Armada hopes that the calamity will serve as a way for Cebuanos to be united particularly in being environmentally proactive and to practice calamity preparedness. 

    The teen winners also took the opportunity to thank the creative brain behind Face of Cebu Mr. Danny Booc. Face of Cebu 2021 winner Kherman Alpasa thanked Sir Danny for helping him gain his confidence and improve his communication skills.

       Ozar Model Philippines Founder, and Face of Cebu head organizer expressed his admiration for this year's batch noting that the teenagers are all well-versed, talented, and willing to learn. "I am running a non-profit organisation purely fueled by passion. I consider these young teens as my trophies," Booc shared.
