Hi World Class Beauty Queens Magazine! Thank you for having me. My name is Catherine Roque. You can call me Cathy. I am 29 years old and stands 5 feet tall from the Republic of the Philippines. I am born, raised and works in the Philippines. I am the youngest in my family. I came in from a family of athlete swimmers. I too was groomed but left and went to theater (acting, dancing, singing). At this very moment, I am still moving in my Plan G journey. In this journey, this isn't my main plan and dream. This is a self dare and I believe a God given chance and opportunity in my third life. I had moments wherein I was about to be dead head on but due to God's unexplained miracles, I am alive today. I am a bullied survivor as well, but it made me grounded and understand others better. In this Plan G, they said I can't be a Model; they said I can't be a Beauty Queen. So I did. I made the choice to try it when I was at one of my lowest moments in my life. No money, shattered dreams, lost spirit, no life. I wake up and sleep crying. No zest for life even doing what I love. One day, I realized that I don't want to carry this kind of life anymore, so I thought of all the things my haters said I can't be and can't do from the moment I was bullied at 2 years old till that time. And so, I brushed myself and started doing all the things my haters said I can't be. My modeling and pageantry journey all weren't easy at some period but at the perfect moment it all became easy. I am forever grateful for this chance. It's always one person from the industry that believed in me and the domino, ripple effect continues on. But in this Plan G journey, my dream to tell stories, pay it forward, connect people and represent the Philippines are still intact. I am more grounded and my life mission seemed like a much suited approach and strategy. I don't regret experiencing anything in my life as it made me more kinder, understanding and grounded. Aside from my pageant life, I am a Signed Professional Published Petite Model, government employee, Writer, Author, Program Manager- Philippines, Assistant Editor, Recognized Visual Artist (India, Turkey, Rome, Canada, Egypt), CEO, Ambassador, Student Writer and student of life. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Please tell us about your education. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Communication major in Media Production in Assumption College, San Lorenzo, Makati City, Republic of the Philippines. For my basic education from Pre- School to High School, I've studied in San Beda College Alabang, Alabang Hills Village, Muntinlupa, Republic of the Philippines. I also have been studying through various workshops, seminars, programs and online learning systems. From acting to performing to makeup to modeling to pageantry to leadership to Psychology to Forensic Science. My recent accomplishment in terms of education is my Empowerment Academy Silver Spokesmodel last March 2022. For the leadership aspect, I've successfully accomplished with flying colors my Global Diplomacy: the United Nations in the World with University of London and Moral Foundations of Politics with Yale University through Coursera. I am still a student in modeling and writing. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What does women Empowerment means to you? Women Empowerment means that we uplift each other regardless who we are, what we are, what we believe in, what breaks us and makes us. Going down and lifting each other up. Respecting understanding and accepting each other. When we empower the women, we empower the little girls to grow beautifully; we empower mothers in whatever stage to enjoy the journey and become good mothers to their children that can make and break their child. Fostering love, understanding, acceptance and safe spaces. Witnessing and experiencing these uplifts souls and empowers the next even if they're not the main target. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Tell us about your pageant history. I consider myself as a newbie. But as per our Empowerment Academy Director, I am already a part of the experts. Why am I a newbie? Because I need to learn more and to respect this field more. I started in 2020. My first title is an international one. I didn't undergo local and national pageants. I am not your typical Beauty Queen and I'm here to stay. From Miss Uniworld Philippines 2020 (till whenever) to Miss Universal Queen Team Member to Executive Vice President Mr. & Miss Nigeria Golden Heart to Miss World of Winners London 2020 Second Runner Up to Miss Central Asia Milestone Global International World Pageant 2021-2022 to National Director Miss Legacy Philippines to Miss CosmoGlobe UK Overall Grand Champion Top 6 and Miss Congeniality 2021 to Mr and Miss Cosmic 2021 onwards online event to Empowered Women PH Paranaque Candidate 2021 (till resume) to Miss Glamourfaces Philippines Paranaque City Official Selected Candidate (2021) to Empowerment Academy Silver Spokesmodel 2022 to Worlds Ms. Philippines Continent 2022 to one of the official Candidates for Miss Regal World representing the Philippines. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What inspired you to do your first pageant? To tell you quite frankly, its a decision to try and challenge myself. To try. To see if I have a shot in this and if I can grow in here (pageant world). And for a challenge as I heard a handful of people saying "I can't" through words and actions. I was about to raise my invisible white flag in 2020 as I got no positive and concreate outcomes. No matter how much I try to learn and get in. But then an angel, the Owner of Uniworld Pageants reached out to me out of the blue. We don't know each other. I was surprised and hesitant. Because I knew I'm not the usual "Beauty Queen" material as I see it around me and are very familiar how it is, usually. I asked her if she was sure. And informed her of my physical standing; 5 feet tall, slim, fair skin, 27 years old. She said she knew. She didn't hesitate or change her mind. In a snap, she said she wants me to be her Miss Uniworld Philippines. She loved everything about me. After she gave me this big wonderful opportunity and I accepted, everything became light and quite fast. I believe because she opened the door for me and believed in me so much that even if some of the initial reasons that she loved me then are not present anymore, she still loves who I am. Because of her, I became a lot in the pageant industry. Her belief rippled and continuously doing the domino effect in my life in which I am very much grateful for. