2009 marked Diana Arevalo’s first attempt at a Bb. Pilipinas crown. She was 20 then. And she was justly rewarded with a Top 10 placement. Bianca Manalo came out on top.
2011 saw her return to the Bb. Pilipinas stage. For a second-timer at age 22, it would have been a triumphant re-appearance. Alas, her best was just good enough for a Top 15 nod. Shamcey Supsup upended her bid.
2013. Will she make that one final go for a (twice-foiled) victory in the pageant? Turning 24 this year is one clear sign that this will be her Binibini curtain call if ever. Because two years from now, her age will have already reached the set limit.
The stakes are higher. The risks are bigger. And the rewards are greater, if successfully accomplished.
Is Diana Arevalo up to the extremely big challenge?
