Winwyn Marquez overwhelmed by Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas win
She’s finally wearing a crown on her head.
Actress-dancer Winwyn Marquez is now a certified beauty queen as she clinched the Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas title at the recently concluded Miss World Philippines 2017 pageant held at the Mall of Asia Arena.
In her post, she was just too overwhelmed about her victory. As she said it, “I can’t believe that I finally have a crown on my head and that I’ll be representing the PHILIPPINES in an international pageant. The first ever Filipina to compete in Reina Hispanoamericana.”
She then expressed her gratitude to all her suporters, especially now that she’s going global: “Maraming maraming salamat po sa lahat ng sumuporta and naniwala saakin!! Hindi po madali ang sasalihan ko pero alam ko kakayanin ko po dahil sainyo.. Laban Pilipinas.”
(Many thanks to all those who supported and believed in me. My journey [to the international pageant] will not be easy but I [know I can] do it because of you. Fight, Philippines.)
Marquez will be representing the country in the pageant to be held in Bolivia.
Laura Lehmann is now Miss World Philippines 2017. She was crowned by outgoing Miss World Philippines 2016 Catriona Gray and Miss World 2016 Stephanie del Valle from Puerto Rico.
Other winners include Cynthia Thomalla as Miss Eco Philippines, Sophia Senoron as Miss Multinational Philippines, Glyssa Leian Perez as the 1st Princess and Zara Carbonell as the 2nd Princess. JB
