I am grateful and thankful to be in a position of extending my hand to help and embody my real purpose in life and to act to that purpose with courage & strength.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Please tell us about your Education. I studied Bachelor of Science in Accountancy. The big dream is to become a lawyer but life has chosen a different path for me. I, instead, landed as a Businesswoman in the Hotel Industry. Currently, I am also doing an online Business.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What does women Empowerment mean to you? For me, Women's empowerment means to promote social awareness in uplifting poor societal conditions. Prestige Pageants offer the opportunity to promote programs that endeavor the development of one`s personality, confidence, self-esteem and skills that are essential for a brighter future that can be passed to the next Generation.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Tell us about your Pageant History. I just started my pageants not so long ago. When I came to Germany in 1987, I was so busy with family and business that I didn't have the time to socialize with others and attend different parties. In 2020, I was one of the finalists of the Mrs Euro Philippines Universe but due to COVID Pandemic, it was re-scheduled several times and the actual pageant happened last June 11, 2022. Before Pandemic, I was also supposed to join other local pageants but was not pursued. Instead, my Director Helen Y. Ligutom appointed me directly to represent Germany to the Mrs Classic Universe that was held in Estonia last October 2021. After this, I was also appointed directly by my Director to represent Mrs Continental Europe to the Mrs Universe pageant that happened last July 2022 in South Korea. On June 11, 2022 I competed in the Mrs Euro Philippines Universe and have won the title as Mrs Ambassador Universe 2022 and Queen of Philanthropy 2022.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What inspired you to do your first Pageant? I am inspired to join beauty pageants because of its sense of achievement and fulfillment. Likewise, the excitement that I have experienced and memories I have made were beyond measures that are worth widening my social horizon and understanding the diversity of people. Furthermore, it is a great privilege and honor to be an instrument since the organization is and will be helping less fortunate people by giving charities.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Why did you choose to compete for your current Title? I choose to compete for my different title to inspire other women that beauty pageants have no age limit. It made me better as a person, boosting my self-esteem and confidence. Aside from that, it helps me achieve camaraderie among other candidates and friendship that I have never experienced before.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: To those unfamiliar with your Pageant, Please tell us what it is about. For Mrs Classic Universe Germany that was held in Estonia, the pageant is a competition with several women around the world. Different criteria have been assessed for the said competition. I had won 4th runner up in that pageant. For Mrs Euro Philippines Universe last June 11, 2022, it is really a heavy competition with different categories to compete with. It is so hard to win since all other contestants were also well prepared and vying for the one crown. It is one of the hardest contests I have ever attended. We were judged by casual wear, production number, charitable activities, swimwear competition, attitude, national costume and evening gown. The top 5 had a Q & A in which all the questions were impromptu. But after the event, I was so satisfied with the results and have won 2 titles as Mrs Goodwill Ambassador Universe and Queen of Philanthropy. For Mrs Universe, I have competed with more than 100 women around the world. This time, the system is different since there were more than 100 women around the world to compete with. In the end, I received the award as Best Phenomenal.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What makes your Director different from others? My Director is such a wonderful person and a role model to us. She molded us to become a better person in the world of pageantry. She supported and helped me to be part of these all amazing opportunities. Aside from her beauty and intelligence, she has that undeniable and contagious radiance that brings Impact and Influence to others.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What are you being Judged on during the Competition? During the competition of Mrs Classic Universe, I really don’t know what were the bases of the judging system because the organizer(s) were not open with us what were the criteria in winning. For Mrs Universe pageant, since it has a lot of competitors, we were judged from day one already until the final show. It was only during I joined the Mrs Euro Philippines Universe that stated clearly in our contract what were the bases of judging. The organization has a pre-pageant judging – attitude, punctuality, personality, charitable works and casual wear. The organization believes that pageantry is more than just a physical beauty but to be a combination of internal and physical beauty. These were judged during our different activities, rehearsals and how we act months before the pageant. Our casual wear was also judged during the dinner activity to see candidates on their natural beauty with almost no makeup or with light make-up. During the final show, the panel of judges judged us on the following: Production number, Swimwear, Traditional costume, Evening Gown, Catwalk, Projection & Poise and the top 5 finalists had the Q & A. There were also other extra Queens that were judged based on the following: Mrs Goodwill Ambassador Universe – for sponsorship if there were any and will be used for extra charitable projects of the organization; Queen of Charity- the candidate with most charitable deeds in the past; Queen of Philanthropy-the candidate with most guests invited , as a form of appreciation and efforts invested for the event.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Tell us about your experience during the competition. I have had a different experience in every competition I have attended. But one thing for sure, my greatest learning experience is you can find friendship in your competitors, that this whole pageant journey brought about making new relationships, gaining new friends and camaraderie. As we go along, we discover how amazing their personalities are and over time, it will come to a point where you don't see them as co- contestants any more but as friends.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Who would you recommend your system to: I would like to recommend the pageant system of the Mrs Euro Philippines Universe to all women and or organizers to learn from them. Their system is very open, transparent and systematic. Candidates can compete fairly and criteria were given beforehand for a candidate to be able to prepare properly. Further, other organizers can learn from them that it is not about money but empowering women and achieving their highest potential to be the best version of themselves.