Reason for joining Miss Dinagyang:

It was really my dream to be a beauty queen and I think Miss Iloilo Dinagyang is really a great opportunity for me to achieve it. Others would think joining a beauty pageant is just a way of being popular or just for vanity. But for me it is a way of thanking God of what He has given me. It is to make use the things He had showered me in a good way which is to share my talents and my abilities. Another thing is that I believe I can be a good example to the younger generation today. Being Miss Iloilo Dinagyang comes with the title Ambassadress of Goodwill of Iloilo. I have ideas in mind that I can do for the Ilonggos especially for the youth that would really help them, and i don’t want those to remain as ideas. I want it to be real.

I can be Miss Iloilo Dinagyang because I can represent Iloilo at its finest.
