KAHIT NA maituturing na baguhan o ‘newbie’ sa mundo ng beauty pageants, winner kaagad ang singer/actress model na si Emmanuelle Vera!
Pagkatapos masungkit ang Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas 2021 crown noong Oktubre ay kaagad na ipinadala ang dalaga sa Bolivia para i-represent ang ating bansa para sa Reina Hispanoamericana 2021. With less time to prepare, our dear queen slayed!
“With only a few preparation days and an incredible team behind me, I’m thrilled to say that I’m finally equipped to take on this challenge,” post ni Emmanuelle bago lumipad patungong Bolivia.
Si Miss Mexico Andrea Bazarte ang nanalo bilang Reina Hispanoamericana noong October 31, 2021 habang nasungkit naman ng ating dalagang Pilipina na si Emmanuelle Vera ang 3rd Runner-up
Natuwa naman ang mga pageant fans sa sagot ni Emmanuelle sa Q&A portion sa katanungang, “Life after the pandemic has given us a second chance. What do you do now and why?”
“I stand before you today receiving my second chance. The pandemic rendered me jobless and hopeless. But through faith and perseverance, I rose again.”
“But I realized that many Filipinos, countless Filipinos did not have the same opportunity as I did. Throughout the pandemic, I had the privilege of volunteering, raising funds, and serving the less fortunate in my country. I witnessed their situation and I realized that I will never be the same. And now, because of the pandemic, I choose to see people through the lens of empathy to give them kindness and to act in genuine selfless love. And to live a life that serves a purpose that is bigger than myself and is of service [to] my fellowmen,” with full confidence na sagot ng ating representative.
Pak na pak! Congratulations, Emmanuelle! We are so proud of you!