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Tell us about your Platform or what cause do you volunteer for? For now, my platform is in collaboration with my director. Her organization has already supported and given charities to many different areas in the Philippines. This coming November, in which I am also one of the collaborators as one of the Mrs Goodwill Ambassador Universe grand winners, we will be conducting a charity project for more than 400 children in which more than 90 % are native or katutubo children. This will be in one area in Mindanao. I'm looking forward to this kind of charitable activity and I will continue to support my director in her charitable deeds.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What appearances have you done with your title? Since the Mrs Euro Philippines Universe 2022 and Mrs Universe, I don’t have any appearances yet due to working schedules. This would be my first interview in this World Class Beauty Queen Magazine.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What makes you stand out from all those beautiful girls? I have a huge determination to achieve something that I´ve been dreaming of and to be acknowledge of who I am. Having supportive friends and families who have been there all the way on my different pageant journeys count a lot, as not all women are having that kind of support. Aside from that, having this as a childhood dream, I am ready and equipped with all what it takes.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What does it mean to you to be a Beauty Queen? To me, it means a lot since it is my childhood dream. To be a Beauty Queen is more than just the physical beauty of a person but through character and how you treat people with respect and kindness. Once you become a Beauty Queen, you become a role model to others. That is why it is important to stay humble and friendly to everyone. Most of all, continue to share the blessings to others and give back to those who are in need. In this way, I will become an instrument to make a contribution to the service of this world
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: How did competing in Pageants help your life? During the different pageants I attended, I met numerous and different kinds of women from all over the world. I met different women with various personalities, character and mentalities. At first, I thought, ohhh… what amazing beauties they were, that I thought I was in the wrong place or in the wrong circle of people, but at the end of the event, I realized how amazing these women are. In short, it boosts my self-esteem, confidence and that I am so ready to “rock the world”.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine : How did Pageants help your self-esteem and body image? By being part of these different Beauty Pageants, I expect to gain opportunities to discover my strength and perfect them. I realized that I was able to transform my weakness into strength and radiate women to love themselves and inspire them to develop themselves to become their best version.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: You are an inspiration to all the girls out there. How does it feel? Being an Inspiration to all the women out there reached the fulfillment of my existence. I hope that I am able to inspire them to be the best version of themselves.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What is your stage strategy to win the judges over? During the actual competition, I always showed that I am confident and walk with grace and glamour. I gave my smile to show that I am happy doing my catwalk. In the end, I am always content with my achievements and awards.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: How did you prepare for your competition? Before the different pageants I attended, I prepared myself mentally and physically. I also tried a special diet to be comfortable in my own skin and body. I also selected and prepared all the different outfits of the pageant. I always made sure that I would not be as stressed out as possible during the day of the event. During the actual event, my main goal is always to become the Face and Voice of the organization for their charitable activities and I did this especially during my competition of the Mrs Euro Philippines Universe 2022.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What are your Tips for learning better pageant walk? In order to prepare for a better pageant walk, I always watched different pageant videos on Youtube. In this way, I can learn a lot from the previous candidates and winners. I also asked my director to teach me some of the strategies in doing my catwalk. As she is more experienced than me. It will definitely help us Beauty Pageant fanatics to become better in the world of pageantry.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What are your Tips for choosing the right Pageant dress? First, choose dresses that will enhance your physical beauty. There are some dresses that will not fit our body, and it is important for other beauty fanatics to select the best dresses only so that it can radiate us during the catwalk. Finally, as possible collaborate with local or national/international designers since they are more knowledgeable in dealing proper outfits for any pageants.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What are your tips for winning an interview? During an interview, the best thing to do is be real and confident. Just be honest with your feelings and everything will go properly.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What is one mistake you´ve done during competition you wish you could redo and fix it? One mistake I made during a competition is mismatched make-up that doesn’t look good on me. It is better that I keep my face as simple and natural as possible so that I can keep my confidence while walking on the stage.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What others mistakes are made by girls during the contest? During the different pageants, there were several mistakes women encountered. One of the best examples is a last settlement of outfits that can lead to stressful days and unsure feelings of confidence. Not being able to settle on the proper costume and gowns to be worn during the shows will create too much chaos and stress and that automatically will affect the performance of the event.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What are your Plans for 2022 as a Queen? As a Queen, I would like to continue to collaborate with my director in her endeavors of helping, supporting and sharing charities to less fortunate people especially in the Philippines.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What kind of Legacy do you want to leave behind? I would like to be an example of a Beauty Queen with a good heart through helping, supporting and promoting charities to mankind.
