In an interview with Rappler, Valerie said she thought hard about joining the pageant, despite doing modeling and showbiz work. However, it was her advocacy that finally pushed her to go for it.
“For me it was a very big decision of course. Because I was thinking it through over the years actually of me experiencing modeling and showbiz at the same time. So it was good training for me.
“And the really big thing that made me decided to join was really my personal advocacy which is Musikaramay. I try to help the indigenous people -our indigenous brothers and sisters from Tarlac, the Aeta community.”
