MANILA, Philippines - In line with the Miss Philippines Earth 2013 pageant's water conservation theme, this  18-year-old Tourism Management student says, "This year is the celebration for the International Year of Water Cooperation. Thus, we should help build understanding, unity, mutual reverence, sympathy, and reliance in the country for water security."

Jessa originally declared that she would be representing the municipality of Boljoon in Cebu but changed it to Consolacion, Cebu according to Miss PH Earth organizers.

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

I’m a very competitive person, most especially in school. I didn’t even like modelling and pageants before because I had stage fright and I was more of a tomboy.

Most memorable moment:

When I was elected as a Sangguniang Kabataan councilor in our barangay.

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

Sustaining and protecting the environment for future generations is my chosen advocacy because it emphasizes the need to conserve the environment, so that future generations can enjoy what we are enjoying today.
