Just when everyone thought Julian Aurine Flores will be representing the country in Miss Progress International 2014 in Puglia, Italy, I was informed that she was never able to leave the country due to a lack of sponsor for her return plane fare to Europe. The local franchise owner should have exerted all efforts to help her in this regard. The girl cannot shoulder everything on her own. Tsk tsk tsk.
Wasted opportunity, if you ask me. She could have been a strong contender in that competition.
At any rate, there could be something else better for Julian. There are still other pageants to join and not worry about matters that should have been the concern of the people behind the appointment.
