MANILA, Philippines - In line with the Miss Philippines Earth 2013 pageant's water conservation theme, this 22-year-old college graduate says, "Include in your daily routine using only enough water for taking a bath or even brushing your teeth. And when you are washing your car, you can use the water you used in your laundry."

Describe your childhood/growing-up years (8-13 years old):

When I was a kid, I was the center of attention in the family. In school, I was a tough girl that is why I have scars.

Most memorable moment:

I have two memorable moments in my life: first, when I was crowned Miss Zamboanga in 2011; second, when I graduated from Ateneo de Zamboanga University.

What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?

My advocacy is to use water appropriately and to practice proper waste management. I chose this advocacy because our water resources are continuously being threatened by human actions and I believe that there are a lot of simple ways that we can do to save the resources from danger.
