Where are you from? And, are you currently living there? If not, where are you currently living?
I am from Davao City, Philippines. Proud to be Filipino! I am currently in Phoenix, Arizona.
Does your personality match your Zodiac sign? Describe.
I believe my zodiac sign, Taurus, does match my personality. I am hard working, strong headed (in a good way!), loyal, and crave for intimate relationships and lasting friendships.
What would you say are your strengths as a model?
As a model, my biggest strength is that I know who I am. I know that I won't get caught up in this industry, becoming a person I am not. I have had many obstacles in life to test my character, and after overcoming each one, I found more and more of my true self. That is my biggest strength in modeling and life in general.
What is your best beauty secret?
My best beauty secret is clean skin. I am luckily blessed with natural clean skin, but I like to stay away from all the heavy makeup if possible! I like my face to breath.
Where can we see you?
I am actually fairly new in the modeling industry. I do have a couple features on FKN Famous; I can be seen on Unknwn Limited clothing website, and also, the Beyond Statistics Street Wear website. Needless to say, I plan on being more visible in the near future.
What are your future plans (long term goals)?
My long term goals are fairly simple: finish school, settle down, have a family one day, and enjoy the things in life that money can't buy. I know it sounds cliché, but I'm a simple girl. In the end, good relationships, good friends, and a clear mind is all I need to stay happy.
Do you drink? If so, what do you drink? If not, why do you not drink?
I rarely drink; if I do it'll be a glass of wine or a nice cold beer. I do like the taste of tequila, but you won't catch me throwing back shots! I see nothing wrong with it, especially being young, but I just choose to stay away from it. I hate the thought of waking up regretting those drinks!
What is the best present you received? What is the best present you gave?
The best present I received wasn't even a present at all. I say that God's gift to me and allowing me and my mother to immigrate to the states from the Philippines is the best gift I have received. It has opened so many opportunities for me that I am forever thankful. The best present I have given would have to be when I moved back to the Philippines 3 years ago and my friend did not have enough money to go to the school's prom (I went to a very poor school). I surprised him by giving him the money to go, and it shocked me that he was resistant to accepting it because he knew he couldn't pay me back. When I explained that it is my gift to him the genuine smile and gratitude that came over him was so fulfilling to me.
Where (restaurants) do you like to eat? What do you order? Why?
I love to eat at Raw Sushi, any Filipino restaurant, and really, any Mexican restaurant. I love sushi, well California rolls. I have ventured out finally and tried other rolls, but I'm not brave enough to try all the crazy ones yet. I love Filipino food, go figure! It is my all-time favorite food. Also, Mexican food; you can never go wrong.
What do you do on your spare time?
On my spare time I like to work out, do yoga, clean, pamper myself, and spend quality time with the people closest to me.
How do you keep in such excellent shape? Explain your daily/exercise routine.
I run 30 minutes four times a week. I know it's not much, but I really hate running. I do power yoga, I love how it works every muscle in my body, and the whole practice is so cleansing, physically and mentally. I also love to dance.
Are you big on first impressions? What do you first notice on a man?
First impressions aren't super important to me, because there have been times where I had an impression on someone and was completely off about what type of person I thought they were. So I try to give everyone a fair chance and give myself time to get to know them before I judge their character. The first thing I notice on a man is his smile; they have to have a good smile!
What's on your travel itinerary? Are you planning to go to any events in the future and/or vacation with your family, friends or 'significant other'?
My travel itinerary is pretty blank for now, unfortunately. But I would love to definitely travel back home, I absolutely love it there. I do plan on making it out to more events, as many as possible and hopefully travel the world. I definitely will do that before I die. I want to see what else is out there, there are so many beautiful places I want to experience.
How would you like your boyfriend to propose to you?
Honestly, it wouldn't matter how or where, as long as when it happens, it’s genuine. When my life is filled with pure love, nothing can ruin that.
Marriage song? What song would you like played on your wedding night? Why?
I would like to play the song, “This I Promise You.” It speaks for itself. It speaks on the commitment and love an everlasting marriage should have.
What else can you tell us about yourself?
Over all, I am a simple person, young but with an old soul. I love cheesy moments in life, I appreciate the tiny, compassionate moments in my life the most. I just try to fuel the light of my own happiness in life.
Any shout-outs or last words?
Always a big shout out to my family, because I would be no where without their unconditional love and support, and to all those who I have worked with for the amazing opportunities they have provided for me.
