MISS WORLD PHILIPPINES WAS BORN IN CAIRNS ON JANUARY 6, 1994, AND WENT TO OUR LADY HELP OF CHRISTIANS AND TRINITY ANGLICAN SCHOOLS. A MODEL AND SINGER, SHE IS BASED IN MANILA
My charity work was the catalyst. I really identify with the brand of Miss World and see it as a wonderful platform to be able to help more people from the Philippines. I don’t know how many outfits I have, but I do have the most suitcases of all the contestants this year — nine. a traditional Filipinana terno with some modern elements.
For auditions I performed my version of the classic and for the semis I performed the song from the Vancouver Olympics.
project focuses on the lack of education for children in Tondo, Manila. Many families can’t afford to give their children an education. I have partnered with Young Focus, an organisation that strives to provide free and accessible education to children in Tondo, to purchase and renovate a three-storey building as a new childcare and preschool centre. parents, aunts, uncles and boyfriend are all here to support me. I just enjoy the journey. I know in my heart I have gained from the experience. While the results may overwhelm with certain emotions, the afterglow will be one of gratitude and happiness that I met the people I did and experienced this wonderful journey.
