I can say that my day goes as usual as the others going to school, well, now staying at home keeping safe but i make sure to insert extra effort on the things that I do.
3. Can you describe the modern Lipeña?
A modern Lipeña is someone who believes that a day should not go by without learning something new and not having to share something to others in a day is a day wasted.
4. What’s your favorite Lipeño food?
Lomi in Lipa City is one of my favorites. Mainly because it’s relatively inexpensive and very tasty.

I joined because I would like to explore my capabilities and that I think joining will elevate how I view my self and the confidence that I need to keep moving forward.
6. Why do you think you should win Miss Lipa Tourism 2020?
I believe that winning Miss Lipa Tourism would not only help me for my individual growth, as a winner I would gladly do my best to deliver my role, an embodiment of a modern woman and uphold the values for which my title stands.
7. How do you plan on helping your fellow Lipeños as a candidate of Miss Lipa Tourism 2020?
I will serve as an example and pioneer on reaching out to people who needs help. These actions I will do to the best of my extent. As the saying goes “No man is an island” and I will help make sure that no one would ever be or even feel left behind.
8. What is your advocacy?
ADVOCACY FOCUS: Development of Children’s Through Culture And Arts.
So, that advocacy aims to instill in the minds of children of Lipa that learning without proper education can be possible, and that is by starting to teach them the culture of Lipa through music, dance, and creative story telling. It is a very sustainable project that can ignite the fire of euthusiasm of students to learning. Imagine having them first hand to dance the historical dance of Lipa, singing the very native song of the city and them telling the younger ones as well the history of Lipa. With that advocacy, they are learning at the same time becoming aware that Lipa City is not just their home and also a home of a very rich culture. And that alone can inspire them to go to school and learn more.
9. What’s your message to your fellow Lipeños?
My fellow youth. Do everything you do in the name of God in the service of your fellows. You can never feel the peace in material things and fame, but the peace is given to us by submitting our lives to the Glory of God.
10. Why do you deserve to be chosen as the Hello Lipa Brand Ambassadress?
I deserve to be Hello Lipa’s brand ambassadress because I am passionate and so driven to introduce what truly Lipa City is. Not just here in the Philippines but also all over the world. I want to inspire people to believe in themselves, to lead themselves and help their city instead of criticizing the leaders of it. The point is let us be tourist’s wanted to see or to accompany.
