The search for Miss Cebu is always a major highlight of the Sinulog festival. It never fails to be one of the most anticipated events of the year. Everyone from pageant enthusiasts to tourists are easily captivated by the beauty of Cebuanas.

Last year’s winner, Diane Muego wowed the crowd with her strikingly smart answer during the Q&A portion. The crowd literally went wild! The bar has been set high for the young women who are vying for this year’s prestigious crown.

Define a woman of substance

A woman of substance is one who dedicates her life to meaningful pursuit or calling. She lives up to the timeless adage that true beauty comes from within.

What is the one thing you would sacrifice for love?

I would sacrifice time for love. Time is as precious as love. Nothing shows a person how important he or she is to you than by giving him or her the only thing in life that once lost can no longer be recovered.

What is the essence of a woman?

The essence of being a woman is being a mother, giving birth and life and nurturing a person to become a citizen who will be able to contribute to the society.

If you  had the chance to go on a dinner with one notorious and one achiever, who would they  be and why?

If I would have that chance then I would invite Gringo Honasan because I’m curious to know about his way of life. For the achiever, I will ask our President NoyNoy Aquino because I think there are a lot of interesting things to ask and learn from him.

How would you react if you found out the winner of the pageant you recently joined is a transgender?

It doesn’t matter if the winner is a transgender or a woman because I  believe that the important thing is that the person was able to carry the responsibilities along with the title.

If you win the crown of Miss Cebu 2015, what will your advocacy be?

My advocacy will be geared towards providing shelter to abused women. Having been in the same situation, I have recognized that the need for more shelters and centres where women can go to and feel safe.

If you become pregnant during your reign, do you think you should give up your crown?

I don’t feel the need to give up the crown if in case I get pregnant during my reign. I think it’s more vital that I get to fulfill my responsibilities.

Love or Career?

As the youngest and breadwinner in the family, I think I will go for my career because the  greatest love can be found in your family and friends.

How will you react if you found out the winner of the pageant you recently joined is a transgender?

My personal principle is that to make things fair; there should be a different pageant for the female and for those who are female at heart.

Who is the Filipina beauty queen you look up to?

For me, it’s Kris Janson because I have seen her amazing transformation from the simple college girl she used to be to this international beauty queen.

Beauty or Brains?

Definitely brains because through great ideas and thoughts, you can make a positive impact!

If you were to become the president of the Philippines, what is the primary social issue you would focus on?

Since I am a CPA and I have an extensive background on accountability then I would look in to the troubles in the government and delve deeper in to how the finances are managed so we can create better transparency.

What is your say on abortion?

Abortion is a no-no option for me in controlling the population. Life is a gift from God. This is a decision that tests our morals and values.

If you win the crown of Miss Cebu 2015, what will your advocacy be?

I have a strong personal value on the need for education.  It paves the way for better opportunities for everyone so I’m looking in to making a difference by having a yearly provision of school supplies to school children. This would be a great start in realizing the dream to have a Cebu city that is free from street children.

Define success

Achieving your ultimate goal or dream which will give you real joy is success. It is enjoying your journey towards your dream without stepping on other people while having a pure and happy heart.

Why should you win as Miss Cebu 2015?

To be crowned as Miss Cebu 2015, you must be a woman of substance. She is a woman who is not only beautiful but also a woman with the power of voice, a heart for others and passion for service. I can say that my experiences molded me to become a woman of substance. My background with public service through youth empowerment plus the knowledge I have gathered from the different activities that we had in this pageant make me fully equipped to become the next Miss Cebu.

What is your say on abortion?

If abortion will be done for medical purposes then it could be an option but it can’t be done just because one has failed to prepare for the responsibility of being a parent. Bringing life to this world is a pre medidated decision so one should have thought first about her capacity to handle that kind of responsibility.

Who is the Filipina beauty queen you look up to?

I look up to Shamcey Supsup because she is an epitome of a woman with beauty and brains.

What is the one thing you would give up for love?

One thing I’m willing to give up for love is being alone. As a writer, I really value my alone time . As they say, being alone and lonely are two different things. Love is about companionship, being together and forming a strong bond.

What is the first thing you tell foreigners about Philippines?

It’s definitely the warmth of the Filipino people – not the weather nor the beautiful beaches and sceneries. Having travelled to Europe and meeting people from different countries, I have learned to appreciate more the hospitality and warmth that we have as Filipinos.

Love or Career?

I will go for my career because it’s something I can be personally good at. I believe love is always an open door.

If you  had the chance to go on a dinner with one notorious and one achiever, who would they  be and why?

I wouldn’t want to choose because being notorious doesn’t really mean being bad nor being an achiever means being necessarily good.

Define a woman of substance

A woman of substance is someone whose beauty can be seen and felt; strives to be equal to men and geared towards serving others and contributing something meaningful and remarkable to the society.

How would you react if you found out the winner of the pageant you recently joined is a transgender?

I’m a proud supporter of the LGBT community so it doesn’t really matter who wins. However, it would have a bearing on the process of the organization. It’s not about the winner. It’s about the process.
