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?
