Beauty pageants – Miss Philippines Bea Rose Santiago is Miss International 2013
Congratulations to Bea Rose Santiago for winning in beauty pageants and as Miss International 2013! The 53rd Miss International beauty pageant was held in Shinagawa Prince Hotel Hall in Tokyo, Japan on Tuesday, December 17.
Aside from her beauty, it may have been Bea’s sincere answer that won her the crown. In response to “What will you do if you win?” Bea said,
“The whole world saw how my country suffered. One by one, other countries helped. You have opened my heart and eyes on what we can do to help each other.”
She added, “I will work to sustain the spirit of sympathy and spirit of hope. As long as we work together, there is hope.”
Her win was followed by Miss Netherlands Nathalie den Dekker and Miss New Zealand Lorena Hermida, second runner up.
