Describe your childhood/growing up years (8-13 years old):
I grew up on the countryside and spent most days in the farm with my grandparents. I have learned life skills from them. I have also been bullied growing up because I looked different from my playmates.

What lessons did you learn from your childhood/growing years?
I have learned to value all kinds of life. It doesn’t matter whether it is in human form, or in the form of animals and nature. Each plays a vital role in the world and hold their own value which must be cherished.

Most memorable moment:
My most memorable moment was losing the first job I had after graduating due to the pandemic. It had a great impact on my financial needs but this challenge in life has made me more resilient and creative in looking for ways to survive. It also helped me get more in touch with nature once again as I have started planting again.

Why do you want to be Miss Philippines Earth?
I want to be Miss Philippines Earth 2021 because this pageant is a good platform to promote my advocacy. It will help me reach a larger demographic and let the whole country know and be aware of the things they can do to help improve the air quality in our nation as a whole.

What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
My environmental advocacy is air purification and conservation. I chose this because one of the biggest challenges that our country is facing is our battle against air pollution. The level of contaminants in the air we breathe is increasing at an alarming rate and I believe we should take this more seriously and provide solutions to help improve air quality in our country. Better air quality results not only to better human health. It also benefits Mother Earth.
