In 2011 I competed in my first national pageant in the Philippines called "Mutya Ng Pilipinas" (which translates to "Miss Pearl of the Philippines"). I won the "Best in Talent" and "Best in Designer Gown". In 2015, I competed in Miss Filipino-American Florida USA (held in Tampa Bay Florida) & won the main title, as well as best in Swimsuit, best in gown, the most photogenic award. In June 2019, I competed for and won the "Ms. International World Global" title, held on the cruise to the Bahamas.
World Class Beauty Queens: What inspired you to do your first pageant?
Going after my fears. I was an ugly duckling in my younger years, and always wondered of what it would be like to model or to be in a beauty pageant. I was very shy, and growing up in a very judgmental environment where I always felt I was not pretty or tall enough. One day, I just made a decision to go after what I wanted to do, and to push my luck. It was the most awkward and hilarious audition ever, and that's one of the reason why I was picked to be in one of the 30 delegates out of hundreds of girls who auditioned from all over the Philippines.
World Class Beauty Queens: Why did you choose to compete for your current title?
I'm proud to represent my home country, and it meant a lot to me and my family to promote my culture and values on a global level.

World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your experience during the competition.
It was a very exciting experience because for the first time I got a chance to represent my country in an international beauty pageant, and to have my friends and family there meant a world to me.
World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your platform or what cause do you volunteer for.
Growing up without a role model really made me appreciate a difference a right example can make. I believe it's important to know that, no matter where you came from, you can achieve anything as long as you put the work and your heart into it. And that's what my platform is all about.

World Class Beauty Queens: What is one mistake that you've done during competing you wish you could redo and fix it?
I wish I double checked for my green card before leaving home. It was a 2 hour drive from my home to the West Palm Beach port, and I only realized that I don't have my green card when I was checking in, and can't board without it. I only had 4 hours before the gate closes, and I was thankful my best friend was there: she jumped in the car with me and we had a 3.5 hour back and forth funny road trip from west palm beach to Miami to pick up my green card. Every one in the pageant thought I wasn't gonna make it, and sure enough I arrived just before the gate closed.
World Class Beauty Queens: What other mistakes are made by girls during the contest?
Lack of preparation and not having a purpose for the platform and title that they want to win. Being a beauty queen title holder is about more than just having a pretty face.

I have done a lot of modeling since I was 18 year old: from photography, to published magazines and commercials.

I want to continue to use my platform to empower and inspire women and children, as an entrepreneur and as a beauty queen.

A legacy where being beautiful means being true to yourself, strong, a person of purpose and inspiration.
