A truly inspiring tale of an Aeta beauty from Mariveles, Bataan was featured in the MMK episode “600 Pesos” on Saturday, March 30. Crowned as the Mutya ng Biaan 2019 and ranked ninth in the Mutya ng Mariveles 2019, Judith Manap made the whole Aeta community proud of her as she represented their tribe well. Not only that because she used her title as a beauty queen and the cash prize that she got from the pageant to give back to her community through giving food to her fellow Aetas, to continue her studies, and to help her family financially.
Maymay Entrata was able to play the role of Judith and she admits that her story is nothing but a tale of determination, dreams, and diligence. These things helped Judith to go for her dreams and turn them into reality. Through her smile, we can say how happy she is with what she has reached in her life and how proud she is with her achievement, which she dedicates to her tribe.

In times where discrimination is prevalent especially among Aetas, featuring their stories, such as those of Judith, really contribute to letting everyone know untold stories of our indigenous people, which include their everyday struggles and the challenges they face.
