"The man who has no imagination has no wings"-M. Ali

Tell us a little about yourself, your family background, education.

I am 19 years old and still studying, taking up Hotel Restaurant Management and in my final year. Born and raised in Rome. I'm thankful to my Mom and Dad, I can speak fluent Tagalog. Four years ago, my Dad suffered from a mild stroke, till now he still undergoes therapy sessions, so, I'm like the "Padre de Familia" of my Mom and brother.

How did you become interested in pageants?

It all started 3 years ago, with my height and looks I guess, I attract people.. Haha there's a local pageant here in Rome that wants me to participate. Last year my manager (Cristian de Guzman) convinced me to participate well not only with him, but all of my friends tried to push me to join. Then I started watching pageants on the internet, tried catwalking, tried picturing myself on the stage, so I started to get interested in this thing.

How does it feel to represent the Filipino Community of Italy in Mister United Continents Philippines 2016?

It's very flattering to be the representative of the Filipino Community of Italy. But also nakakakaba ( the pressure is there). (Laughs)

 Give three adjectives that your friends would use to describe you.

Good Looking, Loving and Unique

Tell us about one life-changing experience in your life.

As I said earlier, when my Dad suffered from a stroke that almost killed him, he has been through 3 brain surgeries, so it's a miracle being with him for us now. As an older sibling for my brother and standing as a father of my family and all the things my Dad has been through made me so responsible and mature. Like on weekdays I prefer being at home with my family than to go gimmick with my friends. School, work, home, school, work, home is the usual things I have been doing.

Name three things that you would never do.

Drugs, not to help my family and not to exchange the love that I recieve.

What do you like to do for fun?


What would constitute a "perfect" evening for you?

Movies and popcorns with your loved ones (smile emoticon)

Tell us a little bit about the place that you are representing. What makes it different from most of the provinces, city or other Filipino Communities?

Being here in Rome is very unique than any other places, it offers you a piece of history. Filipinos here are very gentle and nice, they are always there to help their fellow Filipino and I think this is what makes the Filipino community here in Rome different to others.

How will you motivate others to practice sustainable living choices?

I would like to share to them a story of an overweight teenager who chose to change his lifestyle and it also changed his life (smile emoticon).

How would you describe your advocacy to the judges?

"1 apple away, takes all the doctors away" I'd share with them how I was years back, how I changed myself and how it changed my life.

Why do you want to be Mister United Continents Philippines 2016?

I want to help all of the people, with my advocacy I would like to explain to them that every struggle, there's a way, that every drop of your sweat, there's something to wipe it, that every bad time there will be good ones, that suffer now and live your life tomorrow. I would like to help people to live their life with happiness.

Boxers or Briefs?

Boxers, it's very comfortable

Blue or Pink?

Blue, its cute.

Piolo Pascual or Derek Ramsay? 

Piolo, many people here call me Piolo with my mole in the left side of the forhead.

Anne Curtis or Angel Locsin?

Angel, shes a very good actress.

Message to your supporters, friends and family?

I would like to thank you for the support, always remember that without you guys I wont be here and I wont make this big step of my life.

Thank you Francis and we wish you the best of luck as you compete in Mister United Continents Philippines 2016!
