Aside from my mother, I have always looked up to this one person since I was a little kid. She is one of the most influential people in the world today. She’s no ordinary talk show host; she’s Ms. Oprah Winfrey, a woman with integrity that has touched millions of lives all over the world. The best qualities that she has is that she gives back, shares her blessings and remains grounded  through all these years, simply a woman worth of praise.

 I have always been a very hard working person in my studies, in the tasks that I am assigned to and in my career. I am the type of person who gives my all and pushes oneself to my limits. I simply give the credits to my parents, for raising and training me well in becoming an independent and self reliant person.

Our friendly smiles, our hospitality, our resiliency and most of all, our love for God, are just some of the qualities that we Kagay.anons posses in making Cagayan de Oro City the most beautiful city in the country.

If crowned Miss Cagayan de Oro 2013, how will you make your reign memorable?

What do you dream to become someday?
