The Miss World Philippines 2013 has been named together with the list of winners and runners-up! And if you have missed the televised broadcast of GMA 7 or have slept and tired of sitting through the long commercial breaks, here’s a recap of the question and answer portion of the top 5 candidates.
“Why do you want to be Miss World Philippines?” is the question that has to be answered by the top 5 candidates namely: #10 Janicel Lubina, #5 Zahra Saluda, #19 Bianca Paz, #18 Omarie Linn Osuna and #20 Megan Young.
The question was given by Miss World 2012 Yu Wenxia via video. Since there is only one question, the top 5 were isolated backstage and cannot hear anything from there.
#5 Zahra Saluda
“When I was 10 years old, I told my parents I wanted to become part of the United Nations. Why? Because I want to be an Ambassadress of Goodwill. Even before this competition, I have done many charities and I intend to continue them even after whether I win or lose. So being part of Miss World Philippines and winning as Miss World Philippines will allow me to help even more children and hopefully you will give me that privilege and honor and that responsibility, and I am willing to accept it wholeheartedly. Thank you very much and have a good evening.”
#10 Janicel Lubina
“I would like to be Miss World Philippines because I will be an effective Miss World Philippines.
Because I would like to unite physical beauty with that beauty that has a charitable heart. I’d like to be a credible pilgrim… bringing a message of hope, perseverance and determination to the world. Know people can relate with my humble beginnings that poverty is not a hindrance to reach one’s dreams. Encouraging everyone that beauty is not just the physical but also the time to give one’s self to others , that’s the essence of Miss World: beauty with a purpose, beauty and giving. Thank you!”
