Cordillera - Featuring platforms for market matching, KADIWA retailing, agribusiness investment fora, and new normal marketing discussions, the ASPIRE was attended by 111 farmers and entrepreneurs across Cordillera. 

Organized through DA’s Agribusiness and Marketing Assistance Division (AMAD), this year’s ASPIRE revolves around agribusiness resiliency amidst global uncertainties posed by the coronavirus pandemic.

The launching was attended by Miss Earth-Water 2020 Roxanne Allison Baeyens, DA-CAR Regional Executive Director Cameron Odsey, PCCI-CAR Executive Director Trinidad Trinidad, DTI-CAR Regional Director Myrna Pablo, and DA-CAR Technical Director Danilo Daguio.

During her speech as keynote speaker, Miss Earth-Water 2020 shared her experiences during the onslaught of the pandemic. She emphasized that during this current climate of fear and uncertainty she realized that “farming is never a joke.”

Baeyens during her pageant journey has been a vocal supporter and advocate of agriculture. She narrated her encounters with farmers encouraging the youth to take part in “Agriculture as the hope of our country.”

“I also feel for the farmers, I hope that through this ASPIRE, they would be able to earn what they deserve. Farmers work hard to be able to provide for their families. To create a way of living, to send their children to school, so I hope we consider that because their dreams are valid,” shared the Igorota beauty queen.

"This costume was inspired by the legend of Malakas and Maganda, a folktale in the Philippines where humanity has started.

The bamboo that was broke in half by the bird, a symbol of where we could fly again. As the Earth faces this pandemic, this costume proudly synthesizes the hardships of those who battled the pandemic with its headpiece that can be converted into a mask, made out of rubber curves and gemstones.

A crown that is pictured like a sun, the rise of new beginning. The dress that resembles colors that of the Earth, a nature we see through its beauty, a picture of Malakas and Maganda's originality. Cut out from beads that mirror the leaves and gemstones.

Jewelries around the neck, hands and feet inspired by the roots of trees, to remind that we are rooted to the planet we call Earth.

A pair of wings carved with rubber slices, capiz and stones, like we are ready to fly. 

Within this costume, it can be said that the sun will rise, we will try, and we will fly again, like a folktale we all know. We are all beautiful creatures who are strong."

The 23-year old Igorota beauty queen is a native of Besao, Mt.Province. She will vie for the title of Miss Earth 2020 which will be held on 29, November this year.
