Why do you want to be Miss Philippines Earth 2018?
In order to influence I should be influential. To be Miss Philippines Earth 2018, is an instrument for me to influence people to be a catalyst of change, where we can share a vision to make this world a healthy place to live in even in a simple but collective way. It is also an opportunity for me to get to discover more about life and its beauty.
What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
My advocacy as a woman of the earth whose passion is inspired by my conviction to help save our environment is reforestation, a way to rebuild and replenish our depleted forests since they are the lifeblood of our planet. Rebuilding the ecosystem of forest where trees facilitate biosequestration of atmospheric carbon monoxide and prevent global warming, is something I am passionate about. Replenishing our forest comes from heartfelt conviction by joining tree planting activities on locations where deforestation occured. It takes a strong commitment to turn this advocacy into a moving force of change to save our forests, the very lifeblood of mother earth. I want to organize youth volunteer groups that would work with government agencies and our LGU in Passi in pursuing tree planting that supports reforestation advocacy. It takes true passion to plant a seed and another one that leads to nurturing our conviction to rebuild our forest. I will be brave enough to lead the movement for reforestation campaign in our city and hopefully let the world see what we've started.
