The 21-year old kapampangan beauty works as a part-time model, freelance host, and contributor to a travel magazine. She enjoys surfing the net; reading books, magazines, and newspapers; writing poems; and watching films and documentaries. She lists swimming and dancing as her hobbies.
In this year’s Bb. Pilipinas pageant, Helen was awarded Miss Photogenic, Miss Philippine Air Lines and Miss Del Monte Fit ‘N Right.
