Winner's Statement

Winning the first ever The Miss Philippines crown is a real blessing. I was reluctant to join at first since the school term has just started. But when I made the decision to pursue the crown, I gave it my best effort. There were grueling days, especially when TMP events coincide with school deadlines. It was a happenstance that assigned articles in Economic History were relevant to the pageant’s theme and they reflected in the way I approached the final four Q&A, (What is the true identity of the Filipino?).

Spanish writers during colonial times blamed our indolence or “katamaran” as the reason for our economic backwardness compared to our Southeast Asian neighbors. Jose Rizal debunked these claims stating that Filipinos have been productive, thriving, working on the land, and engaging in trade before the Spaniards came. It was not indolence that made us backward but centuries of abuse.

Indeed, we are kayumanggi because we are exposed to the elements when we work, just like the farmers and fishermen in my native town of San Rafael, Bulacan. Our skin tone is the mark of our hard work and “kasipagan”. It forms part of the Filipino identity.
