“I’m so humbled by your thoughts and words of encouragement in joining this pageant season. Sobrang nakakataba ng puso but due to my work commitments, and upcoming projects with my network, I will not be able to join BBP since I have an existing contract and projects lined up,” Marquez wrote in an Instagram post on Thursday.

“There will always be a part of me that wants to compete in the pageant setting, at masakit din sa akin na hindi ako makakasali pero alam ko na hindi pwede sabay sabay ang lahat ng bagay. Kailangan mag-focus lang po sa isa to be able to succeed and do things well,” she added.

Marquez, daughter of actors Alma Moreno and Joey Marquez, previously competed in Binibining Pilipinas 2015 and finished in the Top 15.

She also competed in the Miss World Philippines 2017 and was later crowned as Reina Hispanoamericana.

Marquez said she now wants to focus on her passion and her work for children.


“Now, I’d like to focus on improving my craft and to continue building on my community engagement program for children in local communities,” Marquez said.  /muf
