“Oh and what a ride it has been! Truly eye-opening and life-changing. My heart swells with so much pride, love and honor that a simple person like me was able to walk the stage of the world and leave a mark that will forever remain,” she gushed. “To my beloved Philippines, Mahal kong Pilipinas — this is just the beginning of an exciting and meaningful journey ahead!”

Perez also addressed fellow Filipinos, noting that they are “seen,” “heard” and “never forgotten.”

“Now I know in my heart that this is truly where I belong, para kay Nanay at para sa Pilipinas (for my mother and for the Philippines), I will always be of service. With love, Tracy Maureen Perez,” she told fans, calling herself “forever and always your everyday Filipina.”

Perez was among the 97 delegates who competed for the Miss World crown, but only 40 were asked to attend the finals night held in Puerto Rico last week, March 17. The Cebuana beauty queen finished in the top 13 and was also one of the winners in Miss World’s Beauty with a Purpose and Head-to-Head challenges.

Karolina Bielawska of Poland was crowned Miss World 2021, while Miss USA Shree Saini was named first runner-up and Miss Cote d’Ivoire Olivia Yace placed second runner-up.  /ra
