Describe your childhood/growing up years (8-13 years old):
I was born and raised in the Province of Roxas, Isabela where I spent my childhood growing up in a simple family who taught me how to respect others, to always be kind and to have a strong faith in God. Believing that no matter the problems I have, I will always remember that He is always there for us.

What lessons did you learn from your childhood/growing years?
I learned from my childhood to chase my dreams and to never give up. I learned about the value of hard work and the importance of sharing what I have to other people by helping others.

Most memorable moment:
My most memorable moment was when I was 18. I had an opportunity to live and work in the USA where I can help my family and be able to provide for my younger sister’s school fees where she graduated with flying colors. This was memorable because my sacrifices resulted in something good, especially for my sister.

What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
My advocacy is EDUCATION. I advocate for the need to integrate environmental education across all school curriculums with an emphasis on climate change education. I chose this because I was raised by my parents with a good understanding of the value of education. I believe that being educated about Climate Change would equip the young generation with the necessary knowledge and skills to protect and to promote the health and safety of our environment. Through this platform, I want the younger generation to explore environmental issues, to actively engage in addressing the world’s pressing environmental concerns and to think critically about ways to take action to protect Mother Earth.
