She wrote, "I'll get to enjoy the small joys in life like heels and pretty dresses again at the Miss Universe Philippines!... Thank you Kissables and pageant fans and Filipinos for all the love and support! Join me on my journey to #MissUniversePhilippines."
In the same post, she also revealed her three puppies that she named Coffee, Sugar and Cookie.

Back in 2018, the actress expressed her interest to join pageants again, having won Miss Masbate Province and Miss Kaogma in the past.
"I don't have plans yet. For example, when I was joining Miss Kaogma, I just decided I wanted to do it in the week of the screening. I am more of the spontaneous type," she said at the time, adding that she has to catch up more on world issues in order to prepare herself for the Q&A segment.
