Describe your childhood/growing up years (8-13 years old):
Growing up, I was a boyish girl, but my mother and my family encouraged me to join summer workshops like dancing, modeling and catwalk modeling and it molded me to become the woman I am today.
What lessons did you learn from your childhood/growing years?
I’ve learned from my childhood to value every moment that I spend with my family, because every moment that we are together is the best experience that I have ever had.
Most memorable moment:
My most memorable moment was winning my first crown at the age of 17. I garnered the title of Mutya ng Lungsod ng Tacurong 2014.
Why do you want to be Miss Philippines Earth 2019?
I want to be Miss Philippines Earth 2020 because I know that this pageant fights for the greater cause of preserving our planet. I want to be part of the solution by talking about my personal advocacy, which is the preservation of wildlife- particularly the birds.
What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
Tacurong City is home to 20,000 species of Egrets and Herons found at the Baras Birds Sanctuary and is considered as one of the wonders of Region XII. My advocacy focuses on the preservation of wildlife, especially these birds, for the future. I chose it because I want to protect the species of the birds and its habitat.
