Describe your childhood/growing up years (8-13 years old):
I grew up in a small barangay in Silang and lived with my parents and older sister. What’s nice living in a province is that you and your relative’s houses are just around each other’s home that’s why I grew up having memories with them. I played and enjoy my childhood with my cousins just around the neighborhood playing the traditional games we play on the street.

What lessons did you learn from your childhood/growing years?
We should overcome difficulties. This world isn’t easy. And our lives are defined by how we respond to our challenges and obstacles. There were numerous times growing up when money was really tight. Nonetheless, my parents were content in it. Their example has taught me the value of working hard and pursuing lasting significance over worldly success. Growing up, I believe in the positive saying “Miracle is another word for Hardwork”. I think that it is a fact. When we have done our best and also the maximum effort of ours, we can get the maximum result as well as our hardwork. By this, the maximum result can be called as miracle. When such like miracle exist, your hardwork paid off.

Most memorable moment:
My most memorable moment is when I started to earn my own money while working in a coffee shop and as an English teacher to Korean students before I graduated in college. I had a chance to provide some of my family needs in my own little way.

Why do you want to be Miss Philippines Earth?
I want to be Miss Philippines Earth 2021 because I want to advocate and influence my community and the nation to strengthen their commitment in protecting the earth in all levels. We all should achieve the happiness and satisfaction while resolving and prioritizing the environment communities including the economy with the help of each other.

What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
My advocacy is Youth Environmental Awareness. As a public servant in our community I’ am yearning to encourage the youth to play an active role in protecting and improving the environment. Young people constitute a large part of the nation's population and young people will have to live longer with the consequences of current environmental decisions than will their elders. Environmental protections is a broad subject problems that are rising day by day and everyone is concerned about global warming and climate change as globally, local and national environmental problems are less concern. We do believe that the youth are the back bone of the nation. They can change the future of the society with their well-being and through their responsible behavior. Present day youth know that this is not the time to sit back and expect things to change themselves, but for me every single day is always a beginning. Young people should step up first and create direct impact and influence their parents and their community.
