Meet the Municipality of Sevilla’s official bet in the 2016 Miss Bohol Pageant Search.

|Standout during province- wide search for Miss BACS 2012|
We always associate beauty queens with glitz and glamour but Queenie is not your typical beauty queen. Prior to and right after her crowning as Mutya ng Sevilla, she lost two very important women in her life to breast cancer. She dedicated her Mutya ng Sevilla victory to her grandma who passed away days before the pageant and to her mother who also passed away a month after her crowning.
She has found solace & comfort in knowing her two loved ones are in a place where there is no pain. At the same time, she draws strength from her painful losses every time adversity strikes.
If and when Lady Luck smiles at her during pageant night, she will dedicate her year of reign to focusing on Bohol's tourism draws and help increase the awareness level on breast cancer
With teary eyes, she clearly remembers that her parents were monitoring the Miss Sevilla pageant right at their home since her mom was already too sick to attend the pageant finals and besides, their house is only a few meters away from the cultural center & gymnasium where the pageant was being staged.
