Panglao is Bohol's Bet for Miss Philippines Earth 2017

Last night, her dream became a reality when she was picked by a select panel of judges from a field of 11 candidates as Bohol’s official bet for the national finals of Miss Philippines Earth 2017during the Grand Coronation held at the ICM Activity Center.
