How does it feel to be part of this year’s search for the next Premiere Vixens?
I’m enjoying it very much. Since I was young I’ve always wanted to be a model. I’m still studying too but pangarap ko talagang maging flight attendant someday, after I finish my studies.
Do you enjoy traveling?
Yes, I’m actually taking up tourism. Mahilig din ako mag-travel. I want to visit Australia because I heard it has nice tourist spots. I have a friend who is from Australia so I really want to see the places over there.
So how do you pass the time when you aren’t modeling or dreaming of Australia?
Mahilig akong gumimik. I go around Quezon City and Makati. I like to party and dance.
What are some of the qualities a man needs to possess to get a girl like you?
Siyempre kailangan mabait. He always needs to be there for me. Gusto ko yung aalagaan ako kahit ano’ng mangyari. Siyempre kailangan din guwapo. Ha ha! He has to be tall and maputi. But what’s important in a relationship is that the man should be nice. And at the same time the woman should be nice to her man too.
Do you honestly believe in love at first sight?
Siyempre! I’m very romantic.
What is the most romantic thing a guy has ever done for you?
Last Valentine’s Day my boyfriend gave me flowers and a teddy bear. It is hard to explain and describe but it is very important to stay romantic. I like romantic dates where you eat out and you’re both very sweet to each other.
Can you describe how a guy can display this sweetness?
He always needs to be beside me. Ayoko yung ikinahihiya ako sa mga kaibigan. He should also be proud to have me by his side.
Have you always been into dancing?
Ever since I was a kid I loved to dance. My fascination started when I was around 15.
Are you able to use your experience as a dancer in your modeling career?
Yes, nagagamit din naman. Like when I used to join pageants, may talent portion tapos madalas ko gawin sumayaw. My talent is always doing a Love Dance.
It’s a dance kung san sasayaw ka sa isang love song. May isang time sumayaw kami sa tunog ng isang Korean song. Mag-partner kami, babae at lalaki.
Interesting. We all know that the Vixens shoots are pretty daring. Do you still ever get scared of disrobing in front of the camera?
Never! This is what I really want to do!
