Siason-Villa won the Miss Teen MassKara International crown during the 43rd MassKara Festival in Bacolod City in October 2022. She was a first-timer in the field of pageantry.

Siason-Villa said she was grateful to God, her family, the organizer, and those who believed in her that she made it to the top despite her being a neophyte.

Initial reports have it that she will be competing against 34 other candidates coming from various countries, and that she is preparing hard for the said competition.

This is the second opportunity for her to compete but the first time on the international stage. “This is quite challenging. I can slowly feel the pressure but still, I keep my faith in God and that He will bless me while I do my best to bring home the crown,” she said.

For Pineda, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Siason-Villa to represent the Philippines on the international stage.

“Let's support her on her quest to raise our Philippine flag in the International pageant,” he urged Bacolodnons.

Her mother said that her daughter can win if she desires to win.

“It's in her hand how she will bring home the crown. She knows her capability,” the lawyer said.

But she likewise advises her to also know and acknowledge her weakness “so that she will know her limitations and at the same time work for her strength.”

“You have to conquer your fear. You have to face the challenge with courage and be a solution-oriented person,” her mother told her.

She added that “as long as she has the focus and determination, she will be able to bring home the crown.”

“I am optimistic for Lyza that she can win the crown. I am also doing my part and those with our family in giving Lyza the needed support financially, and emotionally,” her mother added.

Siason-Villa also received inspiring messages from her fellow beauty titlists that will for sure boost her morale in joining the competition.

She thanked everyone for showing their support as she vowed to do her best to represent the country well. Also, she thanked her family as well as those who helped her, especially in coaching and training for various categories.
