MANILA, Philippines - In line with the Miss Philippines Earth 2013 pageant's water conservation theme, this 19-year-old Business Administration student says, "Teach young ones to have proper discipline and to respect nature so that as early as now, they can be aware on how important water is and how it can affect our health when it is polluted."

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

I come from a poor family. I grew up with an extended family. My father is a driver and my mother is a housewife. I studied in public schools and was always a top student. I am a simple girl with great dreams.

Most memorable moment: 

My birthday last October 4, 2012 was memorable because I got news that I would compete in a pageant.

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

Sharing knowledge on how to conserve energy. I chose this advocacy because I want people to be aware of how to conserve energy and how to make it their daily habit. It will help them save money and even avoid possible accidents.
