Aside from her training for this competition, she has been doing a lot of charity work and inspirational activities at the back of the camera and media exposure. That is why her noble activities made her supporters the “SpectaHuelars,” decided to create “noise” for her, campaigning for her and cheering for her.

She is considered as an ambassadress by her supporters who call themselves her ‘fans’ club.

The hardest challenge for her was to go through with life without both of her parents who passed away when she was very young and wishing she had a big family behind her. She is the only girl with five brothers, being the fifth child in the family.

After all her experiences in the competition she has joined in the past, she plans to settle down in the future with her Davaoeño fiancé, PJ Simon, a PBA basketball player.

She will be wearing a Royal blue National Costume designed by a Davao-based Muslim designer, Mr. Neil Patrick Jimlani. Her evening gown is designed by a Davao-based Fashion Designer, Mr. Xioti Chiu, who says that the gown is a structured type of silhouette, in a godet insertion with a half bias circle that represents a temple.

In a brief interview over the phone, Jehza mentions that her favorite color is Royal Blue, which gives her confidence and makes her look and feel regal. Her inspiration is giving her time to the youth who love sports, particularly basketball, especially those who reside in Mandug, Davao City where she grew up.
