Why do you want to be Miss Philippines Earth?
Personally I believe that it’s a great platform for me to realize my personal advocacy which is community building through environmental protection. This is a simple program yet remains to be valued and prioritized. As I venture in this environmental journey, I am certain that I can bring back the lost glory that was once owned by mother nature. I want to influence young people like me to be the voice of this generation for we are the future leaders of our country.

What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
Community Building through environmental protection and conservation because I am challenged and at the same time, called to serve my fellow Filipinos to build community and empower green hands through a wide range of community campaigns. Grow-a-tree project and save-water movement are some of the basic steps. This heroic act gives so much joy to my heart knowing that I am not only doing things for my personal satisfaction but also to be of help to others, for it is in caring that we restore humanity, much more our mother nature.

What tip can you share to promote eco-tourism in your City or Municipality?
Developing Cultural and Environmental Education and posting signages and infographics (are some ways to promote ecotourism).
