Describe your growing up years: I grew up in a home cocooned by a solid family life. Our visit to Disneyland and seeing all Disney characters during our vacation is a wonderful experience that I get to share with my family.
Most memorable moment: Winning one of the Palmolive Shining Circle of 10 held in ABS-CBN is my dream come true. Seeing my prize check bearing my name on it was a defining moment for me. It was a substantial worth of money for a student like me.
What is the most unusual thing you have ever done?: Taking home all the notebooks of my sick friend in grade school and writing all the lessons she missed.
What is your ambition in life?: I'd like to be a motivational speaker someday. To be able to communicate effectively and inspire other people on what I have achieved.
Why do you want to be Miss Philippines Eart 2014?:
I can be the next Miss Philippines Earth 2014 because I am driven with a sense of responsibility. My leadership ability is a true test of character and discipline to commit myself to tall orders. A balanced relationship and nourishing foundation from my family sustains my desire for this competition.
What is your environmental advocacy?: I would like to promote rainwater collection. This is to utilize harvested rainwater without the need of huge capital expenditure. I chose this advocacy because it appears to be one of the most promising alternatives for supplying freshwater in the face of increasing water scarcity and escalating demand.
What tip can you share to promote eco-tourism in your city/municipality/province?: We can showcase the uniqueness of my city by giving proper training to all officials and stakeholders in Eco-tourism. Give local communities a voice to enhance best practices for better information and marketing. Lastly, we should create a lesson from the good and bad examples; share it to create a database to upgrade our quality of service.
In these changing times, courage and clarity become even more important.
