Describe your childhood/growing up years (8-13 years old):
I can describe my childhood as a typical story filled with memories of playing “larong pinoy” outdoors.

What lessons did you learn from your childhood/growing years?
I’ve learned from my childhood to value the simple things in life, like my complete family, and to have contentment with what we have right now.

Most memorable moment:
My most memorable moment so far was when my Mom and Dad bought new outfits to wear for my Mutya ng South Cotabato Coronation Night because they were so sure that I’d win.

Why do you want to be Miss Philippines Earth 2019?
I want to be Miss Philippines Earth 2020 because I know that I embody the true Earth Warrior. I’m eager to share my story and to inspire others to act, change, and transform. I want to turn every ideal into reality and the Miss Philippines Earth organization is a great platform to do such things.

What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
My environmental advocacy is Agri-Tourism (agricultural tourism). It shares a common voice in the significant economic benefits of the small and mid-scale farmers in promoting local products. Agri-Tourism can benefit rural farmers and landowners because it promotes product diversification and increases visibility and demand for products. In this sense, farmers are given more economic opportunities in developing their agricultural activities spring boarded from traditional farming.
