years old):
Tough yet inspiring, my childhood years are always a test of what I am today. Growing up as an apple to the eyes of the bullies, I always feel belittled and scared from everything. Whether it’s in the school, organizations that I am joining, I find it tough to join a new environment because of my experiences, but what I learn from it is to strive hard to surpass all the pressure and battles that’s happening in my life, adding that my mom was an OFW at some point it makes me more vulnerable but I use it as an advantage to build the character that I have today.

What lessons did you learn from your childhood/growing years?
As an Ambitious child, I always want to be a good role model to my sister and be the best version of myself. Rediscovering myself again and again to know what I am truly capable of, as I grow up I understand that it takes a lot of time and patience to be what you want to be, and that is being patient, loving and conquering yourself is the best option to be your best version.

Most memorable moment:
To take one big step towards my dream, as I grew up I involved with theatre organizations that makes my life more exciting and fun, but what it teaches me the most. It teaches me to withstand all the adversaries to focus on my goal. My high school life was filled with excitement as I always lead the plays I’m involved to and I come to realize that I want to be a theatre actress in the future so last march 2019 I say to my friend that someday I will be performing on a real stage. I start my workshop on a theatre company by april 2019 and out of 200 participants I made it to the top 10. June 2019, I made that dream come true by performing on a real stage as a Theatre performer.

Why do you want to be Miss Philippines Earth?
Joining a pageant will always a dream come true of mine. If I have given a chance to and will be the next Miss Philippines Earth 2021, I see it as a great privilege and responsibility, also a training ground for more organizations and programs I will be joining in the future and to be the one with a helping hand for a certain cause. I know to myself I can use my platform to raise something significant because I have beauty with an impact.

What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
Heart for all; Animal Habitat Preservation is one of the most neglected issues here in our country, because of modernization like rampant deforestation , disease and pollution, animals have lost their source of food, resources and their home. Everyday more than one animal are prone to extinction that may lead to ecosystem failure. I believe uplifting this issue may help them to have a peaceful and comfortable place where they can live pleasant and harmonious.
