Describe your childhood growing years:
I was a very outgoing kind of kid. I wasn’t very shy and would participate in a lot of co-curricular activities in school. I was already a dreamer that loved the stage then. I would be lightly bullied at some point but I would take it as if I was the lead role in a movie.
 
What lessons did you learn from your childhood?
I have learned that it is possible to be a complete individual even though your family isn’t. People around you don’t define who you are. I have learned to be independent very early but most of all, I have learned about the true meaning of an unconditional love.
 
Any special facts or story about your family?
My mom is a single parent. She bravely raised me and my brother alone.
 
What is the most unusual thing you have ever done?
Cry over sushi.
 
What is your most memorable moment?
The crowning moment last May for Ms. Philippines Earth. It was a precious moment where a beautiful dream became a reality. It was a fulfillment rooted in humility, hard work, commitment and love.
 
What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
I chose to continue the advocacy I started when I was just a candidate for Miss Philippines Earth. These were Restoration, Reforestation, minimizing carbon footprints and taking 5R (Rethink, Reuse, Reduce, Recycle, Respect) by heart which brings me to a campaign I call #WEWILLBECAUSEWECAN. This campaign aims to inspire and educate people on how they can contribute in helping the environment in their own little ways and even through social media. Getting the campaigns online is a strategy to get the message out there and create more awareness. Awareness or identifying the problem is the first step in solving the problem. We have to educate people about the threats of Climate Change because it is only through an educated society can true reform be achieved.
 
What can you promote about your country?
The Philippines is blessed with Natural Resources and remarkable people. With our beautiful country and culture, our Eco-Tourist spots are something worth experiencing. Eco-Tourism in our country shares a place where culture and nature is preserved and where you and nature can connect. This is definitely a haven for respect for nature, animals and its people.
