MANILA, Philippines - In line with the Miss Philippines Earth 2013 pageant's water conservation theme, this 20-year-old Tourism Management student says, "We need to nurture our water tables, because our life is connected to it."

Describe your childhood/growing-up years (8-13 years old):

I grew up in Germany and there, industrialization and environmental protection are well-balanced.

Most memorable moment:

It is my dad’s dream for me to be a beauty queen. The day before the coronation (of a pageant I joined), he passed away. I was crowned first runner-up.

What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?

Save a watershed, save the world. People take for granted the idea that watersheds are there to protect the storage of water.
