So, beatboxing. Long gown. Miss World. What was up with that?
Ha ha! My main talent is singing, but I know how to beatbox as well. So I thought, instead of singing, which is too common, I chose to do something different and unique during the talent portion.
How long have you been doing this?
Ever since high school. I started by watching tutorials on YouTube and learned the basics. Then after a few months, I mastered different techniques.
Even Huf?ngton Post and Time were impressed by your Miss World stunt. How did you feel about that?
That was my intention—to make it to the news, ha ha!
Well played! What keeps you busy these days?
I do ramp modeling, hosting, and judging for beauty pageants. I’m also studying Baking and Pastry Arts at Enderun. I want to have my own café and restaurant someday.
You’ve worked with a lot of models and beauty queens. Can you tell us how to approach a beautiful woman like you without pissing our pants?
Think of her as a normal woman. Beauty queen or not, we’re all actually the same—in that we always look for good character and a striking personality in men.
You did a lot of dif?cult-looking poses earlier. How prepared were you for those?
Ha ha! They’re not easy but I’ve done my research. I studied different magazine covers and learned these poses through observation. Ganun kasi yung personality ko. I learn how to do a lot of things just by looking at them.
