Rufa Mi is known for impersonating actress Rufa Mae Quinto. Rufa Mi began as a band singer, joining contests before entering Philippine show business. Rufa Mi auditioned for Pinoy People’s Superstar twice but failed, later entering an impersonation contest and dance audition for the EB Babes dance troupe in Eat Bulaga! One of the EB Babes judges, Andrew de Real, gave her a chance to perform at The Library, a known comedy Barometer
Since then, Joey de Leon gave her the stage name "Rufa Mi" because she bears a resemblance Rufa Mae Quinto. commitments aside, Rufa Mi currently performs at The Library every Friday.
