She then stated that beauty is not all about the physical look but the attitude of one towards others. She added:
“What matters is that you have the proper attitude toward other people accompanied by a sweet and kind heart. It’s not all about beauty. It sounds cliché, but if you are a good person a lot of people will like you. And I hope the kids learned that.”
Artajos shared that before she joined the pageant, she was not fond of children but Miss Eart exposed her to activities which led her to liking kids. She cited her realizations and how her encounters with children were like:
“Before I joined pageant I was not really a fan of kids. But as the activities for Miss Philippines Earth contest started, so did my liking for children. When we go to their classrooms and introduce ourselves you could just see the glow in their eyes.”
“This made me realize just how fragile they can be and you could see how their youth can change how people view the environment. Now I love kids!”
The new Miss Philippines Earth is among the personalities who participated in the even. Other readers present were actress Lotlot de Leon and professional storytellers from Ang Pinoy Storytellers and Adarna House.
