Describe your childhood/growing up years (8-13 years old):
I grew up with my grandparents and was transferred to Tondo ever since my parents got separated. I experienced all the street games (larong pambata).

What lessons did you learn from your childhood/growing years?
Growing up with my grandparents made me realize how important life is, especially growing up surrounded by squatter areas that affected their health due to the poor environment.

Most memorable moment:
My most memorable moment was the day my family and friends congratulated me for passing my licensure examinations. I will always value and be proud of the profession I have pursued.

Why do you want to be Miss Philippines Earth 2019?
I have been so passionate spending time in nature and one of the reasons why is my cherished childhood memories from my experiences in nature together with my grandparents. They were my gatekeepers to nature and it just saddens me to see that the younger generations, especially those within the city, have fewer experiences with actual nature because of technology. I want to be Miss Philippines Earth 2020 because I want to serve the children and do share to them what my grandparents have imparted on me- the love of nature. By having this opportunity, I will make sure that I will fulfill my advocacy and carry the crown with utmost dignity as it is not only a title, but a great responsibility which is to serve the environment.

What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
My environmental advocacy is Public Health & Wellness – As a registered nurse, I believe that the Health and Wellness of human beings is an important issue, especially since we just experienced a pandemic. We are all aware that the world’s climate is changing with extreme weather and unhealthy air, and these changes are creating new health risks. Having another outbreak like the Corona Virus is a huge possibility and we know how much it has affected us all. Being a nurse, I advocate for health teachings to the marginalized communities by showing them good health habits and routines that will increase community resilience and readiness for responding to an outbreak.
