I'm a sports enthusiast and played in the volleyball varsity team for 6 years from high school to college.
I used to be a socially awkward person who suffered social anxiety for many years and my dream is to one day become a life coach and motivational speaker.
A few weeks before the Miss Universe Philippines competition, I joined a virtual race and ran 42 kilometers for the benet of children who are victims of the armed conflict in Negros.
