Joy Antonette Diaz, 22, represents Dagupan, but grew up in the United States. A Political Science graduate from the University of California, Irvine, she plans to take up Law and become a family lawyer in the future. She decided to come back to the Philippines to rediscover her roots and join Binibining Pilipinas after graduation.
While her return to the country has been smooth sailing so far, Joy admits that it was hard for her to be away from her family, since it was the first time she was away from them. “But I learned to be independent, and I came to appreciate the Filipino culture more than ever. Our country is so beautiful,” she says.
Her hobbies include baking, singing, and playing sports such as basketball and pole vaulting. She is passionate about helping the less fortunate and hopes that when she becomes a lawyer, she can fulfill her dream of helping others.
Binibining Pilipinas 2014 Grand Coronation Night happens on March 30.
