DSC_0598How do you feel winning this beauty contest?

I feel excited very happy.

Were you expecting anything like this would happen?

I was not expecting it. That is why when my name was announced, I was so excited. This is unbelievable. I feel I am still dreaming.

What would you say gave you an edge over other contestants?

I would say my confidence. All the contestants were very beautiful and good looking. I think I have confident.

Why did you put in for the competition the first place?

I don’t just want to come here and win. I want to give back, especially those that are less privileged. So, whenever there is opportunity for me to be in a better position I would help those that are in need.

I want them to see me as a role model. They should not allow the circumstances they find themselves put them in limitation.

Among the contestants who gave you the toughest time?

I think Agnes, because she is my friend. She is very humble and intelligent. So, I saw her as a queen.

She was like a beauty queen back on campus. I think she was my biggest problem.

How do you intend to spend the money attached to the crown?

I will start my pet project with it.
