My whole life has been a perpetual state of dreaming to be a beauty queen while in service to people. And when it finally came true, I couldn’t help but think of how much blessed I am for the invaluable support and love you guys showed me since Day 1 of my journey. You who genuinely care for me gives me the drive to go for this dream. To my mentors, I owe it to you for sticking around and believing in me that I always have the worth of a daughter to you. To my family and real friends, whom sometimes I haven’t spoken to yet I can never live without – thank you for loving me unconditionally. To my supporters and fans, you are all a huge part of where I am today and where I will be. This crown is for you. Thank you everyone.
When Parul Shah was crowned Bb. Pilipinas Tourism 2014, it was like the culmination of a two-edition search for the recognition that she has promised her family to achieve in the pageant. And while the title is not the most exciting among the five titles at stake, the mere fact that she has solid proof brings to a close the results of her hard-earned efforts. For now, that is.
The Fil-Indian stunner from Pangasinan is in deep anticipation that Miss Tourism Queen International 2014 will push through so that her reign will be highlighted by the chance to go abroad and wear the Philippine sash and hopefully become the country’s 2nd winner of the same.
Same here, Parul. We are all hoping that you won’t trek the Katrina Dimaranan route and instead, show to everyone that you can be a force to reckon with when pitted against delegates from other countries. You can be the brightly-lit lantern (a play of words on the name) that will beam with pride and success.
Best of luck, Binibining Pilipinas! ;-)
