  1. My interest in Anje Mae is not so much because she’s a ka-probinsya but due more to her advocacy. The goal of sustainable agriculture is to meet society’s food needs in the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. In sustainable agriculture, three main objectives are integrated: a healthy environment, economic profitability, and social and economic equity. Every person involved in the food chain—growers, food processors, distributors, retailers, and consumers— has a role to play in ensuring a sustainable agricultural system. Of the many possible topics in sustainable agriculture, Anje Mae’s video focused on the looming food insecurity due to the aging population of farmers caused by lack of interest of the youth on farming. Due to low market value of farm products, she advocated for the promotion of processing to value-added products that can command higher prices.

    • The video is supposed to have won a BWAP award. But the video failed to clearly show the major link to sustainability issue– the cultivation and processing to value-added products using methods promoting farmworker wellbeing, that are environmentally friendly, or that strengthen the local economy. I hope she can improve her advocacy presentation along this line. Otherwise, she’d be better off tackling the pressing issue of lowering the price of sibuyas and galunggong.

    • Undoubtedly, sustainable agriculture as a major key to global food security is a good advocacy to showcase one’s transformational leadership. Practitioners in sustainable agriculture often cross disciplinary lines with their work, combining economics, politics, community development, biology, engineering, chemistry, etcetera. If Anje Mae could present a more focused yet comprehensive presentation of her actual advocacy work, this is something novel at MU stage. The fact that she is an agriculturist by profession makes for a credible authentic advocacy– pageant or no pageant– that adds to her capacity to be beautifully confident.

  2. Di man nila aminin, pero litong-lito na ang current MUPh Org kung sino ang isasalang nila ulit sa El Salvador para kahit man lang sa first cut makapasok.

  3. Her video is very broad, non specific and vague. The video must focus on her program of activities how and what she did to help the farmers to obtain such sustainable agriculture. Example, lectures/trainings and fieldworks. Be very specific and a hands-on program activities should be the focus of the video to inspire others how were you able to deliver the meaning of sustainable agriculture to farmers.
    The above video will be judged as fake advocacy.
    During closed interview, she can further explain her chosen advocacy. Their municipal/provincial DAR can help her about sustainable agriculture.
    Again, cherette lungs 🫁

  4. Beautiful Ms. Manipol❤️
    Hello Philippines. We’re u able to watch the closed
    door interview of Miss Canada and Miss Laos? Are you convinced that they deserve to be on the Top 16? If yes, then 101% agreed with the MU judges decision. Both are authentic, not memorized/rehearsed, inspirational story, a woman of substance.
    I heard, 50% for closed interview, 25% for SS and 25% for EG.
    Now you know why and your questions were answered na mga vacklashessss😱😆
    Cherette lungs 🫁
