This pageant is very important for Alexia because of the scholarship up-stakes for the winner. But of course, it was very important also for Isabelinos because Alexia will represent the Isabela. And for the winners of this pageant;  they will be tasked to bring and promote the distinct Philippine heritage to other parts of the world. If Alexia will win, the Isabelino heritage and culture will be promote around the world. Is that amazing?

I would like to commend also for the great effort and artistry of Mundang Macugay as Alexia's handler and make up artist. The real beauty queen rely on the magic touch of the make up artist.
