I start competing in pageant in the age of 3 I join several beauty pageant in the Philippines, when we move here in the U.S I continue joining pageants.
World Class Beauty Queens: What inspired you to do pageant?
My Inspiration is my family, relatives and friends, and the children in the Philippines I grow up seeing and experiencing the life they have there it’s a simple life but yet full of dreams. I want to inspire them that dreams do come true in the right time in the right place. When we moved to U.S. I joined local and states pageants and started collecting crowns because I remember when I join pageant in the Philippines the event organizer have to rent crowns for awards. After the pageant the winners had to return the crowns to the event organizer, buying real crowns is very expensive there and I said to myself one day when I come visit my hometown in the Philippines I want to be able to donate crowns and have a a free pageant there, in that case they don’t have to rent crowns and the winning Queen can keep there crowns and treasure it.
World Class Beauty Queens: Why did you choose to compete for your current title?
I choose to compete in little Miss Earth USA because Its a lot of fun and it's a good experience. For me I always believed that being in a pageant is not about beauty It's more about service to the community, it’s about being a role model and making a big difference. It's not the crown you wear but the difference you make while your wearing the crown. I loved meeting people from all around the United States, who I would normally not have an opportunity to meet and I loved how welcoming everybody was to our family no matter what our backgrounds and cultures.

My Platform says “SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT Save our Earth”. I believe that we as individuals are dependent on our nature. In short nature is our life. My Aim is to share awareness with all the young children about the ESSENCE of ENVIRONMENT to humanity and be one of the “ENVIRONMENTAL SOLDIERS” to save our Earth. Let’s all apply the 3rs of environmental reduce, reuse, recycle. Always Remember that all living things including humans are all beneficiary of nature. Nature has a 4 Elements “Water, Air, Fire and Land” which means all are in balance to this Planet. If one element will destroy there are no replacement to this. Through my advocacy I will start my awareness at home, at school and to the entire country so that all young children can gain knowledge about our nature and it's time to spread the awareness. We need to remember that WE ARE THE ONE WHO WILL PROTECT AND RESTORE THE BEAUTY OF OUR NATURE!
“Let’s Save the environment, Save our Earth”
