Describe your childhood/growing up years (8-13 years old):
I grew up in the province because my parents left me and my siblings in the care of my grandparents. We lived in the middle of the farm and we don’t even have electricity at that time which means that I grew up with no gadgets so we were able to focus on our studies. I was able to enjoy my childhood by climbing trees to get fruits and I also enjoyed the fresh air away from the city. I graduated Valedictorian during grade school. I was just 10 years old back then and the youngest in our batch. When I turned 11, I moved to the city to study at a university where I got my scholarship. I was an athlete and at the same time I was able to excel in my studies. I participated in some extra-curricular activities like painting and sketching. I also graduated with honors during high school.
What lessons did you learn from your childhood/growing years?
I learned that we don’t have to live in luxury in order to enjoy life.
Most memorable moment:
My most memorable moment is the first time I joined a beauty pageant and even got one of the crowns among the 18 lovely candidates.
Why do you want to be Miss Philippines Earth 2018?
I want to call for unity in saving our planet through my advocacy. And not just that, winning the crown will bring pride to my province and also to my family.
What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
“To promote the use of eco-friendly products to contribute to the sustainability of our environment.”
I chose this advocacy because when we choose to use more environmentally safe products, we reduce pollution and contamination of the natural resources such as the air, water, and soil.
