Describe your childhood/growing up years (8-13 years old):
As I was growing during my adolescent years, I was still inside my own shell, I wasn’t an outgoing and adventurous person but deep inside I have something that I wanted to express from within, and this is to become confident, to share to the outside world that I have talents and passion.

What lessons did you learn from your childhood/growing years?
I’ve learned a lot from my childhood years, since I have mentioned that I wasn’t an outgoing person, as I grew older to my high school days I became an active student, who joins a lot of organization, school projects and pageants, I became more eager to show and let myself out from my comfort zone, despite there are still times that I couldn’t talk in front of a huge crowd, I’ve learned that I can actually make it more than I have, and that’s the reason why I had the determination to join the pageant once again after my failures in school’s pageant and tried to join Binibining Urdaneta to show them that I am much more than myself yesterday. Most importantly, my advocacy was to implement a pro-environmentalist city and that’s the reason why I am pushing this pageant through because I know for myself that I suit in Miss Philippines Earth.

Most memorable moment:
The most memorable moment in my life were my challenges during in and outside school pageants. A lot of people looks down on me thinking that I was not suitable to join a pageant, I was criticized by how I walk and talk because I was always a shy person, but these were my greatest achievements in life that after several tries I finally won the title and it was even during the City’s huge pageant competition. I am so grateful and honored that I felt like this is the purpose that I keep failing because there was a bigger opportunity for me.

Why do you want to be Miss Philippines Earth?
I wanted to become Miss Philippines Earth 2021 because I was very into being an environmentalist, no matter what will happen to me, there are still a lot of people who looks forward and see me as their inspiration, and I’d like to become a good example to them and join actively in a lot of projects not only here in my city but also to my beloved country, Philippines.

What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
My environmental advocacy is to spread awareness, specifically the young generations because I believe that they are the future leaders and I will share my knowledge to them through social medias, since we are using technology, people nowadays love using the internet, I’d use this opportunity to voice out on how we can save ourselves and the mother earth, I wanted us to become the solution and not to become the pollution of this Earth.
