Describe your childhood/growing up years (8-13 years old):
The year I turned 8, my family had just moved back to the Philippines (from living abroad). My brothers and I grew up in Zamboanga City. We lived in a small and simple place in the province, taking care of our 5 aspin dogs.

What lessons did you learn from your childhood/growing years?
Be kind, honest, and brave enough to spark a change.

Most memorable moment:
When I first watched this TV show on Discovery channel about the daily jobs of animal cops working for the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).

Why do you want to be Miss Philippines Earth?
Winning Miss Philippines Earth 2021 means more than just a title to me. This crown bears a responsibility to be more active in eco-friendly practices and inspire others to do the same. All my life I have strived to do my best for the environment in all these little ways, but I want to do so much more. With this platform, I hope to take greater action, to lead and inspire our fellow Filipinos in creating a cleaner, greener Philippines.

What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
My advocacy is to reduce plastic pollution. This is a mission that will address problem of plastic pollution at the individual and government levels. I will be a voice to inspire and enlighten the people to follow eco-friendly practices in their own homes. And I will work with authorities to implement laws and ordinances to guide the whole community to be plastic-free.
