Pageants[edit]

Mutya ng Pilipinas 1979[edit]

Schuck was crowned Mutya ng Pilipinas Asia 1979[1] by Mutya ng Pilipinas Asia 1978, Epifania Lagman.

Miss Asia Quest 1979[edit]

Schuck represented the Philippines at the Miss Asia Quest 1979 pageant in Manila, Philippines, where she finished as second runner-up to Ayla Atlas of Turkey. Maureen Mary Lestourgeon of India was the first runner-up but relinquished the position due to film commitments. The runners-up moved up one position and Schuck became the first runner-up.

Carousel Productions and Miss Earth[edit]

Ramon Monzon,[2] Anna Melissa Ofilada "Peachy" Veneracion, and Schuck[2] created Carousel Productions as the pageant organizer for the Miss Asia Pacific International pageant based in the Philippines. The organization decided to leave Miss Asia Pacific International and replace it with another international beauty pageant. In 2001 Carousel Productions organized and launched the Miss Earth beauty pageant, to actively promote the preservation of the environment. Since then, the Miss Earth has become one of the Big Four international beauty pageants, alongside Miss Universe, Miss World, and Miss International.

In 2004, Monzon, Veneracion, and Schuck formed the Miss Earth Foundation, which focuses on educating young people in environmental awareness.
