Have you always been this attractive? You must have had a very pleasant childhood.
No, back in elementary and high school ako ang pinaka-pangit at pinaka-geek, I swear! Kahit tanungin mo yung classmates ko back in elementary.
What changed then?
I don’t know. Siguro as I matured, na-boost yung confidence ko.
Do you have any beauty regimens we should know about?
Wala! I eat a lot, that’s the secret! Construction worker nga raw ako kumain sabi ng iba. My friends and parents know that. Hindi lang talaga ako tumataba.

This isn’t your first time participating here, is it?
Yes, it’s my second time. Part din ako ng RRJ girls last year. Sa booth ako last year pero this year sa ramp naman ako.
What do you wear to make yourself feel sexy?
I like wearing short shorts and sleeveless tops. Mas comfortable ako pag shorts ang suot ko.
What do you do in your spare time when you aren’t modeling?
Nasa Tomas Morato ako, gumigimik, ha ha! Pero madalas yun pag may occasion lang. Gusto ko talaga sa bahay lang.

We hear you just graduated from college. What did you take up?
I graduated just last year, Computer Science. Pero ang gusto ko talaga Tourism kasi gusto kong maging flight attendant. That is my ultimate dream.
Being a flight attendant isn’t all fun. How would you cope?
That’s the hardest part, the homesickness. Feel ko yun yung magiging problem ko. But I’d keep my eyes on the goal, save some money and then eventually start a business.
Are you a shorts or a jeans kind of girl?
Actually ako, shorts ako. Shorts, leggings, kung saan mas comfortable. Bihira akong mag-pants!
