Instead of sitting around feeling stressed and upset about the pandemic brought about by Coronavirus, Miss Universe Philippines 2020 candidate Nathalia Urcia of Batangas took advantage of the luxury in time choosing what productive activities to do amidst the dragging/slow-paced lifestyle.
During the quarantine period, Nathalia stayed home in Batangas together with her family. Residing at the beach front, the main door of the house is just 20 steps away and one’s feet will get wet by the sea water. Yes, that close! And when we say sea, words like fun, peace, relaxing, calm, dream, play, happy, sad and swim are always associated with it.
Not a single day passed since without Nathalia spending moments on the beach. Alone or with companions, she always welcomed a good swim. During the mornings – after her beauty routines & rituals and properly masked (as covid prevention protocol) together with her pet dogs Brandy & Sophie – they stroll on the sandy beach back and forth. This is her kind of morning exercise – sweating-out and at the same time keeping the mighty bond with her dogs which she treats like her children. This is everyday. She has a deep love for dogs – a Cynophilist she is and always has been. Cuddling her canines, a good frolic at the sea and a trusty make up kit are her best pampering come-ons.
Like many of her close cousins who were also locked down in Batangas, this is the perfect time for them to reconnect to each other – previously stalled by their own personal responsibilities and priorities. Aside from reliving childhood memories, all of them share the same interest of playing cards and other games.
However, in the height of corona virus pandemic, Nathalia did not forget to do her share as a youth, as a citizen, and as an ambassadress of beauty and goodwill. In her very own little way, she finds way to solicit some cash to buy face mask, alcohol and basic needs to help those who have no income during this stressful period. She really has a big heart and this sincere personality is genuine.
As for her advocacy, she always believes in the strength and power of a woman. That she can also stand still through this stressful period of the pandemic; that she can be of great help to the community and to the society. You really cannot snub the great ability and courage of this pure-blooded Batangenya that despite of her complete package of beauty which she can set aside to live a simpler life to perform and deliver her duties as a citizen of this country.
