Describe your childhood/growing up years (8-13 years old):
At an early age, I can conquer my stage fright and lack of confidence with my passion for singing. I also was so passionate about taking care of animals. As a child, I also dreamt of becoming an engineer to help build affordable, low-cost homes for the poor.

What lessons did you learn from your childhood/growing years?
I learned from my childhood that life isn’t about winning, it is about being happy and contented with what you achieved and that failure is a requisite for success.

Most memorable moment:
My most memorable moment was during my oath taking as a newly licensed Civil Engineer. It was at that moment that I saw tears with pure happiness from my father. On that day, I knew I made him proud.

Why do you want to be Miss Philippines Earth 2019?
Growing up, I was really looking for my purpose in life. I eventually realized that you shouldn’t look for one and that you should set your own purpose instead. I want to be Miss Philippines Earth 2020 because I saw that through this pageant, women can become a part of a social transformation and be an influence for change. With this, I am joining the Miss Philippines Earth 2020 pageant not just for its prestige, but also to give my contribution to its legacy through my advocacy.

What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
My environmental advocacy is to promote sustainable engineering along with gender mainstreaming. We, human beings, play an important role in the environment’s conservation. With my continuous participation as a gender and development advocate, I would like to stress the importance of gender mainstreaming in the protection of the environment and natural resources. Citizens' participation is vital in the process of achieving sustainable development and gender inequality persistently risks our success to attain such. Thus, with the identification of gender roles we can achieve our country’s goal to be sustainably developed while taking care of the environment.
