Ms PH Earth Cainta, Rizal: Maria Jenny Gonzalez
NAME: Maria Jenny Gonzalez
MUNICIPALITY OR CITY: Cainta, Rizal
Describe your childhood: My childhood consisted mostly of family gatherings which formed great bonding with my relatives. I believe that forming that entrenched bond with your immediate and extended family is a valuable foundation to have. It allows you to possess good self-esteem and confidence which allows you to share the blessings, love, and knowledge you have gained in your life to the people around you.
What lessons did you learn from you childhood?: As I was growing up, my mother and grandmothers instilled in me that love, care and respect for everyone irrespective of their age, race and socioeconomic status are the most important values that should guide me through life.
What is your most memorable moment? : My most memorable moment was the time when I was given the amazing opportunity to represent Cainta, Rizal for Miss Philippines Earth 2014.
What is your environmental advocacy?: Addressing climate change: with education; by choice. Education whether it's through school or merely through parenting is a very significant contribution everyone in the world should be endowed with. Once we have a better educated global community, we are then able to make informed decisions to make a difference; to make a choice to love, protect and save our earth; to make a choice to harm our earth no more; to make a choice for our future generations that they will have an earth to live on.
In these changing times, courage and clarity become even more important.
