Describe your childhood/growing up years (8-13 years old):
Many ask me about my name which is H.R.H. and it means Her Royal Highness, my dad and also my brother has H.R.H. in their names, my dad placed it in our names because my dad was an adopted prince in Borneo. Also I got the love for pageantry because of my sister, when she was a teenager she also kept on joining pageants and she was the Face of Barbie in her teenage days.

What lessons did you learn from your childhood/growing years?
I have learned how to be happy as a kid, but also the most important thing I have discovered in me, in an early age I learned how to endure, especially in difficult trials in life.

Most memorable moment:
The most memorable moment for me is when my family was still complete, we all took photos with smiles on our faces. For me being complete is one of the most great memories that up until now I will never forget and will forever cherish.

Why do you want to be Miss Philippines Earth?
I joined Miss Philippines Earth because for me being a Ms. Philippines Earth could be used as a great platform in showing how we can be a great help to our Earth, on how we can preserve our Mother Nature by creating programs that could serve as a change to our environment. The most important issue we should consider is our health and that is why making our environment a safe place to live will be a way on how we can take care of our health. I aspire to be Ms. Philippines Earth because I embody a woman who cares for our nature and most especially has a heart for different kinds of people.

What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
My environmental Advocacy is Project Community Clean Up, this advocacy is making our community a beautiful and clean place to live. All could be part of community clean up by sweeping the streets and encouraging others to throw trash and to learn how to segregate waste properly. This advocacy could make a difference to see our surroundings as a healthy and safe place.

What tip can you share to promote eco-tourism in your City or Municipality?
The tips I can share to promote eco-tourism in our environment is promotion of the safety protocols, we would all feel at ease in travelling to different kinds of eco-friendly places if we learn how to follow the safety protocols and of course CLAY GO, which means clean as you go, wherever places we may be we should never forget the proper way of throwing trashes. Let us learn to preserve the beauty of our environment so others may see how beautiful the places are here in our City.
