She describes herself as a fighter and said that joining the reality show changed her views when it comes to dealing with people.

“I learned how to get along well with the other models during the contest. I got to know their personalities. You can’t be fierce or meek in this kind of contest. You have to maintain a certain balance in dealing with your fellow competitors,” said Krisha.

She had to resign from her job to join “The Fiercest of Them All” and she didn’t regret doing so. “I wanted to test my level of competitiveness. Can I do it? I also want to find out if I am pasaway or if I am a happy person,” she related.

Krisha said one valuable lesson she learned in the competition was to be truthful and to face challenges head on. She admitted that she missed her sister and her mom while she was camped out with the rest of the contenders in an undisclosed place. “But I told myself that I should not be sad but instead focus on the tasks given to us.”

In case there is an offer join showbiz after “The Fiercest of Them All,” Krisha expressed interest to work with Coco Martin in a drama project. If she is offered to go sexy, she will go for it, if the price is right.
