Question: Do people think you're not intelligent just because you're beautiful?

Answer: Well for me... beauty is not only the physical...It is beauty of the intellect, beauty of our...insights. And I see that...people misjudge those who are beautiful. We are beautiful within which shines through, for myself, through a beautiful smile. Thank you.

Melody is also the reigning Mutya ng Magayon 2008 and Miss Bicolandia 2008.

The Mutya ng Magayon pageant was held in April 2008 while Miss Bicolandia happened during the Peñafrancia Festival last September 2008. That means, Melody has won three titles in less than a year.

It took 10 years for a Bicolana beauty to snatch a Binibining Pilipinas title once again after Miriam Quiambao in 1999.
