“Now that it’s Holy Week, I have the good opportunity to share to people one thing I prepared for Binibining Pilipinas, and that is to get to know myself on a spiritual level. I learned that one quality of a beauty queen in order to lead is to have a strong identity. You can only have a strong identity once you start to get to know yourself spiritually.
I am a Catholic Christian. I grew up going to church every Sunday, saying a prayer before meals and before going to sleep. I was raised the Catholic Filipino way. I believe in God and I believe our existence is mainly to glorify Him. Above all, the relationship we have with Him is what I believe is most important. The faith I have in myself and in God is what makes me firmly grounded. It is what makes me confidently ready to face anything that life throws at me.
Ultimately, I believe that life is about knowing good and doing good. Religion, Race, Cultural difference create division and diversity, but we all know “goodness” once we see it. When we are treated good, we feel great and that we want to do something good in return; there’s that half-second moment of understanding that we feel like we are coming from the same roots. We all know “good” when we see it, simply because our spiritual purpose in life is to do good, and avoid evil.
As what I always say in every introduction I make, I believe life is about finding purpose. Knowing what you believe in is part of the journey in knowing how to shape your own life. In this journey less than a month towards the coronation night, I realized that a prepared mind, heart and soul is what makes me ready for a crown.”

“…with all due respect to the beliefs of other people, I am firm in saying that we all have one higher God whom we put our faith in. As a person, I truly feel that whatever I do, whatever I pursue, whatever decision drives me, I dont believe that there’s a right or wrong one, for my God has bigger plans for me. That has always been my mantra in life. Nothing shall be impossible thru God who strengthens me. I know that whatever happens, my God has bigger plans for me. Some bad and unexpected things will happen but I keep my faith strong. My faith keeps me going and drive further to my goals in life.
On the other hand when it comes to love, our God – regardless of our mistakes – continues to trust and forgive us. We human beings tend to think that we are always capable, we are always better than anyone else and to breakeven. For me, whenever people do something wrong to me, I always think that who am I not to forgive when my God, with all the sins we committed still forgives us…”
“Tito Norms! To be an Official Candidate of Bb. Pilipinas is already a big deal for me. I am focused on all the good things coming my way. Honestly – regardless of whether I win a crown or not, I am already grateful for getting this far as a Binibini. Totoo po iyan. I am enjoying the whole ride because I don’t want to unnecessarily pressure myself. Basta, I am giving a good fight for my dreams so that I won’t end up with what-ifs.”
