Describe your childhood/growing up years (8-13 years old):
During my childhood years, I have to stay at home most of the time for security reasons. Thus, my siblings became my playmates as well. It was actually difficult at first because I can see kids at my age around our neighborhood having fun playing outside. But despite my situation, what I appreciate the most was that I was able to understand my parents and the way they raised me. I am who I am today because of my family, especially my parents.
What lessons did you learn from your childhood/growing years?
The lesson that I have learned from my childhood was that even if you are in a situation wherein you don't understand things and what’s happening, all you have to do is trust God, trust the people you love, and the people who love you- most especially your parents. Because I believe that if you will change the way you look at things, the things you look at will change.
Most memorable moment:
My most memorable moment was when I joined my first ever pageant. I was so young back then, but I've already received a lot of criticisms because people said I lack some of the qualities that a beauty queen should have. But it didn't stop me from working hard and improving myself. Fortunately, all my hard work paid off and I won my first ever crown. It is more memorable because that experience helped develop who I am today, not just as a beauty queen but also as a person.
Why do you want to be Miss Philippines Earth 2019?
I want to be Miss Philippines Earth 2020 because I believe that this is the best platform to promote my advocacy. If I become the next Miss Philippines Earth, I would like to hold up the importance of awareness about marine biodiversity. I will integrate people by building resilient and resistant communities to help in protecting our environment. I would also create a community symposium focusing on the protection of the environment.
What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
My environmental advocacy is SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT AND FOOTPRINT AWARENESS OF MARINE BIODIVERSITY. The concept of sustainable development can be interpreted in many different ways, but at its core, it is an approach to development that looks to balance different and often competing needs against an awareness of the environmental limitations we face in society.
