Describe your childhood/growing up years (8-13 years old):
When I was young, I was bullied and discriminated because of my skin color so I’ve always dream of being white when I was young.

What lessons did you learn from your childhood/growing years?
I’ve learned that having a dark skin is cool and I should be proud of having this kind of unique beauty. I also learned that I should be proud of being black because that serves as my asset.

Most memorable moment:
When I was able to join Showtime’s Tawag ng Tanghalan even if it was my first time joining a singing competition.

Why do you want to be Miss Philippines Earth 2018?
I want to join this pageant because I believe I have what it takes to be crowned as such. I am a nature lover and I believe, I can be a good role model to the society.

What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
Eradicating plastic wastes in the ocean. I chose this advocacy because garbage floating in the ocean slowly by slowly destroys our marine resources and considering that the Philippines is an archipelago and majority of our people live in coastal areas where fishing is their main source of living. We should protect and preserve the beauty of our bodies of water.
