The diva belongs to Filipino-Austrian descent and impressed everyone with her performance at Miss Earth 2018 where she was asked “Being a millennial, what do you think is the most pressing issue of your generation?” To which she answered, “As a millennial, we tend to not pay attention about what’s happening around the world because of all the technologies we’re using, like social media. But we can use social media in a positive way. We millennials can use it to spread awareness on what’s happening in our environment, and if we do that, everybody will be informed on what’s happening, and we can live a better future, not just for us human beings, but for the creatures on Earth. Thank you.”
