Ms PH Earth Tungawan, Zamboanga Sibugay: Cesdianne Daung
NAME: Cesdianne Z. Daung
MUNICIPALITY OR CITY: Tungawan, Zamboanga Sibugay
Environmental advocacy: I picture Tungawan as the perfect place I want to live in. My advocacy is to have a clean environment because a lot can contribute if we have a clean environment. It is pollution free, eco friendly, healthy lifestyle and everybody lives longer.
My municipality takes pride in its rich coastal and marine resources. We have the beautiful Bangaan Island which we consider a marine sanctuary, and Looc-Labuan which, given time, could compete with the country’s best beach resorts. As Miss Tungawan, I would like to promote cleanliness, especially in these areas, and lead the information drive on how the development of eco-tourism creates an impact in the lives of the people.
Most memorable moment: When I met my dad.
Career/Occupation: Office Management Student, Ateneo de Zamboanga University
Why do you want to be Miss Philippines-Earth 2014? I want to become Miss Philippines Earth 2014 because I want to be more effective in my campaign in preserving Mother Earth. I have always dreamed to be an instrument to promote the eco-tourism spots in my municipality. As we all know, Tungawan and the rest of the Zamboanga Peninsula is known all throughout the country as a conflict area. I would like to change the negative connotation of the people and the rest of the world about my beautiful place. I would like to show them that we have so much to offer and that we have so much potential, and that my municipality is a paradise waiting to be discovered.
Tips to promote eco-tourism: The locals are the best advertisers of their own land. Before we invite others, I strongly believe that our people should know first what we want everybody to know because automatically, once the people see something good happening around them, they will tell everyone about it. So everything starts with me, and transcends to the people around me. – Rappler.com
