It is still surreal that I am now MRS. ASIA PACIFIC ALL NATIONS 2021/2022 because my pageant journey was never easy. When I won the local pageant, the pandemic struck. In November 2020, we were affected by typhoon Ulysses. I asked for help from different organizations and LGUs to support my journey but got rejected because of the pandemic and it was understandable. I began to lose hope that I would not be able to continue, but God remained faithful and kept me grounded. He led me to a few but the right people who significantly helped me. I am grateful for all of you. You know who you are.
During my prayer time, God impressed in my heart the verse from Matthew 28:19, "Go therefore and make disciples of ALL NATIONS baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit" and that's when I knew that my title was really meant for me.
As I start this chapter of my life, I pray that I would be able to fulfill my purpose as an individual to inspire, encourage, and spread God's love to others.
All that I have accomplished, it is because of God's love and faithfulness to me. I bring back all the glory, honor, and praises to Him!
