Two national pageants presented their official rosters of candidates last week before the members of the press and Showbiz Sosyal was fortunate to cover the twin events.
Miss World Philippines 2016 officially kicked-off with the press presentation of twenty-five candidates held at the historic Sampaguita Gardens in New Manila, Quezon City. Two lovely ladies, Sarah Margareth Joson and Ralph Lauren Asuncion sat for an interview for Pageant Corner and here are some tidbits of information on the two strong bets.
Candidate No. 7, Sarah representing Manila, is a perennial pageant finalist having competed and emerged as strong finisher at the maiden Miss Republic of the Philippines and Miss Manila Pageants. She studied as a full scholar at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines and finished Bachelor of Science in Business Administration major in Human Resources Development Management. Sarah is a former SK chairperson of Manila and is currently working as senior product specialist and youth motivational speaker. Her purpose in joining Miss World Philippines is to continue her advocacy, "Charity Starts from Home”.
Candidate No. 23 Ralph Lauren Asuncion is a twenty-five year old stunner representing Batangas. Lance, as she is fondly called, is a graduate of a Business Management Course at San Sebastian College and migrated to the US in 2012 and became a part-time model and actress while working as a manager in one of the most popular stores in the US which is Abercrombie and Fitch. Her idea of Beauty with a Purpose, which is the main theme of Miss World, is to be the voice to be heard on causes that she is advocating which includes improvement of the livelihood and economic status of the less privileged especially the fishermen of her native Batangas Province.
The Miss World Philippines 2016 Grand Coronation Night will be held on September 25 at the Manila Hotel to be telecast at GMA Channel 7.
Meanwhile, the second batch of lovely candidates for Miss Finessa Aesthetica 2016 were presented in an event sponsored by Primera at Packo’s Grill Restaurant along Sgt. Esguerra, Quezon City.
