When asked what it takes to be a Dalagang Pilipina, Tom without hesitation answered “With the onslaught of irresponsible exposure of commercialism on sex and extra marital affairs, it takes a lot of self respect and conviction to be a modern Maria Clara.” Models Nicole Inovero, Zamairah Alvarez Amper, and Sharmaine Migriño are few of today’s modern Maria Clara. Tom describes these three models as versatile, exotic, and sweet respectively.

On the other hand, male model Edward portrayed the strong Philippine heroes. The striking human flag pose is a representation of all brave men of this country who went through the struggles and sacrifices to achieve the Philippine independence.
