PHILIPPINES
ROXANNE ALLISON BAEYENS

Age: 23
Height: 168 cm
Measurements: 33 in - 24 in - 35 in

"Being an advocate for Urban Gardening and Agriculture (for regreening, food security, and providing livelihood) I expanded my horizon and am now an active volunteer and the face of Department of Agriculture - Cordillera. As an animal lover, I started the Stray-t from the heart program to feed strays and uplift animal rights. As the ambassadress of Zero Hunger Philippines, I am able to extend love to adversely affected families and most vulnerable communities amidst this Covid-19 pandemic. As a woman of the Earth, being kind and showing love to all people and beings is a rich gesture that could leave a substantial change in this world."

DESCRIBE YOUR CHILDHOOD/GROWING YEARS
I was already exposed to environmental responsibility as a child. Being around our garden where my mom normally spends her day was a great influence for me. It made me a plant lover as well as a nature lover in general, so much that I didn’t mind getting myself dirty as I slide through soil paths. I was also very adventurous and spent a lot of time making friends of different ages.

WHAT IS YOUR MEMORABLE MOMENT?
When I landed my first ever commercial job. It was so memorable for the main reason that I dropped my life in my hometown to move to Manila and pursue acting. That day made me realize that there are a lot of risks worth taking because dreams really do come true. My family was so happy and they haven’t stopped supporting me since then.

ANY SPECIAL STORIES OR FACTS ABOUT YOUR FAMILY?
My mom used to work for the princess of Belgium, that’s what paved a way for her and my dad to meet. Me and my siblings are very close and all academically competitive in our family. My mom is an Environmentalist and my greatest influence.

WHAT IS THE MOST UNUSUAL THING YOU HAVE EVER DONE?
Milk a cow the old fashioned way. It was unusual since I have never done it before in my life, but it was also a fun experience.

WHAT IS YOUR ADVOCACY?
Urban Gardening and Agriculture

WHAT TIPS CAN YOU SHARE TO PROMOTE ECOTOURISM & CLIMATE CHANGE?
If our global response to this Pandemic is the same as our response to Climate change, then we could have a shot to prevent it’s worsening. Climate Change is a big problem too and there’s a lack of action from us humans. If we choose to open our eyes and be alarmed, then nature would continue to heal even after lockdowns have been lifted. As for Ecotourism, this is one of the best practices for sustainability and to achieve it we have to be more educated. As the general public, we could also increase its demand if we show more interest with Ecotourism in solidarity. It gives livelihood, and funds destinations for preservation. It would be a great help not only for our environment, but also for the locals.

WHAT MAKES YOU PROUD OF YOUR COUNTRY?
Having amazing, resilient, and optimistic countrymen who always finds a reason to continue smiling despite hindrances in life makes me proud of my country. Mostly I’m proud of how warm Filipinos are not only to our kind, but to other nationalities. As they say, being kind is one of the richest things we could have that no one can take away from us.

WHAT CAN YOU PROMOTE ABOUT YOUR COUNTRY?
I can promote the aesthetic mountain sceneries with the great biodiversity, as well as the breath taking beaches with rich marine life that would really make anyone’s jaw drop.

WHAT TRIVIA ABOUT YOURSELF WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE?
Being a ballerina was a big part of my life until I shifted to my passion of becoming a theater actress. I took up my course knowing the importance of education, but I knew in my heart that I wanted to pursue my passion in acting. After graduation I took a leap of faith and watched my dreams come true.
