The beauty is no new to pageantry as she represented Muntinlupa at Miss Earth Philippines in year 2019. She wasn’t placed, but her performance was remarkable in the competition. She was awarded with many titles in the national pageant. She was awarded with Blossoms' Best Advocacy and she was also placed in the Top 3 of the talent competitions, where she fell under the category of singing. The diva was also placed under the category of Figure and Form and was the Top 10 scorer in each preliminary round.

The diva definitely will be a strong contender in the Miss Universe Philippines 2020 as she is already well versed with the pageantry world and also knows how to perform with her best skills. She is not just beautiful but also very talented and filled with great attributes. She loves animals and nature and her advocacy has been related to it in the Miss Earth Philippines 2019, and now with more advocacies and goals, the diva will definitely come out stronger in the Miss Universe Philippines pageant.
