Anna Maris Arcay Igpit was born on April 7, 1987 in Panglao, Bohol and grew up in Cebu City, where she attended St. Theresa's College, Cebu City for her elementary and secondary education.

At the tender age of 16, she competed in the 2003 Miss Bohol Sandugo Pageant representing the Panglao- based beach resorts of Alona Tropical & Dumaluan. 

She easily stood out with her statuesque and lithe frame, dusky Filipina complexion and her elegant and queenly bearing. 
She placed 1st runner up to Faye Rana of Jagna. 

In 2005, she again entered and this time, won the Miss Bohol Sandugo Beauty Pageant representing the town of Panglao.