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Why did you choose to compete for your current title? My Miss World of Winners title, due to learning and having that "you only live once" approach in life. It was given and I accepted. My first online pageant in the 2020 pandemic time. My Empowerment Academy Silverspokesmodel title, due to I was really lost then. I hit a personal down fall. I want to find my way of a redirection. I was very emotional so I tried to find my way by learning. It was also for my Milestone Pageants. To prepare and learn as I got overwhelmed with having the Miss Central Asia title. A Filipina representing five countries. So I got myself in to this to calm myself. At first it was the Fall virtual pageant but then our Director decided to transfer me to the Academy. So I did and completed despite having the virus and recovered with a new approach in life and pageantry. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: To those unfamiliar with your pageant system please tell us what is it about? My Miss World of Winners experience then isn't the same as to the present one. There are a handful of changes. But during my time in the virtual pageant, it was very relaxed and focused into you being and giving that "wow". You can do whatever you want to do. It is a pageant celebrating your "wow-ness" as an individual. My Empowerment Academy experience and as to what it is about, is that it is about being "an overall empowered woman". It doesn't focus into one aspect of you being an aspirant candidate or a candidate representative or a Beauty Queen title holder, it also focuses into other aspects of you as a person. It gives a warm platform and message that you win when you feel good about you, your life and journey. It's not focused into just "winning" the title, it's your wellbeing as well. It welcomes anyone and everyone who plans to make the world a kinder place to live in. It's a 7 month long (or more depending on the initial interview assessment) personally tailored fit to you kind of program. After each Benchmark, you'll be graded by pageant insiders that can give you tips how you can do better. A life student and as a Pageant Country Representative and or Titled Beauty Queen. It's like how academes work but it tailor fits to you; and when you graduate/ finish, you'll be more in touch with yourself and the world around.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What are you being judged on during the competition? For World of Winners, our capabilities to make you go "wow" and if you are confident and comfortable with yourself in showcasing/ selling yourself to the world. For Empowerment Academy, just showcase who you are and they give tips and tricks to better level up your game. All friendly. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Tell us about your experience during the competition. For World of Winners, its my first virtual pageant. I was excited and nervous. I was too focused into the "mold" that I forgot to just enjoy and be myself. It was nice and an eye opener. I got reminded by it and helped me assessed myself when I got into Second Runner Up. For Empowerment Academy, there was and is no competition. We are all presented as ourselves and as a team. Very warm and optimistic. An actual support system and group. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Tell us about your platform or what cause do you volunteer for. As for my platform, I changed it when I had virus and survived. It's the common denominator of everything as well that connects all of it. It is kindness. Kindness starts from our own selves and it goes outward. I believe if we are nice to ourselves, it also affects the world around us. I believe that the more we understand, support, care, love ourselves, we become contented, happy and kind to ourselves. Then if we have that safe space within ourselves, we see the world differently and treat it differently. We become loving and accepting of the differences we see. I am the product one that one ARK (act of random kindness), so I am paying it forward in my own little ways. If I am able to see that my smile infected someone and that person smiled back and became happy interacting with the next person then my mission is accomplished. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What appearances have you done with your title? Appearances? If I may, I want to include everything as it is a domino effect of one title to the next. My appearances are as follows: Fashion Flair Magazine 2021 Lifestyle Magazine India 2021 One Philippines November 2021 World of Winners Magazine November- December 2021 Heart of Hollywood Summer and Spring 2021 DC Magazine 2021 Heartland Model Magazine December 2021 Istilo Pageant and Fashion Magazine 2021-2022 One Philippines February 2022 pp. 33-34 Heartland Model Magazine March 2022 Back Cover and pp. 8-9 Tiara Magazine April 2022 For the new title such that of Empowerment Academy with my tiara and sash beside my story, this will be the first one. Thank you. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What are some of your achievements? Achievements as a Beauty Queen or in other aspects? If as a whole, it will be being able to help my family, provide and be there with my family; share my blessings; being alive; finding real genuine friends; being able to pay it forward; being able to see myself grow and being alive in sharing my story in my third life in my multiple chances in this Plan G. If more to it and with the different meaning of achievements then that will be being able to gain a degree in Bachelor of Communication major in Media Production, being able to ace my diplomacy and forensics online courses. Being able to represent the Republic of the Philippines, Republic of Cuba and Central Asia. Being able to be interviewed by various publications in spreading good cheer.

