Coming from a family of doctors, Miss Universe Philippines 2020 candidate Dianella Peralta Loya of Bulacan aspires to be a practicing Dentist someday. Being an upcoming 3rd year Dentistry Proper student, she knows all too well the importance of dental health since she has been properly taught how to properly care for it.
With that, she has an advocacy called “Ngiting Pilipino”. In partnership with the Philippine Dental Association (PDA), they will provide free dental consultations and medications, while executing programs to educate different communities about the importance of oral health and hygiene. She has always wanted to do this project. She wants to see smiles on people’s faces especially the little children.
As for ECQ, Dianella knows that it is a good thing in order to avoid the rise of confirmed cases of covid19 in our country. But on the other side, it affected a lot of people who lost their jobs and are unable to put food on their tables. She really wanted to reach out to those who are in need. As a result, she participated in a project called “Kusina ni Barbie”. She sold some of her personal stuff online to help in fundraising. She is glad that a lot of people supported her in this effort.
With the funds, they were able to give free food like lugaw, champorado, and more to fellow kababaryos. She can really feel their happiness behind the masks.
In the eyes of other pageant followers, Dianella may not be among their top choices for MUPH. But with the experience and authenticity, she may just make the Province of Bulacan and her hometown of Bocaue proud in the scheduled October 25 finals.
