Why do you want to be Miss Philippines Earth 2018?
I view Miss Philippines Earth 2018 not just as a beauty pageant but a pageant where you will be able to showcase not just what you can perform but what you're heart is passionate about - loving Mother Earth. It is a situation where you can be a winner without a crown. Because just being included in the official list of candidates is already a big achievement.

What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
I used to work as an office clerk under a Job Order in the office of a Brgy. Head for Solid Waste Management in Tagbilaran City Bohol. I was fascinated by the City's way of helping the environment free from littered wastes. They really promoted the awareness for the RA 9003 or Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000. I want this act to be realized not just in the city but in my town Bien Unido as well and hopefully in the whole province of Bohol. Therefore, my advocacy is promoting proper solid waste management through responsible segregation.
