MANILA, Philippines - In line with the Miss Philippines Earth 2013 pageant's water conservation theme, this 24-year-old entrepreneur says, "We can start visiting schools, universities, and companies to educate them in promoting water cooperation."

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

I spent my childhood helping take care of my siblings. I had a happy childhood.

Most memorable moment:

I had mixed emotions while marching towards the stage during my college graduation. Not long after, I gave my mom a simple present after I received my first salary. She was so happy, she almost cried.

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

To plant more trees. Having more trees means saving more lives. To promote handicrafts using recycled and unwanted materials to reduce garbage and other pollution. It would also mean jobs for jobless people and out-of-school youths.
