Describe your childhood/growing up years (8-13 years old):
When I was 8 we lived at Cebu for three years every year we moved to other municipality but my childhood was full of adventures. We often play at the bukid, go to the beach and at the river. My Dad was an ambulance driver and then he became a multicab driver where me and my siblings often go with him all the way to Naga City.

What lessons did you learn from your childhood/growing years?
I have learned to be responsible, productive, independent, and be patient with a lot of things.

Most memorable moment:
It would be the time when I finally had clarity and talked with my Mom and Dad about why they broke up.

Why do you want to be Miss Philippines Earth?
I should be the next Miss Philippines Earth because I know in myself that I am an Earth warrior, I have strong compassion towards protecting and preserving our nature and I strongly believe that I am a woman for a cause and with purpose.

What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
My advocacy is Environmental and Social Sustainability towards Responsible Tourism. I chose this because most tourist and even local people often forgot on how to become a responsible individual when it comes to protecting and preserving our natural environment.
