Describe your childhood/growing up years (8-13 years old):
Under the heat of the midday sun, with a lot of laughter and screams of children who plays down the street. A cold bath in the rain while splashing water on my face, the flying hanger when I don’t take a nap during “siyesta”, and the told horror stories when the electricity went out. I could clearly remember these precious moments, and I will treasure it as a one of a kind experience that is enjoyable, and carefree moments in my heart as the foundation in who am I today and who would be in the future.

What lessons did you learn from your childhood/growing years?
It is often said that growing up takes courage to express who you really are beyond what others expected you to be. That’s why my parents didn’t ever try to change me as who am I, but rather they make me realize to weigh the things which are valuable. However, sometimes you will never knew the value of the moment until it becomes a memory. It will take you back but it is up to you to get your act together or not. And I chose to change for better, a focus on not fighting the old but building the new. I have accepted fear as part of my life, a fear that comes from within, the fear of falling short, the fear of failure, and the fear of not measuring up. If others doubt how far you can go, then go so far so that you can’t hear them anymore. Every day is a battlefield that neither we win or lose, it is the fight that made us stronger and better. That’s why today, it is our GOLDEN YEARS to value the time in making things happen with the people who will make us or even break us.

Most memorable moment:
Stepping out of my comfort zone is a great challenge that I never thought I couldn't make. That's why when I won my first ever title as Bb. Mojon 2019, it became a turning point for me to live a life with a purpose. It opens not just doors of opportunities for myself but also helps me to turn my vision into action in establishing impact in my community.

Why do you want to be Miss Philippines Earth?
Since then I always have in mind that I have a voice, and to be a Miss Philippines Earth is a great platform to amplify it. This burden is a responsibility that I want share with others as their spokesperson, in order to provide something positive and achieve a sustainable-progressive development.

What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
My advocacy is ECO-nvert, it is a program that aims to spread biocentric worldviews about environmental issues that encourages to adopt more environmentally sensitive attitudes. Through the help of Enactus Philippines which is the organization that I work with, we wanted to create solutions not just to address climate change but also to leave an impact to the community by establishing a livelihood toward sustainable growth. Just like the conversion of plastics into local products like eco-friendly bags and wallets, and the generation of our plantable paper through paper wastes.
