“My dad, Luis Calingo, is one of my biggest inspirations, currently he is the president of the Holy Angel University. Both my parents instilled to me the importance of education. My mom, Gem Calingo also made sure that I got good grades and that is why I have taken education seriously. I want to help inspire children to do the same,” the beauty queen said.
