Miss Philippines-Earth 2012 Candidates (28-30)

Miss Mun. of MANAOAG, Pangasinan
ZANDRA FLORES

DESCRIBE YOUR CHILDHOOD/GROWING YEARS (8-13 Years old)
From the age of 8-10, I was in a private Catholic institution in Manila, Philippines where I was very active with school activities. When I graduated I was voted and awarded "Artist of the Year". After graduating from elementary school, my parents then decided for us to move to England and I continued my life there from the age of 11 onwards. I have been able to adjust quickly with the new environment even though I could only speak minimal English at the time. That didn't hinder me from learning more about the English culture and the language itself. Due to my persistence in doing well at school in a foreign country, I won many awards in class. This made me to want to join Miss Earth and serve as an example for other aspiring beauty queens like myself.

WHAT LESSONS DID YOU LEARN FROM YOUR CHILDHOOD/GROWING YEARS?
I have learned that starting to work hard early on in life serves as a good foundation in becoming a better citizen. This discipline will influence others to be responsible and strive towards a good direction in life. Having to move to different countries and meeting multicultural societies helped broaden my understanding and perception about today's world. The experience taught me to distinguish right from wrong, and to be accountable for all my life decisions. Also, my parents taught me the value of hard work, which has made me become more independent at the age of 16. Handling my own personal burdens and valuing my education is a learning experience that became very important to me.

WHAT IS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT?
When I was studying at the University of Bradford in England, I was independent and living away from my family. I worked at a nursing home nearby to cover my living expenses. At the same time, I went through an emotional breakdown because my relationship of six years ended abruptly, and the people I once regarded as good friends weren't there for me. I was left both emotionally and physically drained. Working with the elderly clientele then became my coping mechanism as they listened and supported me all throughout this trying time. They uplifted my spirit and inspired me to do well and go on with my life. I was able to start anew with friends who were both real and trustworthy. Altogether, because of this new experience, I have learned to be more cautious and careful in choosing friends and that there is nothing more important than your family. Whatever happens, your family will never fail to give you a helping hand when you need it the most.

WHAT IS THE MOST UNUSUAL THING YOU'VE EVER DONE
There are many unusual and random things I have done in my life. One would be jumping into the deep end of swimming pool at a children's party because I was confident that I could swim without having to learn how to. I almost drowned, but, luckily, was saved by my neighbor. Another incident happened when I was 10 years old. I was quite the "tomboy" then and I was sent to the guidance office for getting into a physical fight with boys.

WHAT IS YOUR AMBITION IN LIFE?
My ambition in life is to be the next Miss Philippines Earth so I can represent the Philippines and advocate ecotourism as a means to provide livelihood for our fellow Filipinos and promote Filipino culture and nature. I would also like to promote the place I love the most, Pangasinan, which is the home of the first Philippine national park and the Hundred Islands. I want to show that Pangasinan has its share of ecotourism destinations that my fellow Pangasinenses and Filipinos can be proud of.

WHAT IS YOUR ENVIRONMENTAL ADVOCACY AND WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS?
My environmental advocacies are: waste segregation and massive tree planting.

We should practice separating biodegradable from non-biodegradable wastes and promote the three "R's": Reduce, Re-Use, and Recycle because bio-degradable wastes can be converted into effective garden and farm fertilizers while non-biodegradable wastes can be converted into re-usable household materials like market bags. Tree-planting, on the other hand, helps convert carbon dioxide into the oxygen we all need to survive. This helps prevent global warming and restores the beauty of our beloved Philippines.

WHAT TIP CAN YOU SHARE TO PROMOTE SUSTAINABLE ENERGY FOR ALL?
There are many ways of promoting sustainable energy like the use of wind energy from windmills that can be found, for example, in Bangui, Ilocos Norte, Philippines. They use sustainable energy but do no harm to our environment because the energy comes from the wind. Another example is solar energy, which comes from solar panels that provide energy from sunlight. Last but not the least, is biogas, which is produced from the breakdown of organic matter such as dead plants, animal waste and kitchen waste. We should advocate the use of these sustainable energy resources because they help prevent global warming.

WHAT LESSONS DID YOU LEARN FROM YOUR CHILDHOOD/GROWING YEARS?
You don't need to be independent all the time. In this life you have to learn, if possible, almost everything to survive.

My first kiss.

WHAT IS YOUR AMBITION IN LIFE?
To be a musical artist.

WHAT IS YOUR ENVIRONMENTAL ADVOCACY AND WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS?
Nowadays, people aren't responsible about disposing their garbage. My advocacy is to promote proper waste disposal.

Before we rest at the end of the day, we should always unplug our electrical appliances so that we can conserve energy.

Miss Province of MISAMIS OCCIDENTAL
JADE CHARMAINE MANAGO
19 years old | Information Technology Student

DESCRIBE YOUR CHILDHOOD/GROWING YEARS (8-13 Years old)
I was boyish as a child. I didn't like light and colorful colors, I hated girls and I didn't want to talk to anybody. I always stayed at home and did all the household chores, before and after class.

WHAT LESSONS DID YOU LEARN FROM YOUR CHILDHOOD/GROWING YEARS?
I've learned many things from my childhood, which I apply at present. I've learned discipline and how to be more sociable. I am a lot friendlier now compared to how I was as a child.

WHAT IS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT?
My most memorable moment was when I was chosen Festival Queen of Tangub City for Sinulog 2011. Even though I didn't win, I value the experience and it's something I will always treasure forever and ever

WHAT IS THE MOST UNUSUAL THING YOU'VE EVER DONE?
The most unusual thing I've and I ever done was to climb a coconut tree at the age of 15. It was my first time and I was so scared, but I was able to make it because of the people who encouraged me and cheered me on, while I was climbing. I also believe that it was because of God and because I trusted myself.

WHAT IS YOUR AMBITION IN LIFE?
My ambition in life is to have a better future someday. I want to finish my course, so that I can get a good job and help my parents. I also want to help my siblings with their education because I believe that education is important.

WHAT IS YOUR ENVIRONMENTAL ADVOCACY AND WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS?
Preserve our mother nature – I choose this because, in our province, we are experiencing power supply shortage. Climate change is the product of irresponsible human actions. Deforestation leads to rising temperature levels in the ecosystem, drying up bodies of water that are detrimental to the livelihood of many people.

WHAT TIP CAN YOU SHARE TO PROMOTE SUSTAINABLE ENERGY FOR ALL?
Always switch the lights off when not in use-- to sustain the energy balance between a fragile eco system.
