- How do you feel right now?
I don’t really feel particularly different. I know that I am Miss Dumaguete, but I still feel the same like a normal girl especially with the Intramurals. I just feel like any athlete who’s aiming for the championship.
- What is the importance of having a good skin?
I am really keen on skin. My skin routine is much hectic. Every night, I remove the make- up, wash my face and put serum.
Beauty tips: Always wash your face at night and put sunblock every day.
- How do you make yourself physically fit?
I work out at least thrice a week. I do volleyball trainings.
- Why did you choose engineering?
When I was in fourth year high school, I didn’t have particular cour4se in my mind. But, I felt to myself that I’m probably good at Math so I chose engineering.
In the long run, engineering paid way to pageantry. Ironically, it’s a place dominated by men and it made way to Miss Silliman and now Miss Dumageute.
- What is your other option aside from becoming an engineer?
I want to be a blogger or vlogger. I am more into make-up. I like Tati.
- What have you learned in your Miss Silliman pageant stint?
I learned to accept all the happenings no matter what. Because God has his reasons for these things to happen. And that happened in order for me to become Miss Dumaguete 2017.
Miss Silliman is very different from other pageants. It’s more on the intellectual side. You have to know more about your advocacy in life. The pageant helped especially in dealing with people and public speaking.
- How do you manage your time as a senior engineering student, varsity player and now a Miss Dumaguete?
It’s all about prioritizing. I have a list of the things that I have to do in my planner especially that I am forgetful.
- How did your boyfriend help you during your Miss Dumaguete journey?
I only had one boyfriend. He is Engineer Alex Gascon. He was very supportive especially during my Miss Dumaguete journey. But honestly, he is really against me joining Miss Dumaguete because of the bikini portion. But he supports me in everything that I do. Even before the pageant, he already said, “You are my Miss Dumaguete.”
- What is your favorite movie?
- What is your favorite childhood memory?
Playing childhood games like Patintero.
- Who is your role model?
My mother. She is really caring, loving, understanding. She is the light of our family. She is my inspiration in everything that I do. When I think of the real essence of a woman, I always think of my mother. She is my pillar, the one who holds our family, the one who makes the final decisions. And I believe that that’s really the essence of being a woman.
- In the next ten years, how would you want Dumaguete City to look like?
I would really like to see Dumaguete towards a greener side; more trees in particular. Besides from being progressive, I really want Dumaguete to prioritize the ecosystem.
