Tell us a little something about your Country ?
The Philippines is a country full of warmth. Indeed, it isn’t only the weather that is warm, but the people as well. Filipinos love to connect with others. They are friendly, caring, generous, etc. They’re happy and gracious hosts.

Future ambitions ?
Generally speaking, my life ambition is to live up to my full potential, by using my talents to make a difference for the better. In the context of this pageant, the title of Miss World would enable me to become a goodwill ambassador and defend/promote the causes I believe in.

Social, confident and friendly. I love communicating and getting to know different people. Passionate and goal-oriented. When I set my mind on a goal, I put my heart into it; and when faced with challenges, I become very hard-working and ingenious because I believe “the joy of real success is worth

Personal Motto?
Never give up on your dreams. (Even when faced with what seems like an insurmountable wall; because the things that are most worth having are always the hardest to achieve.)

Favourite food ?
Spicy food (Thai), sweet food (pastries), comfort food (bread and pasta)

Favourite Music / Books ?
A lot of different music genres (depending on my mood), but Adele is an all-time favourite. As for the books, I like fantasy/adventure, the Harry Potter series is definitely an all time favourite as well.

Do you have any pets?
A mini cocker spaniel. Her name is Cannelle.
What is the proudest moment of your life or most memorable day?
My college graduation day. During my college days, I took on as much (multitasking to the point of having just enough time for sleep) and came out of it all very successfully.

Any other interesting facts ?
I am passionate about defending the causes I believe in. So last year, I joined the model United Nations Assembly. I chose the Human Rights Council and was elected the best debater.