I believe its my story, purpose, approach in life, fighting spirit, style and personality. In the physical sense, its my height. I only stand 5 feet tall or 152.4 cm with doe eyes and prominent jaws. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Tell us about the moment your name was called out as the winner. For this one, like in any pageant and competition or in anywhere, it is still magical and as if the world stood still and as if my life flashed before me. It tears me up at the same time makes me grounded. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What does it mean to you to be a Beauty Queen? Beauty Queen means to me is someone who has a purpose and mission. Someone who is uniquely herself; confidently beautiful and cares for others. Someone who is responsible and can take in a challenge or challenges. Someone that can be admired and go side by side with in helping the world become better. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: How did competing in pageants helped your life? It helped me BIG TIME. As when I was lost and in one of my biggest downfalls, the pageant community helped me. The same way my modeling, writing and public service did for me. Pageantry helped me in seeing things better and having the opportunity to pay it forward in this medium and way as well. Being an example of what I preach and wanted to see with the world. Pushing boundaries and connecting lives. Making this world a kinder place to live in. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: How did pageants helped your selfesteem and body image? To tell you frankly, I am not the usual "golden standard" of a Beauty Queen. But that didn't stop me from trying then as my goal was to try and see. What matters was I tried and learned. It was still a win. So when I was about to give up and the Owner of Miss Uniworld SA messaged me out of the blue at the very perfect time that I was about to give up in trying. The pageant community; all of the Owners and Directors; all of the Judges and people within and behind loved who I am as me. They call it genuine, raw and sincere. People can't believe I am a Beauty Queen and a representative of these countries; so they show me negative actions and words. But then those who actually matter and from the inside loves me as me and my purpose is being accomplished in every step; so whenever I became sad; they all cheer me up and grounded. I take every challenge as challenge accepted and become so grateful that I am given this chance to do something nice and great for the world. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: You are an inspiration to all the girls out there. How does it feel? Still overwhelming. Humbling. And very grateful. I take it through my heart so whenever I can feel and be grounded and continue moving forward in making every step something good and kind even how simple it may be. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What is your on stage strategy to win the judges over? For the actual stage, I am not so sure. But in the virtual and remote stage as I am a Pandemic Beauty Queen (I started in 2020), just show who I am. As they say people can feel my sincerity. They say they can easily spot me as I am "stylish" and I own every word I say even at times I say things continuously. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: How did you prepare for your competition? I prepared for this by learning through everything I can and have. I asked my pageant friends. I asked my Miss Uniworld SA Director. I asked my pageant team. I focus into my modeling course then. I looked for pageant trainers and schools. I focus into what I can and prepare ahead of time. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What are your tips for learning better pageant walk? Find an inspiration or idol. Focus into yourself and practice. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What are your tips for choosing right pageant dress? Something that is what the pageant is about and that tells you that this dress is you. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What are your tips for winning interview? Just be yourself. Be respectful and kind. Always listen and acknowledge. Don't be afraid of dead air. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What is one mistake that you've done during competing you wish you could redo and fix it? Forgetting to breathe. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What other mistakes are made by girls during the contest? So far, I think whenever they focus into themselves only. It doesn't hurt to relax and mingle for a bit if not all the time and you're not the type of person who is social. World Class Beauty Queens: Any modeling or acting experience? Yes. I started acting since I was in Elementary. Grade 3 to be exact in our school club and in my favorite broadcasting network in the Philippines. My acting Teachers and Coaches are from theater, TV and film. My last was with Ogie Diaz in 2018 I think? I appeared in Chenelyn! Chenelyn! Ang Prinsesang Muchacha, Annie, Prinsipe ng Buwan.

I want to leave behind a kinder world. That anyone can be somebody and that everyone has a reason and purpose in this life. I want to leave a legacy wherein I can shake anyone about anything and make them see and realize the world is kind and they have to be gentle with themselves as well. Loving and accepting yourself truly makes a difference in anyone.
