Ms PH Earth San Nicolas, Batangas: Christine Alvaira
NAME: Christine Angel de Ramos Alvaira
MUNICIPALITY OR CITY: San Nicolas, Batangas
How she describes her childhood: I grew up in a very simple life in San Nicolas. We are just near Taal lake, so I used to swim with my cousins anytime we wanted, pick fresh fruits from our backyard, and play traditional games like patintero, piko, etc. I can say that I had a great childhood in San Nicolas. Peaceful and full of love.
Lessons learned from childhood: I learned a lot during my growing years, but the most important things I learned were to be brave, strong and faithful to God. I am an only child and I grew up away from my parents, and that made me stronger, braver and closer to God all the time.
Environmental advocacy: My environmental advocacy is to promote proper waste disposal and recycling to maximize utilization of valuable resources and encourage resource conservation recovery. It will not only help us prevent flooding and clogging of drainages, but it will also lead us to lessen the pollution so as to uphold environmental awareness and actions. – Rappler.com
