Why do you want to join Misters of the Philippines?

What is the importance of pageants like Misters of the Philippines in our country today?
The importance of pageants like Misters of the Philippines in our country nowadays is that it provides awareness that we must also care and help our community to be more active and dedicated in helping others. At the same time, this helps boost self-confidence. It is also a preparation for our upcoming journeys in life.

What is your advocacy? Tell us something about it.
My advocacy is to inspire and help others in my own simple way. It may not be that valuable or luxurious, but it would definitely be something that can affect and change their way of living. I believe in the saying that purpose is what gives life meaning.

What is the best thing about being a Filipino?
I grew up in the Middle East and the first thing I've learned about Filipino culture is having a strong family values. Being very family-oriented and striving to give our family the best of life is something to be proud of. For me, being a Filipino is all about the values and respect which I have inherited from my parents. Being a Filipino is about who you are and how your parents raised you. It comes from within and it cannot be practiced nor rehearsed. -."It's just "You". Being a Filipino should be based upon pride in being one. As we continue being humble and treating everyone equally, we help our country and countrymen improve and earn recognition. Most of all, I have realized that love for our country does not reside in the superficial skin color, language, personality traits, or even choosing to live back home. It is the capacity to contribute to the betterment of our motherland and our people even you are a thousand miles away.

What is your ambition in life?
My ambition is to be an inspiration to my fellow youth. I also aim to have my own business in the Philippines. I'll be more than happy to help my parents build our "Family House". At the same time provide for my family and my future. {source}

HOBBY
Movie Marathon

TALENT
Singing

EDUCATION
4th year Mass Communication student from the University of Mindanao, and a graduate of vocational course in Information Technology with honors.

Why did you join Misters of the Philippines? 
There are many reasons for entering a pageant like Misters of the Philippines, and there is a story behind each one. I personally joined this pageant because of my friends and family. They encouraged me because of the enticing prizes and advantages for me if I win—especially a chance to compete in International competitions and visions of future fame.

What is the importance of pageants like Misters of the Philippines in our country today?                
Male pageants are also important in our society. The participants/winners become ambassadors to relaying certain messages the people who make the world go around and contribute towards achieving “world peace”. Through them, the level of awareness of world issues such as AIDS, Child Abuse, War, etc, are increased tremendously and so does funding for the various programs that we may have for such issues. When someone who has extremely good looks and could sound sensible tells you something, you will listen and agree. In this case its good looking women and powerful men need to say more.

What is your advocacy? Tell us something about it.  
My Advocacy is to promote the Anti-Bullying Campaign—the most common problem in our society today. Bullying can cause self-pity and lack of self-confidence to the victims. This is sometimes the reason why they tend to kill themselves. Sadly, this is more evident in the youth. Bullying is the most common form of violence in many places (verbally and physically).  I will stand for treating people fairly, with respect to who they are, and I will speak up for those who are not treated with respect. I can be counted on to remind other people when they are not treating others with respect and consideration for their individuality and I promise to act against bullying whenever and wherever I see it.

What is the best thing about being a Filipino?
The best thing about being Pinoy is the fact that we practice “Pagmamano”—our respect for the elders. While respect for elders can be shown in various ways, Pagmamano is THE Filipino way. Using “Po at opo” shows the importance and respect accorded to the elderly and the authority. Children in the Tagalog areas are taught and trained to this before and after every sentence. And of course we also have “Festivals”. The fun-loving nature of the Pinoys is manifested in the different festivals for which they spend much time and effort celebrating.

What is your ambition in life?
To become successful businessman in the future and a loving husband to my wife and a good father to my children. {source}

Why did you join Misters of the Philippines?
Misters of the Philippines would be a door in reaching out people by means of representing different cultures, ethnicity, beliefs and most of all showing expressions of how we love the country and respecting the differences. I believe my purpose would emerge as to connect the dots of differences and link the puzzles, through and with the help of this pageant, Misters of the Philippines.

What is the importance of pageants like Misters of the Philippines in our country today?
Unity, harmony, oneness -our being interconnected are the keys in order to build a strong and unified country. Pageants like this are represented by different people from different places. Each person carries with him/her the culture of his/her province and everything the person is representing. Now, the function of these pageants is to cut the gap, connect the people, reveal the similarities and make these people as a one voice shouting in harmony for our beloved country.

My advocacy is to help our church, our family ministry, and extend it to everyone. This ministry focuses on kids. We conduct Sunday services for them, help with their schooling; the best way we could by extending our moral support or assistance to them. We want to set as an example for them and inspire them so we could bring them fun through this particular sport. We encourage them to be good at which is skim boarding or surfing, also art and tutorials with academics. We believe that if you start something good to others as early as the ages of these children, you instill something to their dreams that will eventually serve as an inspiration for them to always choose decisions in their own personal lives that will uplift their way of life as they grow up.

What is the best thing about being a Filipino?
The best thing about being a Filipino is by having the word 'i' and 'o' in its vowels. Representing 'i' as I as every person living in the country and 'o' as become One as a nation; Filipinos respecting one another and holding one's hand for the betterment of each and every Filipino wherever you are.

What is your ambition in life?
My ambition in life has always been to make the most out of the present. And that is utilizing every single opportunity that comes my way. I simply believe life is a gift. You can only maximize if you choose to live and be the best that you can be, NOW.{source}
