Three things come to mind when I think of Miss International – Culture, education and international understanding. These three works together to make the brand of the Miss International beauty pageant relevant to the global community and to our time.
If I become Miss International 2016, I will devote myself to cultural understanding and international understanding because I believe that it is with developing in each of us sensitivity to other cultures that we expand our horizons, tolerate difference, and appreciate diversity.
All these enable us to achieve international understanding. And I believe I’m prepared to take on this responsibility.

Yan kadalasan ang sukatan ng pagiging ikaw. Tatanungin ka kung sino magulang mo, kung san province mo, kung saan ka nakatapos ng college. Kung anong course mo, kung anong favorite food mo, lahat yan, they define who you are.
Pwede natin idagdag kung dog or cat -person ka. Importante din minsan ang favorite color, Globe ka ba o Smart, mahilig ka ba sa junk food, o kung may laman ang bank account mo.
Yung name mo, kung saan nakuha – always yan topic. Places you have been, places you want to see – these things bring value to you. Tataas ang market value mo, kung naka-vape ka at hindi ka naka-Philip Morris.
Pati accent mo at grammar mo sa English, these define you.
