The Igorota also bagged special awards:

  • Darling of the Press

In her Cultural presentation during the MPE competition, she said, "am proud Igorota, am proud Filipina". Some asked what does "Igorota" mean. Roxie's maternal roots are from the Kankanaey/ Aplai tribe of the Cordillera and this is how she defines "Igorot".
