I will be the very first Filipina to represent our country in the pageant, so that pressure gives me so much motivation to put our country high up. Thank you to everyone who believed in me and knew that I had something coming for me. As they say, you're only redirected.”



Paula holds dual citizenships for Philippines and Spain. She speaks fluent Spanish, English & Filipino which will be advantageous for her as she competes at the international pageant.
