MISS PALAWAN ANGELICA LOPEZ undeterred by poverty, hunger | PEP Interviews

  • 2 years ago
In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) on Monday, April 18, 2022, the Miss Universe Philippines contestant revealed that she has spearheaded feeding programs and gift-giving activities in her home province over the past few years.

"Actually, I am focusing about less-fortunate children because I have an organization in my city," she said during the after-party at Aqua Boracay.

"I am actually one of the core leaders of that organization. It is a youth organization.

"Over the years, I've been participating [in] that organization, to feed the children and give them gifts every December."

Angelica revealed that her personal experience with poverty and hunger inspired her to pick this as her advocacy, not just for the Miss Universe Philippines pageant, but also for her life outside pageantry.

"It's really close to my heart because I have experienced hunger before and even poverty. Yeah, I myself have experienced that.

"So I have chosen that advocacy because I want to help the people who have experienced the same thing.

"So I just really hope that, you know, I can utilize the platform of Miss Universe Philippines to further help those children, even those outside my province of Palawan."
